Pork Loin with Classic Coke Slow Cooker Recipe

My sister told me about this recipe during the family get together on Christmas day. Pork loin and Classic Coke? How does this combination even come about? My sister assured me that this was delicious.....so I had to give it a try.

She was right. The pork loin was sooooo tender and the gravy it made was great, too. Plus and this is a big plus, it was so easy.

Ingredients

I used the half of the pork loin that I froze last month. Weight? No idea.
1 package onion soup mix
1 C Coca-Cola Classic (all recipes I read said not to use diet)
salt and pepper
Kitchen Bouquet


Salt and pepper meat and place in bottom of crock pot.

Add soup mix and Coke.

Cook on low for 8 hrs or high for 4 hours.

Pour liquid from crock pot into a sauce pan.

Skim fat.

Season with salt and pepper and add a dash of Kitchen Bouquet. Bring to a boil.

Remove a cup of juice and add corn starch or flour to thicken. Return liquid to sauce pan and cook until desired consistency is achieved.

Pull pork apart with a fork. Pour gravy over pork and mash potatoes.

Enjoy.

Sorry, no photos. I was too busy eating to take photos....LOL.

How does this come about - food companies have dietitians slaving away coming up with recipes for their products :-)

I know it's weird. But I think that the reason it does work is because it has acid in the Coke and that works like marinating a piece of beef.

Here in Michigan, no one would ever think of cooking a ham without basting it with Vernors ginger ale. Which is nothing like Canada Dry ginger ale.

Vernors is also touted here in Mi as an upset stomach cure. LOL
