HOW TO COOK COCA-COLA PORKCHOP
Aside from just frying our pork chops, we are gonna add some magic by adding an extraordinary sauce to it. We prepare the sauce first so we can add directly to the pork chops once it’s done. Prepare the sauce by mixing the cola, brown sugar and ketchup. Yes—we are using a soft drink! Set the sauce aside. Fry the pork chops just the way you usually fry it. Just remember to rub it with salt and pepper to release its natural pork flavor. Also, poke the meat so that oil can enter the insides and cook it. Do this especially when you are using thick cuts of pork.
After frying all the pork chops, bring back everything into the pan and add the sauce that we made. Make sure to coat every meat with the sauce. Aside from the caramel flavor from the cola that sips into the pork chops, the high acidity of the cola makes it a great meat tenderizer. Not only you will have tasty meat, but you will also have tender meat! That’s two birds in one shot!
You’ll know that the sauce had sipped in when it has been reduced so much that the thick sauce now coats the meat. This dish serves great with a bowl of hot steaming rice. Serve this to your family and they will be amazed for sure!
