  • 4 6-ounce natural boneless pork loin chops, non-marinated, 3/4-inch thick
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1-2 canned chipotle chiles, finely chopped
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired
  • Deli cole slaw or lettuce leaves, if desired
  • Cooking Directions

    Combine barbecue sauce, beer and chiles in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5-7 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and set aside 1/4 cup for pork chops.

    Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Sprinkle both sides of chops with salt and pepper. Grill chops, uncovered, over direct heat for 3-4 minutes until nicely browned on one side; turn and brush liberally with sauce. Grill 3-4 minutes until second side is browned. Turn and brush with sauce. Grill a few minutes more, brushing with sauce, until the internal temperature reaches 155 degree F. Transfer chops to cutting board. Loosely cover with foil; let rest for 5-10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, reheat remaining sauce and warm tortillas. Thinly slice pork and serve with sauce and warm tortillas. Place pork slices in warm tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Serve with sauce and deli cole slaw or lettuce leaves.

    Top the warm slices of pork with extra sauce and fold inside a tortilla. The pork chops and sauce can be prepared ahead. Slice and reheat pork chops in the barbecue sauce before serving. Serve with deli cole slaw or lettuce leaves on the side or place some over the pork in the tortilla.
