Directions

  1. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork chops and shake well to coat thoroughly.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and heat until sizzling. Add pork chops in a single layer. Saute until browned on one side, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Turn pork chops over and cook for an additional 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Transfer pork chops to a plate.
  3. Add beer, vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, and rosemary to the skillet and mix well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Return pork chops to the skillet, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until pork chops are no longer pink in the center, 10 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  4. Transfer pork chops to a plate. Increase heat to medium and boil pan juices in the skillet until thickened, whisking often, about 3 minutes. Top pork chops with sauce.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If your skillet is not large enough to accommodate all 4 pork chops at once, saute them in batches and add more oil or butter if needed.

Delicious! Tastes like something you'd order in an upscale restaurant. Of course, taste will vary greatly depending on what type of beer you use. I used an everyday lager and you'd never guess...

This was good, just not my favorite flavor combination, but I wanted to try it anyway.

Made as written, I had the brilliant idea to use some delicious IPA I had in the fridge. The dish was good but the sauce had a very bitter taste. At first, I thought it might be all that rosem...

this was so savory and easy. Followed directions and used a dark lager. Double the sauce ingredients for more juiciness

Only used 3 tbs of the brown sugar and it was sweet enough. Nice and juicy!

I used a blue moon beer, and a little less rosemary. My kids thought it was a 3.5 star because the pork chop wasn't fall apart tender..adults gave it a 4. Pretty easy to prepare, would make ag...

Tasty, but depends a lot on the beer used. I tried an IPA and I think it would’ve been better with something like a stout. I would also try making it with a honey mustard instead of stone ground...

Easy and delicious. I used Magic Hat brewery’s Pattersbier which is a Belgium-style beer brewed with Rosemary. Perfect for pork.
