I saw this pork chops in beer sauce dish listed among some dinner suggestions in a restaurant somewhere a long time ago. What a mouthwatering idea, I thought back then. But then I wasn’t quite willing to pay €28 (!) for such a simple dish.
I mean, juicy pork chops with salted bacon and dark beer.
These ingredients are not the most expensive, right. So I added this recipe idea to my to do list and thought I would give it a try at home one fine day.
Well it worked out just fine, thank you. This dish turned out to be a great dinner idea. We loved it! And it’s been on our weekly menu for many years now.

Pork Chops In Beer & Bacon
What’s not to love about good old pork with onion, bacon and beer!
I used a Belgian Sint-Bernardus tripel abbey beer.
That was an excellent choice, and it’s also one of my favorite Belgian beers as well. I served it with a nice scoop of mashed potatoes with olives this time. Yum, what a pleasure for our palate! I couldn’t ask for more really.

Easy Pork Chops In Beer & Bacon Recipe
Succulent pork chops in beer sauce with crunchy bacon bits and onion...
- 2 fresh pork chops
- 2,5 oz salted bacon (70 g)
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 tbsp plain flour or cornstarch
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 cup Belgian strong ale (tripel) (240 ml)
- 1 tbsp strong mustard
Slice the bacon into strips. Season the pork chops with a pinch of pepper and salt on both sides.
Place the butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat until foaming. Then add the seasoned pork chops.
Quickly sear the chops for 3 minutes on both sides until brown.
Transfer them onto a clean plate and cover with tinfoil. Put them aside until needed later. Then add the diced bacon to the same pan you browned the pork in. Don't discard those lovely juices!
- Stir fry the bacon for 2 minutes over medium heat. Add the chopped yellow onion.
- Cook for 4 minutes more. Pour in the brown beer and stir well.
Season with a little pepper and salt to taste. Cook the onion and bacon for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the flour or cornstarch and also add the mustard to the beer sauce.
Stir and cook for 1 minute. Then transfer the browned chops you put aside back to the pan.
- Put a lid on the pan and simmer the chops for 4 to 5 minutes until warmed through. The beer sauce should have thickened a bit. Check the seasoning and add extra pepper, salt or mustard if necessary. Put the pork chops onto warm plates and drizzle with the beer sauce. Serve.
