Sweet & tangy pork chops

I'm going to refer to the month of March as Pork Month from now on. I didn't plan it this way, but my husband and I have prepared much more pork than usual in the past few weeks. And every tender, juicy bite has been totally scrumptious! I have another pork recipe on my list that I plan to make soon. Mom's Pork Chops! My mother makes the best pork chops under the sun, and I cannot wait to share that splendor with you all. I mustn't get ahead of myself, though. Back to the delicious recipe at hand!

This is how my husband has been preparing pork for the past year or so. I swoon over this recipe. And I swoon over the fact that I have a husband who makes me delicious pork and mouth-watering mai tais.

Combine in a medium bowl:

6 oz. light beer

2 tablespoons brown sugar

3 tablespoons ketchup, with an extra squirt for good measure

Set aside.

Salt and pepper both sides of 3 pork chops. If you plan to make more than 3, double the sauce. You will want plentiful amounts of its deliciousness.

Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook the pork chops for 3 minutes on each side over medium heat.

Pour the beer mixture over the pork chops and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the center reads 160 degrees F.

Remove the pork chops from the skillet and cover them to keep warm. Continue to let the sauce simmer until it has reduced to 3/4 cup, about 5 minutes.

Pour the sauce over the pork chops and serve immediately! I love Pork Month!

These pork chops look fantastic, the sauce especially looks good enough to drink! This is a great weeknight meal when I'm running short on time! Thanks for sharing :o)

Wow those pork chops look sooo good! It's been forever since I've had pork and now I'm craving it at 5:30 am. :)

These look great! Perfect for the package of pork chops I have in the freezer!

Love me some pork chops. These look and sound like they would be delicious. Makes me regret the quick marinade I threw mine in this morning.

Just made these tonight. SUPER QUICK, and OH SO YUMMY! When you mix the beer and ketchup it will smell strange before you pour it in, but after that beer has cooked down, oh how good this dinner was!

Awesome!!!! I am going to start using this sauce as my new go-to bbq sauce! Would be great on baby backs! Thanks!
