You guys. This recipe. It is so, so good! I want to create this dish at least once a week, because not only is it divine the first day you prepare it, it makes the most amazing leftovers to use in quesadillas, grilled paninis or just to snack on that you will ever eat! You can also shred the meat and mix it with the leftover sauce for pulled pork sandwiches, yay!
The marinade is spectacular. And the Coca~cola sauce…..it is marvelous. Seriously. I believe that you could put this stuff on a shoe and it would make it taste great. You have to try it.
Here’s what you need.
A pork loin of whatever size you choose. You can choose a two pound pork loin or an eight pound pork loin, it won’t matter. It just needs to fit in your marinade container and you’ll have more leftovers, yum!
Put all of your marinade ingredients into a gallon size ziploc bag and mix. To do this, I seal it up and squish it around. Easy peasy, and done.
Place your pork into the baggie and stick into the fridge overnight. You will be so glad you did this, I promise.
The next morning, put your pork loin into the slow cooker and discard your marinade. I know it’s painful to just dump something down the drain, but it has done it’s job. All of the liquid you see in the photo above is from cooking all day on low. You are definitely going to want to eat lunch, because otherwise you are going to starve to death on the day you make this from the incredible smells that will be wafting through your kitchen.
About an hour before you are ready to sit down and eat, make your Coca~Cola sauce. Mix all of the sauce ingredients in a pot over medium and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until thickened. Pour 1/3 of the sauce over the pork and cook for an additional 20 to 30 minutes.
Keep the remainder of the sauce to spoon over everything in sight. It’s so, so good!
