AKA Dr Pepper Porky & B2Q Baked Beans. "That's all folks", this pig is ready to rock. From coaching to cooking the idea that Simple Gets It Done is the road map to success. For the kids in your life give them a bridge to more sophisticated eats. For the sophisticated in your life build them a bridge to a favorite forgotten to time.
The original top shelf of the bomb shelter buffet. There was a time in the 1960's every self respecting survivalist was stocked to the ceiling with Pork & Beans. I offer no apologies for my modern version of a childhood classic. As for the Dr Pepper it makes for a great tenderizer and flavor profile. The fresh herbs and orange slices only push the product forward.

Before you place the Boneless Pork Sirloin on the diced Yellow Onions is best practice to rinse off the meat. For this recipe I used two individual pieces of pork each 1 3/4 pounds.
Important to place the fresh herbs under the orange slices so they maintain contact with the pork to assist the flavor profile.
Depending on the size of the roasting pan you are using you maybe required to adjust the amount of Dr Pepper. The amount makes no difference in flavoring but is important to cover the pork portion.

For this photo above I'm adding the Star Extra Virgin Olive Oil after the other contents is in the skillet already. I recommend you add the oil first for best results.
This is a quick dish to prepare if you have your Dr Pepper Pork Sirloin cook ahead of time. In this case I cooked the Pork the night before so this dish was boom bing bang done.
This meal included Green Giant Petite Corn on the Cob and Coleslaw to complete the Country effect. Throw in some cornbread or biscuits to give the meal an extra Southern feel. Great meal for four under twenty dollars.
