I bought a couple of "el cheapo" steaks a couple of days ago. They had little marbling, and I knew they were going to be tough if I didn't "help them out." I marinated them overnight in Coca-Cola and Italian dressing, and they turned out great - tender and tasty!
Is that real or are you joking... I am truly perplexed.. Coca - cola marinade?
I've heard about coca-cola marinade before... sounds very nice.
Thanks Habee! I want to try this. Can you tell me if the soda was reg, diet, caffeine, etc(not sure if it makes a difference)? And was the italian dressing in a bottle? Also, did you put roughly equals parts of the dressing and soda or just a splash of one or the other? Don't want to steal your secrets but I'm still a noobie when it comes to the kitchen and love trying cool tips.
No secret! I used regular Coke and bottled Italian dressing. I pierced the steaks first and rubbed some meat tenderizer in them. I used more Coke than dressing - I'd guess it was about 4 to 1.
I like to use red wine for my beef marinade base, but I didn't have any and didn't want to make another trip to the store. I've used Coke with cured ham before, so I hoped it would work for beef, as well, and it did.
That sounds like a great combination--I'll have to try it, since I'd never thought about using Italian dressing...
I've used Coke for marinades before, though--my favorite is Coke and brown sugar for ham, yum!
I also have a terrific recipe using Coke in meatballs--that's a favorite in our house!
