Root Beer Pork Chops
Since I often have root beer around and like to experiment with it, I used it with pork again, this time as a marinade and grilled. They came out perfect, not an overpowering flavor, with the root beer giving a lovely caramelization to the pork chops.
8-10 thin, boneless pork chops
8 ounces root beer
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
I usually like thicker, bone-in chops, but since these were going to be grilled, thin and boneless were def best because they grill up quick.
In a freezer bag put the chops, the root beer, salt, pepper and garlic. That’s it? Yes. That’s it.
Marinate for 6-8 hours in the fridge. (so put it in when you go to work, it’ll be ready to grill when you get home.) As always, place the bag o’ marination in a pan, just in case of leakage.
Take the chops out of the bag – THROW AWAY the marinade – no one needs to get sick around here. Place the chops on a hot grill to cook.
The kids loved these, not only the taste, but mostly because dinner was ready so quickly. The root beer gives a subtle flavor and makes for a fantastic marinade. With just a few ingredients this is an easy go-to dinner I like to make during the week!
