It used to be hard to imagine marinating meat of any type in a marinade that had Coca cola in it. However, once you try this method, you can never go back to the plain and ordinary method again.

The Pork Loin comes out moist, and tender with just a hint of the Coca Cola flavor. The sauce that the Pork Loin slowly cooks in also contains soda.

Does Coca-Cola actually flavor the meat?

Yes, there will be a slight flavor of the Cola that gets into the meat as it marinates and as it cooks. This creates a delicious, caramelized layer on the top of the Pork Loin.

Are there any variations that I could use?

You could use a sugar-free Coca-Cola, or if you are game, try one of the flavored Coca-Cola. You could also use a Pork Roast instead of a Pork Loin.
