Braised Pork wt Coke

Did you ever braise your meat with coke or beer?.Well,I always braised chicken or pork with flat left over beer.Honestly,it's not bad to use beer or coke as on of the ingredients for the sauce.This time I prefer to use leftover flat coke ,don't waste foods,ah?.This sauce taste smooth and have tangy sweetness on top of the other ingredients.This meal is quick and simple to prepared.


3-4 lb pork(half lean and half fat)

1 can coke

1/2 cup sugar

5 tbsp thick soy sauce

2 tbsp salt

5-6 cloves garlic


1:Clean and wash pork,peel garlic.Prepare pressure cooker at high heat.Fry the pork at the fats side first until golden brown.

2:Add in garlic,fry until fragrant,then add salt,think soy sauce and coke .Close the pressure cooker cover and let it cook for 15 minutes or beep.

3:Removed the cooker from heat and slowly release the steam from safety valve.Let the meat cool down 5-10 minutes before cutting into smaller pieces.Serve warm with rice.


I prefers to fry the fats first in order to get better fragrant of this dish.I will removed the fats and just have the lean meat but I know some people don't mind eating the fats.If you don't have pressure cooker,a normal wok or pot will do but it cook longer.

This is like my mom's 'tau ew bak' Carlos is not a fan of pork so I hardly cook this. I am sure your braised pork is really good with rice. Actually I never cook with beer or coke before except wine. I should give it a try with chicken :)

I never cook with Coke before too. But I had it in someone else house. He said Coke is to give a slight sweetness to the meat.
