Teriyaki Coke Beef [Marinade]

HUH!!?? I've heard of Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke - Coke with Lime, but Teriyaki Coke!!?? YES! Don't worry, you're not gonna drink the stuff. But, surprisingly, when you mix the two together they make a pretty wonderful marinade for your beef! The original recipe said to use London Broil but Top Sirloin was on sale for half the price of the LB so that's what we went with!

You'll need:

Meat, Coke & Teriyaki sauce (not the thick basting glaze - the thinner stuff. The bottle will say sauce or marinade).

Mix your teriyaki & Coke. Pour it over your meat.

Let it sit for a minute until the bubbles all settle down.

Cover & stick in the fridge overnight, flipping once in the morning. Ideally, this should soak for about 24 hours, so put it in the fridge at dinner time the night before.

Next up I should be posting the picture of the actual cooking of your meat, but Hubby cooked this one for me because I have ZERO grilling skills.... and I never ran out there to get the picture so this will have to do!! LOL

Ta da! The grill. Just get it cooked up to your perfect level of done.

Let it sit for about 10 minutes before you cut into it so the juices can redistribute back into the meat. Never cut your meat immediately off the grill. Always let it rest. Always.

Slice into strips....
(if you ask Hubby, this meat is ruined - way too done, If you ask me it's just right!)

And serve it up!

Happy grilling, Happy summer.

Teriyaki Coke Beef [Marinade]:

1 12-oz can of Coke
1 10-oz bottle of Teriyaki marinade
2 1/2 - 3 pounds of London Broil

Combine Coke & teriyaki sauce. Pour over meat (either in a marinating container or a Ziplock bag) and refrigerate overnight (about 24 hours) turning occasionally.

Grill over medium heat 10-15 minutes, to desired doneness. Let rest 10 minutes before cutting.
