YUMMY! Need I say more? I added mushrooms to this. I browned my pork chops first, then I added butter to the pan and sautéed my mushrooms and onions. Then I added the beer to deglaze the pan; poured that over the chops and baked as directed. Thank you Amber Dawn for this recipe. I think next time I will add a touch of grainy mustard for a little twist.

Couldn't get much easier! Instead of marjoram, I used Penzey's Bavarian Spices, which is a blend of thyme, rosemary and a bunch of other stuff. This tasted good though next time I might up the salt. We cooked 2 1 1/2-inch thick pork chops using a convection oven for just over an hour. Might be best to cook less than the posted time and use a thermometer as your guide. Thanks for sharing!
