Christmas Ale Pork Chops

Breckenridge Brewery adds a holiday kick to pork chops by adding a Christmas Ale basting sauce. Breck's Christmas Ale, an American Strong Ale, is quite the winter warmer, with flavors of caramel and chocolate.


8 pork loin chops
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 15 oz. tomato sauce
  • 2 cups Breck Brew Christmas Ale
  • 2 Tbsp vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp celery seed
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 dash liquid hot pepper seasoning

  • Directions

    1. To make these festive pork chops, combine all ingredients except pork chops in a 2-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
    2. Sear pork chops on grill, about 4 minutes each side. Baste the chops liberally with sauce and return to grill. Over low heat, cook chops 15-20 minutes or until done, turning every 5 minutes, basting with sauce before each turn.
