    Took my recipe on Diet Coke Boiling Bacon to the group last night, went down a treat with several people who had read about it are now going to try!


    Pete’s Diet Coke Boiling Bacon



    Piece of boiling bacon
    2 Ltr bottle of Diet Coke
    Old saucepan


    Cooking with Diet Coke may sound weird but believe me it works.

    The Coke appears to draw out all the salt and other ingredients used in preparing the bacon and giving it a dark rich colour and flavour.

    Don’t worry about the colour of the cooked Coke, it will look horrible but you will be throwing it away.
    Your saucepan will look terrible but it will wash up ok, just don’t use your best pan.



    Weight the bacon joint to work out the cooking time.
    20 mins per 1lb + 20 mins
    Use an old pan if possible as it gets messy
    Put joint into pan and cover in Diet Coke

    Bring to the boil; keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t boil over, very messy!
    Turn down heat and allow to simmer.
    Keep the joint covered with coke.

    The joint is cooked when you can push a skewer through the thickest part of the joint.
    Remove and THROW AWAY the Coke, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRINK THE COKE!

    Add to drain and cool on a sloping drip tray.

    Enjoy!

    You will never cook a bacon joint any other way after tasting this……..

    I done this last week in my slow cooker. It was lovely and just fell apart, certainly couldn't slice it - it was a case of pulling apart with 2 forks - just like you would with Chinese duck.

    I use Diet Coke as a marinade for just about everything, it's a fab wine replacement.
