Carne de Puerco con cerveza / Pork loin in beer

I was recently given a can of Guinness and as I'm not a big fan of stout, I thought I would put it to good use in a recipe. Guinness lends itself incredibly well to cooking, and as I discovered, especially when enhanced with chipotle chilles. The resulting recipe worked a treat and was absolutely delicious. Another crowd pleaser that's incredibly simple to make (serves 4).

1lb pork loin
1/4 tsp of salt andd pepper
pinch of sugar
350ml beer
1 crushed clove of garlic
1 onion, quartered
1 chipotle chile

Put the meat in a bowl and season with the salt, pepper and sugar. Pour in the beer and add the garlic, onion and chiptole. Leave to marinade overnight.

Pour the marinade into a baking tray and place the meat onto a rack on top. Roast for an hour at 160c basting occasionally. Shred the meat and keep warm. Boil the marinade until reduced by half and remove any excess fat. Blend until smooth and return to the pan. Simmer until thickened and then return the meat to the sauce. Serve with warm tacos and beans.
