Beer and food have long gone together. Beer has been used in cooking for as long as wine has. With such a wide variety of beers out there, it’s no surprise that beer can be such a versatile ingredient in the kitchen.
Pork Chops with Dark Beer Sauce & Apples
A Foodies’ Kitchen Original Recipe
4 pork chops
2 granny smith apples (you can add 1 more apple if you want extra fuit for each plate)
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 can dark beer ( look for a sweet tasting beer, rather than a bitter tasting one)
½ teaspoon powdered thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
- Cut the apples into wedges, leave the skin on. Place them in a medium sized bowl and add the grated ginger. Toss to mix.
- Salt and pepper the pork chops, and cook them on a hot pan. About 4 min per side. Set aside.
- In the same pan, add the chopped shallots and brown them, then add the apples, and beer. Let this mixture simmer for about 30 min. It will thicken a little.
- Return the pork chops to the pan, add the powdered thyme. Cover the pan and let cook for about 10 minutes more. Adjust the seasoning.
- Serve with mashed potatoes.
