Pulled Pork

My favorite thing is to put the pork loin in a crockpot with a bottle of your favorite diet soda. I season with what I use for chili - chili powder, cumin, paprika, etc. My husband loves it with Diet Root Beer but I like it with diet ginger ale. Cook it on low for 6 hours and shred it. I don’t drown it in BBQ sauce but will put it in a spinach wrap with tomatoes, onions and more spinach. This also freezes well.

    How much of the soda do you think the pork absorbs?

    I make this often, and using diet pop doesn’t add any calories. Diet Dr Pepper is good too.

    I like to cook with full fat cola mixed with soy with the lid off so that the liquid evorates. As it cooks down the sugar caramelizes into a sticky sauce, so there is no need to add BBQ sauce for sweetness. Coca cola braised wings is a staple among students in China.

    As kids we brought a can of full fat coke for marinating BBQ ribs. An easy to transport cooking ingredient for camping trips. The acidity in sodas also tenderizes the meat.

    5lbs or so pork shoulder bone in skin on.
    Scar the skin and rub a rub of choice all over.
    Cover with plastic and let sit in the fridge over night.
    Get up early in the morning and fire up your smoker.
    Smoke at 225F for around 12 hours until the temps read 160F.
    Wrap in aluminum foil, towels and place in a cooler for another 3 hours.
    This is the most amazing and proper pulled pork you will ever try.
    Weekend plans ;)
