RECIPE BACKSTORY
This meal helped me get through a rough night after work. I was exhausted and I had the rest of the weekend to work and be on call. I was ready to get take out but my husband was really craving the pork chops I had in the fridge. It turned out as a great blessing. Cooking the meal made me forget for a little while about work, and just relax and cook and eat a great tasting meal!! I got the idea for this sauce from one of Rachael Ray's talk shows. It was one of the bottom of the jar recipes. I added the shallots and beer to get all of the great pork bits from the pan. I stole some of the beer from the bottle my husband was drinking!! The pork chops were wonderful. I served it with my easy garlic smashed potatoes, and our favorite way to have broccoli which is roasted.
