  • 1 cup cherries pitted, fresh or frozen
  • 1 can porter beer
  • 1 tsp honey to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the butter in a sauce pan. Add onion and garlic and cook over medium heat for 2-4 minutes until softened. 

  2. Add paprika and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

  3. Add in the cherries and cook, while stirring occasionally, until broken down, about 10 minutes.

Recipe Notes

  • If you like a more sweet sauce, add a little more honey.  If you like a tangier sauce, hold back on the honey. 
  • Use any porter style beer.
