"These are great for outdoor grilling. Simple and very tasty. The glaze at the end gives them a lot of concentrated flavor."

  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.

After talking to Ken about my experience with this recipe, I decided on reviewing it two ways. First of all, as written, while still producing a tender finished dish, I give it a 4, for the fact...

WOW, that was unexpectedly soooo good. My husband doesn't really love porkchops but he said he would have liked a big pile of them. I told him there was a secret ingredient (RB) and he forbid ...

I really wanted to love this recipe. I love root beer and I'm always looking for new ways to do pork chops. I followed the recipe exactly - marinating in the root beer and then using fresh roo...

A keeper! My husband and I made this for my mother visiting from out of state. I did use a tsp of the chipotle tabasco sauce and I still felt it could have used a little more kick but my Mom t...

I'd printed this recipe off and gave it to my dad for him to make sometime (I'm not big on grilling, myself) and he finally got around to it tonight. It was a winner! We all ate it and enjoyed i...

Made as written with Ken's changes (see Feb. 20/10 review), My only regret was I didn't marinate the chops longer. The reduction is delicious. A new twist for grilled pork chops. Next time I p...
