My Perfect Slow Cooker
I like to use slow cooker once in a while usually winter time. So I can make roast, stew, and casserole… and more and more. I like the fact when I come home from work, the whole kitchen is filled with wonderful smell of the food in the slow cooker. What a joy!

Recently, Zach requested “Pork Coke Roast”, which I have not made for a LONG LONG time. This has a very interesting ingredients…. “Coke (Coca-Cola)” I like Coca-Cola but you can use Pepsi if you like. I think Coca-Cola is less sweet that it is better for this recipe… (just my opinion)

Anyways, I want to introduce this wonderful Slow Cooker recipe “Pork Coke Roast”!!

1. 2.5 – 3.0 pound Pork Roast

2. 20 FL OZ (About 600 ml) Coca-Cola (Coke)
3. 10 FL OZ About (300 ml) Soy Sauce

5. Several Fingerling Potato (You can use any 2 large potato cut 1 inch cube)

6. 2 tsp Salt (I use Sea Salt)
7. 1 ~ 2 Tbs Ginger Powdered
8. 1 ~ 2 Tbs Garlic Powder
9. 4 Boiled Eggs

5. Pour this Coke Soy mixture to the Slow Cooker.

You’ll see the carbonation bubbled up on the surface of the Slow Cooker. This is going to help the meat tenderized.
6. The Slow Cooker is covered with a piece of plastic wrap and into the fridge for over night!
Rested in the fridge for overnite
7. Next morning, set this Pork Soy Coke Veggie mixture to the Slow Cooker High for 6 hours, and add the boiled egg in last 2 hours.

So here is the Onions, Potato, and Boiled Egg look like after 8 hours…

  1. I am actually trying it today ๐Ÿ™‚ We dont have a slow cooker, so I will have to slow cook in a big pot. Little scared about awesome amount of sugar and salt ๐Ÿ˜› All in all, I am excited to try it! Thanks for the exciting recipe.

  2. This looks so delicious. I’m prepping it now for dinner tomorrow. Please tell me, what else do we see in your arranged serving bowl?

  3. Thank you Marie!
    I put some Japanese steamed rice on the bottom and shredded pork coke roast, boiled egg, and some scallions as garnish ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh and make sure you drizzle some of pork coke roast juice on top of this bowl ๐Ÿ™‚
