Crock Pot Orange Pork

Posted by on May 7, 2013 in Recipes | 19 comments

Two ingredients added to pork? Really?

Yes! Just add orange soda and soy sauce!

Who could guess that such an odd combination could make such a tasty main dish?

I would never think to put orange soda and soy sauce together! I read a recipe for chicken made this way long ago and placed it in my files. Just recently I came across it and decided I had to give it a try.  I had boneless pork chops thawed so instead of chicken, I decided to try it with pork.


1  – 1/2 lbs. boneless pork

1/2 cup Soy Sauce ( I used lite sodium and gluten-free)

1 can ( 12 oz.) orange soda (I used Fanta because it is caffeine free)

Place all ingredients in a crock pot and let cook on low for 5 hours

The first time I made this, I served the pork chops over rice and thickened the juices with flour for gravy. For gluten-free, use cornstarch to thicken the juices.

Easy way to fix pork or chicken!

The second time I made this orange pork,  I broke apart the meat after cooking for 5 hours, I thickened the juices with flour, and cooked for another 1/2 hr. I like this way the best!  Serve over rice or noodles. It was like a pork stroganoff.

You probably know this, but be sure to put flour in cold water, mix together, and then add to the crock pot. Just adding flour to a hot mixture makes lumps.

Next time you want a simple two ingredient crock pot dish, try Orange Pork or Orange Chicken.  Optional items to include are sautéed mushrooms, onions or frozen peas ( added at the end). With this easy dish, there is very little time spent in preparation! Dinner made easy, right?

    • I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! Let me know!

      • Just a quick follow up – the diet orange soda worked great… kids even liked the roast….but not before giving me a hard time when they found out what I was planning on doing with the diet orange soda (bought one to drink and one to cook with)…they said some not so nice things that day in the grocery store….LOL

        • Funny! Glad they liked the roast!

        • Just another thought….. If you try the brats, don’t bring your kids to the store with you! HA! Some things are best kept a “secret” ingredient! LOL

  13. Orange soda – I’m game! This looks really good. Thanks for sharing at Fluster’s Creative Muster Party!
