Root Beer Glazed Pork Chops with Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Caramelized Onions

Root Beer Glazed Pork Chops with Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Caramelized Onions

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

Directions

  • To make the glaze, combine the root beer and broth in a medium heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced to a thick syrup, about 1/4 cup, about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from the heat.

  • Preheat a grill to medium-high. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Season each chop on both sides with 1 teaspoon of the Essence and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Place on the grill and cook for 3 minutes. Turn each chop 1/4 turn to make grill marks and cook an additional 2 minutes. Turn and cook on the second side for 5 minutes.

  • Transfer to a baking sheet and roast until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reaches 145 degrees F, 12 to 15 minutes.

  • Place the chops on four serving plates and drizzle with the glaze. Spoon the sweet potatoes and caramelized onions onto the plates, and serve.
