I know what you are thinking. Pork chops with Coca Cola? That would surely not taste good! But this is not a recipe for pork chops that can be eaten with a tall glass of Coca Cola soft drink.
This is a recipe for pork chops that are cooked after they are slathered in a liquid concoction of ketchup and Coca Cola that may not sound appetizing at first but is absolutely assured to blow your taste buds away. It still may seem a bit foreign to cook pork chops with Coca Cola on them, but there are innumerable reasons as to why it will quickly become a favorite of your family’s.
Coca Cola Pork Chops
The pork chops are not necessarily infused or filled with some amount of Coca Cola, instead, the cooking procedure actually includes the soda naturally, merging it with the pork chops in a completely sensible manner.
First, you begin cooking the pork chops as you would cook any normal type of pork chops, without even concerning yourself with the Coca Cola yet. Placing the pork chops in a baking pan, that is when you begin the seasoning process. Separately, the Coca Cola comes into play as a mixing bowl is used to combine the sugary flavors of the cola with the sweet taste of the ketchup before the mix is eventually drizzled across the pork chops. (Keep in mind that only one cup of Coca Cola is used for this recipe.)
But there is not any more soda included beyond that initial coating that combined the drink with the ketchup. Once the mix of tomato-based condiment and soft drink are on the pork chop, brown sugar is glazed on top of it to add that extra level of sweetness to the dish.
Once all of the ingredients have been combined and placed together into one dish, the pork chops are then placed, uncovered, into the oven for roughly an hour. Once the hour is up, the meal will be ready and you will get ready to believe that the taste of the Coca Cola pork chops is truly as scrumptious as you have been led to believe. It’ll knock your socks off!
Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops
Of course, you cannot have a meal of pork chops that are coated solely in Coca Cola. As delicious as we have proven that it can be, there are so many more options than just that to flesh out the entire meal. Pork chops that have been cooked with a base of the most popular soda brand in the world will definitely taste great, but when you want to take a meal to the stratosphere of out of this world taste, then there are plenty of other ingredients included in this recipe that will fit the bill for such a desired taste-oriented outcome.
For one, salt and pepper are added to the creation of the pork chops to ensure that the taste of the meat comes out as naturally as possible for the dish. Ketchup is also included in the recipe because it is just one of those condiments that is a natural partner of the meat included in the meal. The particular ingredient, beyond the seasonings and condiments, however, that is unique and special to this pork chop meal is the brown sugar glaze that tops off the entire piece of meat. Coca Cola will make it taste sweet, to be sure, but the sweetness of the pork chops is brought out even more by just a dash of brown sugar on top.
Do not be afraid to dabble with the various contrast of flavors because brown sugar is excellent and pork chops are scrumptious, but when you combine them, it tastes like no other meal you have ever had.
