    I honestly do not understand why this recipe is rating so low!! THE CHOPS were PERFECT!! and super easy too!! I let the chops sit in the sauce for about an hour and a half prior to cooking. This made them super tender!!! I also added in a few 'smashed' cloves of garlic, some pepper, a pinch of cayenne, a dash of dry moustard and a couple dashes of worchestire sauce. Alongside the chops (in the sauce) I also added some largely chopped green and red peppers, and some onions. THEY WERE GREAT and a hit with the family... the beer was the perfect taste... not over powering at all!! LOVED THEM!! I would recommend this one again and again!  -  24 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a simple and good weeknight dish. Made a few changes the 2nd time: I seasoned the chops good with garlic salt and pepper and then browned them. I used only half the beer, adding 8 oz. of water. I topped each chop with a thin slice of onion and then poured the liquid over the chops. I baked covered with foil for 50 minutes, uncovered them and baked 15 min. more. This made them more tender and juicy. I served over rice, but the next time, I'm going to add one cup of uncooked rice to the dish at the beginning. I think this will absorb some of the extra liquid. My family liked the taste of these pork chops.  -  10 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
