Got Coke? Will Slow-cook Some Pork

imageI’ve used beer and wine in my cooking before, but who knew I could use soda, as in coke? I can’t tell you exactly what the soda does to the dish but all I know is that the slow-cooked pork in this recipe turned out real tender,  juicy, and a little sweet when done.

Try it sometime. Maybe you can even come up with your own conCoketion!



1 1/2 lb pork loin (boneless), cut into 1-inch pcs.

1 cup, coca-cola

1/4 cup Jajang (fermented soybean sauce)

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tbsp vinegar

4 pcs. green onions, chopped

3 cloves gaelic, peeled and crushed

1 inch ginger, peeled and sliced

2 tbsps Olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste



In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Season pork with salt and pepper to taste. Heat Olive oil in a wok or pan over medium heat.  Brown pork pieces on all sides. Remove from heat and transfer into a slow cooker pot. In the same wok, add in the liquid mixture and let simmer, stirring constantly.  Pour liquid into pot and turn on slow cooker to low.  Cook for 6-8 hours. Serve warm over steamed rice and vegetables.
