Yield:
4 pork chops

Ingredients

  • 4 (1-inch thick) pork chops

  • 3 (12 fluid ounce) cans or bottles root beer

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 cup beef stock

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon chipotle-flavored hot sauce

  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 pinch salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Place the pork chops in a dish; pour 2 cans of the root beer over the chops. Place in refrigerator to marinate at least 2 hours. Remove the pork chops from the root beer; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Combine the remaining can of root beer, the beef stock, brown sugar, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce in a saucepan over medium heat; simmer the mixture until it reduces to about 3/4 cup. Set aside.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Grill the pork chops on the preheated grill until the no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Brush the chops generously with the reduction sauce and continue cooking for about 2 minutes more per side. Remove from grill and brush with any remaining sauce. Season with salt to taste before serving.
