I'm going to give the coke a go next week.

In that case you'd like this http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/5 ... 2691.shtml

but shhh don't think about the amount of sugar in the recipe :wink:


Oh YAY you! I even have some jack left over from Christmas!

I wonder if I could use the sauce to make pulled pork in the slow cooker?


:hohoho: That's what I used with our leftover Jack Daniels! A few years ago we wouldn't have had any leftover booze.
It is very sticky and syrupy, I'd be worried the brown sugar would caramelise and burn, even on a low heat. What about doing the pork plain in the slowcooker and finish in the oven with the sauce like a sticky glaze? Mmmm pulled pork! YUM

That was my worry too! I've ordered a big cut of pork shoulder so I might just do what you've said and use half for the jack daniels pulled pork in case it's not a hit with all the family.

I assume that all the alcohol cooks off so it's ok for kids? I don't normally cook with alcochol :giggle: as like you said there is normally none left!!
