Coca Cola is pretty ubiquitous by now, and no matter where you go, from Morocco to the United States, you'll always find someone throwing down a nice cold Coke. Coke is also, unsurprisingly, one of the most recognizable drinks in the world.
But most of us are only familiar with Coke in one way: as a drink (or lovely ice cream complement). But did you know you can combine Coke with meat for a truly flavorful and distinct bbq? Yeah, it sounds weird, but don't bash it until you try it.
Check out this food video to learn how to make a Coca Cola and brown sugar sauce that can be used to marinated ribs or wings.
1 cup brown sugar
1 can cola
2-4 cloves of garlic minced (or as many as you want)
1/4 cup soya sauce
2-3 lbs. of ribs or wings
In a large casserole combine the brown sugar, cola, onions, garlic and soya sauce.
Place wings or ribs in sauce mixture, bake at 350F for two hours (turning and basting after 1 hour). To thicken sauce, remove meat and in a small bowl or glass, mix 2 heaping teaspoons of cornstarch and add enough water to get a runny paste. Bring sauce to a boil over medium/high heat and gradually add cornstarch water mix stirring constantly.
Bring to a boil and stir until thickened, return meat to pan to coat.
