      Great Chops! Loved the sage and garlic flavors with the Guinness. 1/4 cup of salt looked like a lot of salt for 4 chops, so I halved it. Still rather too salty and I would reduce it further, hence only 4 stars.

      I LOVE this recipe and use it every time we go camping. You can even trade out the Guiness with a Creamy Dark beer (Leinenkugels) if you want to go wtih something cheaper.

      Oh my! Try this recipe it's soooo worth it. These pork chops were amazing. The flavor was different from what I usually make and that's what made them so good. Next time I'll use less sage. (I couldn't find sage leaves so I used ground sage.) I made this with Guinness Cupcake (Recipe #2609550)
