Coca-Cola Braised Pork Loin for a simple and flavorful meal made easily in the slow cooker. Plus ideas on feeding a crowd along with a week’s worth of meal ideas based off of this simple slow cooker pork roast.
Pork roast is so versatile and one of my favorite meals to feed a crowd. Keeping a pork loin moist can sometimes be tricky but letting it braise slowly in the crockpot creates a tender, delicious and moist roast.
There are so many possibilities with this pork loin roast and here are a few of my favorites:
You can feed a crowd or have several dinner options for the week with these meals. My roast was about 5 1/2 pounds and we made three meals of it.
- Pulled Pork Barbecue Sandwiches. Toss pork with barbecue sauce and serve with cole slaw on your favorite buns.
- Pulled Pork Burrito Bowls: Season pork with Tex-Mex Seasoning and serve over Black Beans & Rice with your favorite Salsa, avocado, and shredded cheese.
- Pulled Pork Burritos: Season with Tex-Mex Seasoning and mix with black beans and serve with flour tortillas and your favorite toppings.
- Pulled Pork Nachos: Season with Tex-Mex Seasoning or barbecue sauce and serve over tortilla chips with nacho cheese sauce and salsa.
- Slice the pork and serve with twice baked potatoes and homemade dinner rolls.
- Hawaiian Pulled Pork: Mix with pineapple chunks and roasted red peppers and serve over rice or quinoa.
- Barbecue Pulled Pork Pizza: Toss with your favorite barbecue sauce and layer over homemade or store bought pizza crust, sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Bake and enjoy!
