Old South Coco-Cola Pork Loin

This oven-roasted pork loin starts by being coated in a sticky, cola-infused blend of pantry staples. As the meat roasts, the marinade ingredients caramelize, forming an incredible lacquered exterior over the juicy, subtly Coca-Cola flavored meat.



1 cup Coca-Cola
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/3 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp dry mustard
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground ginger
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dried thyme
1 3-5 lb pork loin roast
Cola Sauce
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp dry mustard
2/3 cup Coca-Cola
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste


Whisk marinade ingredients together in a baking dish. Add pork loin and refrigerate overnight.
Remove pork from marinade and roast at 325°F for 30-40 minutes per lb until 175°F.
Meanwhile, whisk sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Boil then reduce to a simmer until thickened.
Pour sauce over pork and roast 30 minutes more.
Allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing to serve.
Enjoy your crazy-delicious Coca-Cola caramelized pork loin!
