I made this and used on a pork tenderloin. I let it marinade for two days in my Tupperware marinade container, flipping daily. It had a slightly sweet taste that was very nice. This is not overpowering by any means. My son who puts worcestershire sauce on everything actually poured more of the marinade on his plate and didn't use the worc. sauce! The butter hardened so I am not sure if I did something wrong or not? I think the soda may have been too cold when I began. I served this with au gratin potatoes, green beans and crescent rolls for Sunday after church lunch. Not sure I would die for this marinade but perhaps I would incur a small injury ;-) Read More

Too sweet - I marinated steaks in this they were tender and juicy but just too sweet. It was like eating sugar on my steaks. I also used oil rather than butter so the marinade did not solidify. One reviewer suggest beer instead of soda this may work better but I will not try this again. Read More

This truly is a great marinade!!! Best with a tri-tip and when allowed to marinate overnight. The butter causes the grill to flare up a bit but well worth the effort! I have made it several times and everytime I have recived rave reviews from my guests. Read More

Absolutely delicious. Also while cooking the meat put the marinade in a medium sauce pan bring to a boil add 1 teaspoon of Arrow Root to the marinade and let it boil down a bit and then you can slather it on the meat as it cooks. Read More

I did use bbq sauce as suggested by others and I was dissapointed with the results. The taste was very sweet the lemon lime soda being very dominate. I think regular cola might be little less sweet tasting and blend in beter with the other ingredients. Will keep looking for the ultimate marinade. Read More

This is a great recipe! I used pork chops and marinated them for about an hour and basted them with the sauce while grilling them. Also I used Heinz 57 steak sauce (I was going to use A-1). And I only used 1/2 can of the soda (an off brand of citrus soda). It made enough marinade to marinate enough meat for 2 meals (6 people). We absolutely loved it! Read More
