Old Man Winter – get the heck out!!!
And what was the inaugural dish this season, you ask? Root Beer Glazed Pork Chops.
As a matter of fact, you might be seeing various new posts referring to the Market on the Square and their wares. I have designs on a recipe involving the “Dreamcatcher”, a fantastic little port-style wine from the Piasa winery. But I digress.
And what happened? See for yourself! Just look at this gorgeous platter.
If you love the Goose Island Root Beer (or any root beer!) give this one a try when you get YOUR grill going this season!
OOOPS! I forgot to include the recipe!
Root Beer Glazed Pork Chops
1 bottle Goose Island Root Beer
1 cup beef broth
1 tsp Sriracha (or more if you like spicy!)
1/3 cup brown sugar
Mix all the ingredients in a sauce pan and cook over medium high heat until reduced by about half, or until the mixture coats the back of a spoon, but no longer.
Season your pork chops with salt and pepper and grill until cooked basting with the root beer sauce until you get a nice glaze.
***NOTES*** I had a hard time keeping my grill hot enough in the cool temps on my deck, so I didn't get a nice char on my chops, but you bet i will next time!
