Root Beer Teriyaki Marinade

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by kbangen

This is a recipe I created after trying another root beer marinade. I tried this one on pork, chicken and beef but is best with pork. It will not have a strong root beer flavor and is fun to tell people you used root beer as the secret ingredient

I hate to be the first to write a review and knock a recipe but I'm trying to be as honest as possible. My wife and I tried this on pork chops last night. I like root beer, spicy food, and marinaded meat so this sounded like a great recipe to try. The marinade wasn't bad it just wasn't good. I followed the directions to the letter and marinated 3 pork chops for 4 hours in a vacuum marinator. The marinade didn't have a lot of flavor other than heat and I would not use it again.
