Give your cow a bath in this and tell me what you think. This is killer for big 'ol steaks or tri-tip. The cola, soy and Worcestershire all act as a tenderizers, while the rest adds serious bold flavor.

After marinating you can also use this as a finishing sauce (I'm all about multi-use). Bring a cup or so to a light boil in a sauce pan for five minutes, to kill any nasties and reduce it a little. Brush it on the cow during the last few minutes of cooking. Be careful, the sugar will burn easily. This sauce is also great for grilled portobello mushrooms. You've got a hot grill, so why not?

Oh, I almost forgot. Beer makes a great substitute for the cola. It tames the sweetness and boldness down, and still provides the tenderizing. The smell of beer hitting a grill is a beautiful thing.

1 can cola (leaded, no diet!)
1/4 cup Soy sauce
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
1 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Granulated garlic

Dump the whole mess in a one gallon zip-top bag, seal and shake well.

Add the cow and marinate approximately 1-2 hours per inch of thickness. Try it starting on the low end and add more time as you see fit.



Optional: If you're like me and dig spicy food, try tossing in some Tabasco, or your favorite hot sauce. The amount is between you and your taste buds (or taste "bugs" as my six year-old daughter would say).
