Steak in Cola...

Postby Kai Burton » Aug 25th, '15, 16:07



I've been wanting to try this in my slow cooker for a while but I don't know anyone who's tried it. Anyone on here know what it's like and if it's worth doing?

Probably along the same lines as pork in cider - give it a go and let us know how it turned out.

I did Pork shoulder for in Cola for pulled pork, Not sure it is the best use of steak however.

The acid in Cola will do a great job of tenderising the meat but you'd have to be careful that it doesn't overdo it and turn the meat to a pulp. Perhaps using a cheaper and tougher cut of steak would be worth trying?

Red wine is probably a better cooking liquid!

Have you considered the "beer can chicken"? Shove half a can of beer (still in the can) into a chicken, stand it on the can while it cooks. Said to add a ton of moisture to the meat...

On the topic of unusual cooking, I once had a book which detailed how to cook food by wrapping it in foil and then strapping it to the engine of a car. The theory was that if you chose the appropriate foods and length of journey, by the time you arrived the food would be cooked. Steak was one of the meats which could be cooked that way. I also believe there's a book out on how to cook food in the dishwasher whilst dishes etc are being cleaned.

It can make an OKish marinade but it's not anything to write home about, I'd much rather a good red wine sauce any day.
