Beer Braised Pork

Hello there my foodie friends!  It's been months since my last post about my musings in the kitchen and here I am again with something to share for you!

For some time I have tried a different diet and survived mostly on vegetables and I did not miss eating any kind of meat at all.  However, as I slowly integrated back into the world of omnivores, I can't help "playing" with food and the following recipe is my take on what most people call Beer Braised Pork.
Beer Braised Pork


Pork (chops or butt, even ribs would do!)
black pepper
a few tablespoons of vinegar
a few tablespoons of vegetable oil
a can of your favorite beer


* Rub salt, pepper, and garlic on pork and let stand for 30 minutes or longer.
* Place a few tablespoons of oil in a heated skillet and sear pork for about 5 minutes at each side.
* Add garlic, onions, salt, pepper, a few tablespoons of vinegar and a can of your favorite beer into the skillet.
* Simmer pork in beer and spices.  Add a bit sugar and catsup to taste. Continue to simmer until liquid is reduced.
* When pork is tender, transfer it into a baking or roasting pan and baste with the reduced liquid.  Roast in oven for 10 minutes or in microwave (medium high, and covered with cling wrap) for 20 minutes.
* Before slicing through the pork, let it rest for about 10 minutes from the oven so the juices will remain in tact.
