Servings: 4

4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick
1 can (12 ounces) beer
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon hot habanero pepper sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bay leaf

Cooking Directions
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 minutes. 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 hours. Drain chops, discarding marinade. Place chops on a kettle-style grill directly over medium-hot coals, lower grill hood and grill chops for 4-6 minutes. Turn chops and grill for 4-6 minutes more or until chops are just done.
