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!

So there you have seven meal ideas for this simple and easy Coca-Cola Braised Pork Loin!  This covers feeding a crowd, busy weeknights, and even game day and every single one is a delicious option!

You could also freeze the cooked pork tenderloin and use it in any of these easy meals.

I saw this picture on interest, and I have to comment that it looks so stringy and dry. maybe it tastes better than it looks- but that sucker looks REAL dry.

I’ve never done a pork loin (only a roast) in a slow cooker. I need to try this!

Thank you so much for this recipe!! Because of what I had on hand, I changed a couple things – I used a can of diet Pepsi and a 3# pork loin….and it turned out fantastic!! So tender…we just left it in the crockpot and pulled it apart a little (it nearly fell apart) and served it from there.
The hubzy got home from work late, so it ended up cooking for 1.5 hours on High, and then probably another 5 on Low, and I was really worried it would be dried out – but no! Perfect! =)

Could you use white vinegar instead? We have an apple allergy so I would have to find a substitute for the cider vinegar.

I think you could use white vinegar or maybe a white balsamic vinegar.

How is it that the pork pic shown is brown and “roasted” looking when it’s slow cooked?
