Ingredients
  • 4 bone-in pork chops, just over 1-inch thick
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus a drizzle
  • 2 thick slices smoky bacon from deli counter, diced 1/4-inch

  • 1 rounded tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 bottle amber to dark German beer
  • 1/2 cup stock

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Season the chops liberally with salt and pepper. Heat the extra-virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil smokes, add the chops and cook, turning once, until caramelized and the meat is just turning firm, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a platter and cover with foil, reserve.

  • Add a drizzle more oil to the pan, add bacon and brown for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the onions and saute over medium heat with the bacon until soft, 6 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle in flour, stir for 1 minute, then add the beer. Cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes more, then whisk in the stock. Remove from the heat and season with pepper. Pour the gravy over the chops, sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
