Deschutes Black Butte Porter Pork Chops

Deschutes Black Butte Porter Pork Chops


2 large ½ inch cut pork chops (center-cut, bone-in)
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup Deschutes Black Butte Porter
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup raisins
2 apples, cored and sliced
¼ tsp rubbing sage
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground pepper


Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over high heat. Rub chops with salt, pepper and rubbing sage. Brown pork chops on both sides. Add beer, cider vinegar, and brown sugar, stir until dissolved, scrapping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Add apples and raisins then cook uncovered until the sauce turns into a syrup like glaze 20-40 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving. Goes great with sweet potatoes.

Note: This recipe would be delicious with most dark beers, just stay away from the hoppier ones.

  1. Oh, I am definitely going to try this recipe. I won’t be able to get my hand on a bottle of Deschutes, but I believe I can find something that will work.
