Ingredients

  • 2 LBS Steak, I used Sirloin
  • 2 Cups Cola, I used Coca Cola Regular
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce, I used French's
  • 3 Cloves Chopped Garlic, I used Organic
  • 4 Tablespoons Steak Rub, I used Emeril's
  • 8 Medium Red Potatoes
  • 1 LB Baby Carrots

Instructions Part One.

Prepare The Marinade:

When I made my Steak that you see in the photo, what I did was I found a Seal Tight Tupperware Container to put my meat and my marinade in together to let it marinate and tenderize overnight.

I did turn the meat over once since it was not completely submerged, in order to allow both sides of the steak to have equal exposure in their lovely cola bath.


Marinade Instructions

  1. Put your Raw Steak Into an Air Tight Sealable Tupperware Container or a Large Freezer Size Zip Lock Bag.
  2. Sprinkle Steak Rub Evenly To Coat Both Sides Of Your Steak. (I chose to purchase 2 smaller separate Steaks because not only was I cooking one for my daughter and one for myself, but I also needed to buy meat that would fit in the bottom of my small Steamer. You do not have to buy small separate steaks if you are cooking them on your BBQ grill or on your stovetop.)
  3. Let steak Rub Sit on Meat and Set Aside.
  4. Peel and Slice 3 Cloves of Fresh Garlic.
  5. Pour 2 Cups of Cola into a Measuring Cup.
  6. Slowly Mix 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce into the Cola.
  7. Pour Cola Sauce Mix Over Steak.
  8. Add sliced Garlic to the Marinade.
  9. Cover and set in refrigerator. I let mine sit overnight. I did turn the meat once in order to ensure even coating of the marinade on all sides of the steak.

Step 1: Steak Marinade

I used about 4 Tablespoons of this magical powder on top of the meat for an extra BAM.

My last step before covering and putting into the refrigerator. I add the Garlic Slices to the marinade. I even leave a few on top. I don't know about you but I just love that fresh Garlic Taste in my meat.

My Love Of Garlic.

Chopping Garlic is my favorite thing to chop in the kitchen. Mortars and Pestles are great for making Garlic Paste.

The Next Day.

Put Steak in the Bottom of your Steamer and pour marinade in.

With my particular Steak Dinner, I chose 2 perfect Steak complimenting Vegetables, Red Potatoes and Baby Carrots.

Here is an optional side prep for your Potatoes and Carrots prior to steaming them with your Steak:

  • Slice Red Potatoes in Half or in 4ths
  • Place in saucepan with 2 Tablespoons Butter.
  • Allow butter to melt and potatoes to slightly absorb some of the butter.
  • Toss in Baby Carrots.
  • Cook no longer than 1 minute.
  • Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon Steak Rub onto a plate.
  • Roll Potatoes and Baby Carrots around in the Steak Rub
  • Place Vegetables on top rack in steamer.
  • Cover, press down COOK button on your Steamer and let it do its thing.

No more than 40 minutes went by and my entire Steak Dinner was cooked to Perfection.

      I would never have thought to use coca cola in a marinade. This recipe looks awesome, so I will have to give it a try. Your visuals are great. Thank you so much for sharing. (Voted Up) -Rose

      Thank you Rose the Planner. Yes it's pretty awesome on hams too. Tenderizes thick meats. I'll try with chicken next and let everyone know how that works out. Thank you for visiting and voting. :)

      I have never used a soda marinade for meat, but I'm intrigued now! This summer we have to give that a try for grilled steaks. Thanks for the great recipe.

      I have never heard of a cola marinade before. Looks great though.

      I've never heard of a Coke marinade before! I heard of a study about marinating steak in beer to reduce carcinogens produced during grilling, but Coke? Sounds like a yummy recipe!

      First time I tried a meal marinaded with coca cola was in a small restaurant in Malaysia, I thought it was pretty weird until I tried it and found it delicious. Funny how such an unlikely combination turns out to make such a great dish :) I will be trying your recipe soon. thanks for sharing.

      I have used Sprite before in marinating meat, so I'm sure steak marinated in Coca-Cola would certainly be great too. Will try that. Thanks for sharing! :)

      It's the phosphoric acid in the cola that tenderizes the meat.
