pork chops- bone-in or boneless, your choice
Salt and pepper to taste
bottle of beer (The darker beer the better. I use New Belguim 1554. I would not recommend going as dark as a Guinness though.)
cup brown sugar
Put a little bit of extra virgin olive oil in the bottom of a skillet. Season the chops with salt and pepper and brown both sides. While pork chops are browning, combine beer, ketchup, and brown sugar in a bowl. Pour sauce mixture over the pork chops and simmer for 40-45 minutes. Remove pork chops and thicken the sauce a bit. In a small cup, combine 1 TBSP of cornstarch in 1/4 cup of water. Stir to combine and add to boiling sauce, whisk so no lumps form. Put pork chops back in the thickened sauce, flip to coat. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice. Have your drink and eat it too!
