Bacon Chops in Ale Recipe

Bacon Chops in Ale Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

4 thick chunks of lean bacon
300 ml/0.5 pt/1.25 cups light ale or lager

Freshly ground black pepper

1 bay leaf
3 onions, sliced
15 ml/1 tbsp oil
60 ml/4 tbsp black treacle (molasses)

Juice of 0.5 lemon

Method :

Put the chops in a shallow dish with the light ale or lager, pepper, bay leaf and onions. Cover and chill overnight. Using a sieve (strainer), strain off the beer marinade into a saucepan, reserving the onions and bay leaf. Bring to the boil and simmer until reduced by half. Meanwhile, start the chops cooking under a medium grill (broiler). When the marinade is ready, brush the marinade over the chops and grill (broil) for about 15 minutes. Turn the chops, baste with the remaining marinade and continue cooking for about 10 minutes until tender and glazed.


Meanwhile, remove the bay leaf from the onions, heat the oil in a frying pan (skillet) and fry (saute) the onions for a few minutes until soft. Stir in the treacle and lemon juice and continue to cook over a low heat until soft and browned, stirring occasionally. Cover the chops with the onions and serve.
