    Loved this recipe. I just swapped the beer for dry cider. Delicious!  -  14 Mar 2015


    Delicious. I also halved the amounts & used dry cider instead of beer, I didn't thicken the gravy but was just a bit economical with my half amount of cider.  -  13 Sep 2014


    I pretty much kept to the basic recipe, except used all the quantities for two. Then thickened the liquid with semolina, which is my new favourite ingredient. You can sprinkle on at the end of cooking to thicken the sauce - it's instant and not lumpy. This was just a bit different for pork chops. Think cider would work as well and be more conventional.  -  11 Jul 2014
