DIRECTIONS

  • Pork -- In a large baggie or you can use a small bowl or pie plate and add the flour, salt, pepper and thyme and dredge the pork in it to get a light coating of flour. Then in a large heavy saute pan, I like my cast iron, but any heavy pan will work fine. I DO NOT like to use Non Stick for this. Heat up the oil and butter to medium high to high heat and saute the pork on each side until golden brown. Don't forget they are going to continue cooking in the beer so it is not necessary to cook them all the way through.
  • Sauce -- Remove the chops just for a minute while you lightly saute the onions. They only need to be cooked for just a couple of minutes. Then add the beer scraping up the bits from the bottom of the pan. Return the pork chops back to the pan and cover and reduce the heat to simmer and cook approximately 30 minutes. The last 5 minutes remove the cover so the beer can reduce a bit.
  • Finishing -- Add the sour cream, salt, pepper, caraway seeds and parsley and cook another couple of minutes until everything is heated through.
  • Serve -- As I mentioned, I like to serve this over spaetzle, but butter noodles, potato pancakes, even rice or mashed potatoes. Drizzle the sauce and onions over the chops.
