An intriguing marinade and basting sauce for meat begins with Dr. Pepper soda. Great with steaks, beef brisket, chuck roast, and 7-bone roast.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup Dr. Pepper soda (not diet)
  • 1/4 cup dark soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1-1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce

How to Make It

  1. Whisk together Dr. Pepper, soy sauce, lime juice, vegetable oil, and hot sauce.
  2. Place in a heavy-duty freezer zip-top bag. Pour into a bag, squeeze out the air, seal tight, and refrigerate 8 to 12 hours.
  3. Remove meat from reserving marinade. Boil marinade for at least 5 minutes.
  4. Grill or roast meat to desired tenderness, using cooled as a basting sauce.
