Beer-Grilled Chops

"This simple chop recipe is perfect for the grill. It calls for bone-in pork chops, but substitute any type of pork chops you have on hand."

Marinate: 4 to 24 hours Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Serves: 4


4 bone-in pork chops, about 3/4-inch thick

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons ginger root, grated

1 cup beer

Place chops in a self-sealing plastic bag; add remaining ingredients, and seal bag. Gently massage bag to evenly distribute marinade ingredients. Refrigerate 4 to 24 hours. 

Prepare the medium-hot coals in kettle-style grill. Remove chops from marinade, and discard marinade; place chops on grill directly over coals, cover grill, and grill for 8 to 9 minutes, turning once, or until thermometer inserted reads 145°F, followed by a 3-minute rest time.
