Beer Brine

I only have a photo of pork chops marinating. The finished product doesn't look all that much different than a typical roasted (grilled, baked, fried...) chop. Of course, plate presentation with a side dish and a little garnish can dress anything up! :)

1 12 oz bottle amber ale
1 Tbls kosher salt
1/8 C brown sugar
½ Tbls black peppercorns
½ Tbls mustard seeds
½ Tbls fennel seeds
1 clove garlic, peeled & crushed

Directions: Combine all ingredients in saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar and salt are fully dissolved. Let cool completely. Place pork or beef in zip lock bag with brine. Chill at least 4-6 hours. Remove meat from brine (discard brine); rinse gently. Cook.
