Stout Pork Loin ChopsRecipe Index: Main Courses > Pork/Ham
6 - 8 pork loin chops about 2 inches thick
Salt and pepper
8 - 10 fresh sprigs of rosemary or 3 Tbsp. dried rosemary
1 pint stout beer (we use Guinness, of course)
Place pork loin chops in deep dish. Sprinkle on both sides with salt and pepper. Cover both sides with fresh rosemary sprigs and/or dried rosemary. Pour entire pint of stout beer over the chops or up to the top of the dish. Marinate overnight, turning once or twice. Prepare grill with medium hot coals and grill pork loin chops until done, usually about 10 minutes per side but cooking times can vary greatly depending on thickness of chops and heat of coals.
The Skinny: I have never seen light Guinness, thank goodness. Some things are not meant to be light, most particularly Guinness Stout. I am sorry for the subscribers that must avoid alcohol but I know of no substitute for Guinness. Use the leanest chops you can find and trim off any excess fat.
