Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from chops. Place chops in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For the marinade, stir together the stout, onion, honey mustard, garlic, and caraway seed; pour over chops. Close bag. Marinate chops in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours, turning the bag occasionally.

Instructions Checklist
  • Remove chops; pour marinade into a small saucepan and bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until marinade is reduced by about half. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Arrange preheated coals around a drip pan in a grill with a cover. Test for medium heat above the pan. (Hold your hand, palm side down, in the same place where the chops will cook. count one thousand one, one thousand two, etc. Being able to keep your hand there for a count of four is equal to medium.) Place chops on grill rack directly over drip pan. Cover and grill for 30 to 35 minutes or until the juices run clear, brushing chops frequently with marinade during the last 10 minutes of grilling. Discard any remaining marinade. Makes 4 servings.

To Broil:

Prepare marinade and chops as directed, except place chops on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil with surface of chops 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 18 to 22 minutes or until juices run clear, turning once and brushing frequently with marinade the last 10 minutes of broiling. Discard any remaining marinade.

Menu Suggestion:

Make it a meal with deli-style coleslaw, tomato slices, and grilled onions.
