Gluten Free Friday! (GF Root Beer Pork Chops)

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to another Gluten Free Friday recipe post. Today I’m continuing the grilling theme that I started on Wednesday (despite it being 37 degrees this morning here in the Midwest) with a great way to make awesome pork chops. These chops turn out so juicy and flavorful that you’ll never want to make them any other way again. The key of course is to give them plenty of time to marinate. Overnight is always better but a couple hours will still do the trick. As with any gluten free recipe you pick up, make sure the ingredients you’re buying are gluten free. I’m fairly certain you’ll be safe with any of the ingredients in this recipe (and all other GF recipes on the blog) no matter what brands you buy but always check to be certain. As always, feel free to post comments below and don’t forget to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already.

GF Root Beer Pork Chops

  • 4 (1-inch thick) Pork Chops
  • 3 (12 oz) cans Root Beer
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Beef Stock
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Chipotle-Flavored Hot Sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

1. Place the pork chops in a large dish and pour 2 cans of the root beer plus the 1 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce over the chops; cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate AT LEAST 2 hours (marinate overnight for best flavor).
2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the remaining can of root beer, the beef stock, brown sugar, hot sauce, and the 2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce; simmer the mixture until it reduces to about 3/4 cup and then set aside.
3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
4. Remove the pork chops from the root beer marinade and season liberally with salt and pepper.
5. 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).
6. Brush the chops generously with the reduction sauce and continue cooking for about 2 minutes more per side.
7. Remove the chops from the grill and brush with any remaining sauce; season with salt to taste before serving.
