Do you use Coca Cola as a Marinade?

zackly | Jul 21, 201807:49 AM

I caught the tail end of a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives episode last night. Guy was in the kitchen with an Asian chef who was using Coca Cola as a marinade, I think for beef. I'm intrigued. I’ve used sugar and baking soda to tenderize meat for stir-fry’s but never Cola. I’ve grown up hearing “Coke will take the rust off bolts”. Does Coke flavor and tenderize? What type of meat do you use it on? Is it mixed with other ingredients? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!
