+ 4 boneless pork chops, 1-in. thick
+ 1 can (12 oz.) beer
+ 3 Tbsp. honey
+ 1 Tbsp. hot habanero pepper sauce
+ 1 clove garlic, minced
+ 1 bay leaf
What to do:
1. For marinade, in a small saucepan combine beer, honey, pepper sauce, garlic and bay leaf. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15 min. Remove and discard bay leaf. Place chops in a 1 gallon self-sealing plastic bag; pour marinade over chops, seal bag and refrigerate for 2 hr.
2. Drain chops, discarding marinade. Place chops on a kettle-style grill directly over medium-hot coals, lower grill hood and grill chops for 4-5 min. Turn chops and grill for 4-5 min. more or until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145°F, followed by a 3-min. rest time.
