Rootbeer Braised Porkchops
Pop and pork are both bad for you…so you probably shouldn’t eat this…but it IS delicious, so if you decide to make it, I won’t tell!
We used a high quality root beer (yes such a thing does exist) made with organic cane sugar, NOT high fructose corn syrup (glucose-fructose)
Fresh out of the oven! Sticky and sweet!
5-6 pork chops
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp brown sugar (like demerara)
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp dried thyme
pinch ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1 bottle good quality old fashioned root beer (12 oz. 355 ml)
preheat oven to 225 F
Place pork chops in a single lager in a baking dish.
Mix all other ingredients together in a bowl and pour over chops.
Bake, covered for 90 minutes.
Optional: After chops are done, you can remove the liquid to a saucepan. mix 1 tbsp of cornstarch with 3 tbsp of cold liquid (water, root beer, etc.) and blend with the porkchop liquid. Heat over medium, stirring, until thickened. Makes for a delicious sauce.
Sweet, salty and great served with a Caprese Salad
