Terrific and Easy!
Great and easy. Minor substitutions: Smucker's Orhcard's Finest Michigan Red Tart Cherry Preserves (could not find fruit-only cherry at my store); and black pepper instead of white. Beer was Leinenkugle's Classic Amber. I was concerned I might end up with a weak tasting sauce and might have to reduce it to intensify flavor. The sauce is thin, not a thick gravy, but very flavorful so did not need reduction (although I might try it sometime just to see). Served over basmati rice. Perfect!
