1/2 onion sliced
2 pork loin chops, cut 1-1/4 inches thick
salt & pepper to season
1 East German boyfriend, for recipe contribution and history lesson (optional, any type of companion can be substituted)
Salt and pepper the chops to desired taste. In a shallow baking dish large enough to hold the pork chops in one layer combine the beer, mustard rubbed pork chops and the onions, turning the chops to coat them thoroughly. Let the chops marinate, covered for at least 30 minutes. The longer the marinade the tastier the chops will turn out.
Grill the pork chops on an oiled rack. While the chops are cooking grab your side dishes and drinks. Decide who gets to change the TV setting to video and queue up the movie. Have some extra Bautz’ner on hand, sit back and enjoy a taste of East Germany.
