      I have made this recipe twice now, and due to my sidetracked nature, I keep forgetting to review it. The first time I made it, I did it pretty much exactly, except for forgetting to salt the onions, and using too much broth & not enough Guinness in the second addition of liquid. The second time was more of a mess, since I accidentally simmered the pork cube steaks that I used at too high a temperature, and used too much Guinness (trying to make up for last time??). I also skipped all the flour dredging, trying to make it lower carb, and forgot to buy fresh parsley. This recipe is great for hiding such failures in culinary expertise. I also have to remember that it *is* time consuming, since each time I have made it, I ended up eating an hour later than planned. I shall have plenty of time to perfect my technique, though, since hubby insists that I make it often. Thank you!

      Love Guinness. Love pork chops. Love this recipe! The only thing I changed was that I didn't dredge anything in flour. I did thicken the gravy with a little flour at the end. Turned out really great. I served these pork chops with mashed potatoes and green beans. Poured the gravy over everything. Truly delicious!
