Recipe & Image Courtesy of Ingrid Hoffmann via Coke With Meals Website
1 cup warm water
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. salt
1 2.5 to 3 lb. pork loin
1/4 cup ground coffee beans
3 tbsp. dark brown sugar
2 tbsp. whole peppercorns
3 whole star anise
1 1/2-inch piece cinnamon stick, broken into small pieces
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups Coca-Cola®
2 tbsp. lime juice (from about 1 lime)
To make the pork, combine the warm water with the vinegar, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl, whisking until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Transfer to a large re-sealable gallon-sized plastic bag. Add 1 cup of cold water and the pork loin, seal, and refrigerate overnight.
Pulse the coffee, brown sugar, peppercorns, star anise and cinnamon stick in a coffee or spice grinder until they are a fine powder. Remove the pork loin from the brine and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the pork with the spice mix, transfer the pork to a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, and set it aside at room temperature.
Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a large skillet, melt the butter with the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork loin and brown for 5 minutes, turning to brown all sides. Return the pork to the baking sheet and roast until its temperature reads 160°F on a digital thermometer, about 1 hour. Remove the roast from the oven, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
While the pork roasts, make the sauce. Place the pineapple juice and the cornstarch in a medium saucepan and whisk together. Turn the heat on to medium-high and add the brown sugar, cola and lime juice, whisking until the sugar has dissolved. Bring back to a simmer over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally, until the sauce is thick like heavy cream. Slice the pork loin and serve with the sauce on the side.
