Active Time: 20 minutes • Total Time: 30 minutes plus marinating • Serves: 8
2 bottles or cans (12 ounces each) lager beer
4 large garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 cup packed Schnucks light brown sugar
2 tablespoons Schnucks olive oil
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 thick cut pork loin rib chops (about 6 pounds)
1. In medium bowl, stir beer, garlic, brown sugar, oil, pepper and salt until brown sugar dissolves. Divide pork chops between each of 2 large zip-tight plastic bags; pour about 1-1/2 cups marinade into each bag. Seal bags, pressing out excess air. Arrange pork chops flat in their bag on rimmed baking pan. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours ahead to marinate.
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 and cook 13 to 16 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140°F, turning occasionally. Transfer pork chops to large rimmed baking pan; let stand 5 minutes. Internal temperature will rise to 145°F upon standing.
