Prep: 10 minutes plus marinating and standing
Grill: 13 minutes • Serves: 8
2 bottles (12 ounces each) lager beer
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 bone-in center-cut loin pork chops (4 pounds)
1. In medium bowl, stir beer, garlic, brown sugar, oil, salt and pepper until brown sugar is dissolved. Divide pork chops into 2 large zip-top plastic bags; pour 1-1/2 cups beer mixture into each bag. Seal bags and refrigerate 4 hours or up to overnight.
2. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat. Remove pork chops from marinade; discard marinade. Place pork chops on hot grill rack. Cover grill and cook 13 to 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140°, turning once halfway through cooking. Transfer pork chops to large serving platter; let stand 5 minutes. Internal temperature will rise to 145° upon standing.
