Tenderizing meat with Coke???

Wayne Keyser | May 31, 2006 01:27 AM

I have seen the suggestion that many Asian restaurants tenderize beef by marinating in Coca-Cola.

I've had some miraculously tender bulgogi and "beef with broccoli", so tender I just can't picture off-the-shelf meat being that way.

True? How long to marinate? Do you do it?
