This is a simple weekday meal idea or whenever you just feel lazy. The secret to this recipe is Coca Cola. Yes fizzy soda. You won’t know that it is there and it adds just the right amount of sweetness to your dish. You could probably try this other meats.
I wanted to keep the seasoning simple as this was the first time making this dish and I wasn’t sure how the Coca Cola would affect the taste. I seasoned the Pork Butt Roast with some salt, garlic powder and pepper.
Be generous with the seasoning. You can leave this for a couple hours or put the seasoning on right away. I had a Pork Butt Roast but a shoulder roast would work as well.
Sear the meat on all sides. You really want to get that brown char.
To your instant pot, add 2 cans of Coca Cola.
That’s it. Seal it up and let the meat cook for one hour and about 20-30 minutes for natural release.
When you are done, you will be left with a sweet gravy and nice and tender, not too dry pork.
Allow the meat to rest before cutting.
With the liquid in the instant pot, you can make a quick gravy. Add a little cornstarch to thicken up the liquid.
I added about 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch with cold water.
Add this mixture to your gravy while stirring. The gravy will thicken quickly. Heat to a simmer.
Slice up the roast and serve with your favorite sides and drizzle on some of that sweet gravy. Enjoy.
Coca Cola Pork Roast – Instant Pot
- 3 lb pork butt roast (you can use shoulder as well)
- garlic powder
- 2 222ml of Coca Cola
- 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch
Season your pork roast with some salt, garlic powder and pepper. You can allow the meat to marinade or cook immediately.
Add oil to your instant pot and brown the meat on all sides. If you are using the instant pot, be patient, it does take a little longer.
Pour in two cans of Coca Cola. Seal your instant pot and cook for 60 minutes (20 minutes per pound). Allow the instant pot to natural release (about 20-30 minutes)
Remove the pork from the pot and allow to rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
While the pork is resting, in a small bowl add 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch to some cold water. Whisk in to the hot gravy and heat to a simmer. If the gravy is not thick enough, add some more cornstarch water.
Slice the pork and serve with your favorite sides. Serve with gravy. Enjoy.
