Root Beer Pork Chops

Any search of this site and you will find my undying love for root beer. My Root Beer Pulled Pork is THE most popular recipe on the site!

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
ground pepper
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!

  1. Great idea and well timed! We bought half a hog this year and I’m overwhelmed with pork chops and new ways to prepare them. Plus, I’m super busy this fall and desperate for quick recipes. Can’t wait to try it. Oh, and to check out the root beer pulled pork as well!
