Drunken Pork Chops


  • 5-6 pork chops bone-in or boneless, your choice1cdc7d15b1b05e7bb78d404049fa9f00
    (I used a thick chop, so add about 15 more minutes cook time if you use thick cut).
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bottle/can of beer (The recipe called for a dark beer, but I just used a can of my husband’s Miller Lite, and it worked fine).
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup


  1. Put a little bit of extra virgin olive oil in the bottom of a skillet.
  2. Season the chops with salt and pepper and brown both sides.
  3. While pork chops are browning, combine beer, ketchup, and brown sugar in a bowl.
  4. Pour sauce mixture over the pork chops and simmer for 40-45 minutes.
  5. Remove pork chops and add one package of Pork Gravy (dried gravy mix), to thicken the sauce a bit. Whisk so no lumps form.
  6. Put pork chops back in the thickened sauce, flip to coat.
  7. Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles and drizzle with some of the gravy.

Found this recipe on the web and played around with it for a bit. This is my version. If you want a sweeter sauce, increase brown sugar to 3/4 cup and decrease ketchup to 1/4 cup.
