Sluttishly Savoury: Cow in Coke

This was inspired by Delia's Beef in Beer, but as I'm pregnant and there's no beer in the house I decided to make a teetotal version. And so Cow in Coke was born.

It might sound a bit funny, but I assure you it's delicious. If you fancy trying more zany soft drink based recipes, why not have a go at Nigella's infamous Ham in Cola , some Sprite cupcakes or Dr Pepper  BBQ Sauce?

Cow in Coke (serves 4)
You'll need:
  • 1tbsp vegetable oil
  • 500g braising steak, chopped into chunks
  • 1 onion, chopped into chunks
  • Some root vegetables - I used 4 carrots, 1 parsnip and 1 turnip, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 1tbsp cornflour
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 star anise
  • 500ml coca cola
  • 500ml beef stock
Make it!
  • Preheat the oven to 150c / Gas
  • Heat the oil in a casserole dish or large ovenproof saucepan and brown the meat well on all sides. Remove the meat to a bowl.
  • Add the onion to the pan and cook until it's softened and going brown round the edges.
  • Add the root vegetables and cook for a couple of minutes to get some nice brown caramelised bits on the edges.
  • Add the meat back to the pan, then stir in the cornflour so it coats everything.
  • Add the bay leaf, star anise, stock and coca cola and bring to the boil.
  • Put the lid on and place the pan in the oven. Cook for 2 hours, until the meat and veg are lovely and tender.
  • Season with plenty of salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve with heaps of buttery mash.

  1. This looks amazing. Putting meat in things that are sweet always works well, you're a genius.
