Crock Pot Coca Cola Pork Chops
Okay, it’s got to raise an eyebrow to see these things all together, right? Crock Pot Coca Cola Pork Chops? What on earth are we making today. Well, as you will see, coca cola is a surprisingly great marinate for meats. It will make pork chops super tender, sweet and juicy with just a touch of that je ne sais quoi (I don’t know what) that makes the drink so singular in flavor and remarkable in taste.
In case you do not know, crockpots are the same thing as slow cookers. There are many varieties to choose from and, for the price, can make a terrific and valuable addition to your kitchen. Almost anything cooks wonderfully well in a slow cooker, and it is nearly impossible to burn anything in them. Your slow cooker or crockpot can just sit on your countertop to ensure that you use it often. Pop in whatever you like from chicken, meat and fish, add a bit of juice and let the whole mess sit for the day, at least six hours. The whole house will fill with the smell of what you’re cooking and what you are cooking will taste unbelievably delicious. The secret, of course, is in the slow cook. Flavors have time to blend and smooth and come together in ways only this process allows. So if you don’t yet have a crock-pot, buy one today, or put it on your holiday gift list must have’s! You will be glad you did.
Did you know that coca cola was originally intended as a medicine when it was developed in the early 20th century? Coca cola became the drink of the century at its height, and remains a popular drink today. It is also somewhat regional in nature, despite all the hoopla around the patented coca cola process and singular taste. The flavor is produced in Georgia, its home for more than 100 years, and distributed as a concentrate around the world. When the concentrate reaches its destination, it is made into the drink, but using local filtered water and sweeteners. This local introduction can cause coca cola to taste a bit differently wherever it is produced. This recipe is easy enough for beginner cooks and tastes good enough that seasoned cooks will want to try them, too.
