Follow these easy instructions to make Root Beer Pork Chops in a Pan.
Combine the root beer, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, and garlic powder in a medium bowl.
In a large zippered plastic bag, mix the flour with a few shakes of salt and pepper. Place the pork chops in the bag, one at a time. Seal the plastic bag, and shake it to coat each pork chop completely with flour.
Pour the olive oil in a large pan (such as a Dutch oven or deep-sided frying pan) over medium heat. Add the flour-coated pork chops, and brown them completely.
Add the root beer mixture gradually, pouring it into the pan around the pork chops, so as not to rinse off their breading.
Bring the entire contents to a boil, stirring frequently to keep the pork chops moistened, before reducing the heat. Cover the pan, and simmer for 15 minutes until the pork chops are fully cooked with no pinkness remaining.
Lift out the pork chops, one at a time, and place them on a platter. Cover these with aluminum foil to keep them hot for serving.
Turn up the heat again, and boil the sauce till it thickens. Pour the sweet sauce into a small pitcher or a ladled bowl for adding over pork chops.
Serve Root Beer Pork Chops with rice or mashed potatoes for a delicious and hearty feast.
