Description

Cola is a great “natural” meat tenderizer, and combined with soy and Worcestershire it makes an excellent steak marinade.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (12 Oz. Size) Cola (Leaded, No Diet!)
  • ¼ cups Soy Sauce
  • ⅛ cups Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Black Pepper, Ground Fresh
  • 1 teaspoon Granulated Onion
  • ¼ teaspoons Granulated Garlic
  • 1 whole (about 3-lb. Size) Flank Steak (preferably USDA Choice Or Better)

Preparation

Dump all of the ingredients, except the steak, in a one gallon zip-top bag, seal and shake well. Add the steak to the bag, remove the excess air, and seal.

Lay the bag in a lipped pan (to catch any leakage), refrigerate, and marinate 4-6 hours.

Remove the steak from the marinade, pat dry with paper towels, and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

While the steak is resting, prepare your grill for two-zone cooking (direct and indirect) at high heat (about 500ºF).

Grill the steak just to medium-rare (no further than medium—about 4-6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness), then remove it to a platter, tent it loosely with foil and let it rest for five to ten minutes.

Slice across the grain to about 1/4″, serve, and enjoy!

I soak mine in Dr Pepper. I will have to give the other spices a try with it! It is our favorite way to cook flank steak for fajitas!!

This was really good. I added a salt and pepper crust on the outside, and it was amazing!

I think this is the first steak I’ve had that does not require any sauce to go with it. Delicious!

This was so flavorful. Marinated all day and loved the taste. Will definitely make again.

Great recipe, very tender and flavorful. I actually let it marinate for 2 days and it was fabulous!
