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)
- 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.
