1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

Good recipe but don’t you think, we can use something else than coca cola?

I tried a recipe with a Pork roast in a crockpot, Coke,onion and a can of mushroom soup…it turned out wonderful…nice gravy.

Go me thinking…
Ya’ know, back in the 1950’s or so, car mechanics actually used Coca-Cola for cleaning their tools, and soaking car parts, like carberators. I’ve seen it work.
Maybe there’s a meat tenderizing process occuring here that I’ve not heard of. Makes sense…

wow coca cola? for real? I haven’t tried it one… hmmm interesting…i’ll gonna cook it tomorrow
