Limelight Steak

Limelight Steak uses simple ingredients for huge flavors!

Dude was home sick from school last week, so he spent his day digging through my closet of books, reading book after book after book!

Eventually he came across a little cookbook I’d bought years ago, but never got around to using: Cooking with Coke!  

I don't know why I never used it - the recipes look amazing (and I can attest to at least 1 being delicious!)  Most of the recipes use common kitchen ingredients for a variety of  recipes ranging from starters to entrees, and even a few desserts!

He ran from the room excitedly with 2 recipes he wanted to try!  I happened to have all of the ingredients on hand, so we pulled some steaks out of the freezer to thaw so he could cook the next day!

His recipe was delicious and easy to make.  Since the recipes are pretty straightforward, I think I'm going to encourage Dude to keep cooking his way through this book!

Here’s Dude:
I found it in a cookbook steak is one of my favorite foods this is my first time cooking with COCA-COLA it was sooooooooooo good I want to cook it again!

Limelight Steak 
Adapted slightly from Cooking with Coke, pg 16

2 ½ lb sirloin steaks (4 steaks)
2 tsp seasoning salt
freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 ½ - 2 cans (18-24 oz) coke

Using a fork, pierce the steaks all over on both sides.  Place the steaks in a glass baking pan (I used a plastic marinating container).

Sprinkle the steaks liberally with seasoning salt and black pepper.  Pour the Worcestershire sauce over the steaks; add the garlic.  Flip the steaks to coat.

Pour the Coke over the steaks until completely covered (it will take 1 ½ - 2 can of coke, depending upon the size of the steaks and the size of the container.)  Cover the container and refrigerate for two hours to marinate.

Discard marinade.  Grill over medium heat to desired doneness.
