For the perfect dish for a chilly autumn evening, marinate pork chops overnight in a beer-based marinade and serve with apples roasted with garlic and other seasonings.
I like to use a honey wheat beer in the brine, but you can use your favorite brand.
Use this same brine for a whole roasting chicken, and refrigerate for the full 24 hours. Once you start brining, you will want to brine everything!
Try serving roasted apples instead of the same old mashed potatoes—your family and guests will be pleasantly surprised.
