7 Delicious Recipes Using Soda to Try Now ...


Mountain Dew or Coca Cola may seem like odd ingredients for dinner and dessert items, but these recipes using soda are surprisingly delicious! I’m not a soda drinker, but I’ve become a soda EATER in the past several months. My love of recipes using soda began with Root Beer Pulled Pork and has escalated from there. If you want to start with an easy one, the Cola Brownies are purely amazing and only require two cheap ingredients!

1. Root Beer Pulled Pork

Root Beer Pulled Pork

Whenever I suggest some recipes using soda to my friends and family, I always tell the story about the first time I made Root Beer Pulled Pork. I’ve made pulled pork in my slow cooker before, but with this new recipe I opted to make a giant batch of it. I had two sandwiches and stored the rest in two large Pyrex dishes in the fridge. I went out of town for two days and when I returned both of those dishes were completely empty. My husband had eaten ALL of the pulled pork in two days! He said it was the best he’s ever had, and I would have to agree, so give this one a try!


2 LB Pork Tenderloin (or shoulder)

1 12 oz can Root Beer

1 18 oz Bottle BBQ Sauce

Garlic and/or Onion Powder (optional)


Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker

Sprinkle some garlic powder and/or onion powder on top if you’d like.

In a bowl, mix the can of Root Beer and the bottle of BBQ Sauce together.

You can eat it as is or make it into a sandwich, either way it is supper yummy!
