Peel-n-Eat Shrimp Scampi

I wanted to serve something special for Father’s day, besides the Cola marinated tri-tip. What came to mind was shrimp, but how was I going to serve it. I knew that I wanted to grill it. So I thought what would happen if I marinated the shrimp in a sauce like scampi and then grilled it. It was a big hit with the family, I loved it so much that I didn’t what to share, but I was nice and let Richard have some after all it was Father’s Day.


Peel-n-Eat Shrimp Scampi
1 pound of shrimp, deveined and washed
¼ cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Place shrimp into a large glass bowl. Combine remaining ingredients into a small bowl, mixing well; pour over shrimp in glass bowl tossing well to coat; cover and marinade in refrigerator for 2 hours or more.

Thread shrimp on to skewers or place on a grilling tray. Grill over med heat, for 3 to 5 minutes per side or until the shrimp, is opaque.Pin It

Cola Marinated Tri Tip

We liked the pork chops marinated in the cola so much that we decided to try it with tri-tip, and we loved it! I changed the marinade up just a little to make it more suitable for beef; I added black pepper and a grated onion. I once watch Rachel Rae grate an onion on her show, she said it gives the dish more flavor and she was right. Brandy loved the beef so much that she didn’t use A1 on her slices of meat and she always uses A1, she calls it her gravy. I will be making this again soon!


Cola Marinated Tri Tip
1 tri-tip roast, trimmed
1 cup coke
½ cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small onion, grated

Place tri-tip in a gallon size storage bag. In a small bowl combine reaming ingredients, place in the refrigerator for 6 hours are over night, turning ever few hours. Cook on preheated grill for 40-50 minutes or until meat thermometer resisters 150⁰F or until desired doneness, basting with marinated. When done place on cutting board cover meat with foil and allow the meat to sit for 15 minutes before serving.Pin It

Cola Marinated Pork Chops

I was at a friend’s house the other day for a barbeque, we were talking about different marinades and ways of cooking meat, such as beer butt chicken and about a recipe that someone saw on the Food Network in which you marinade your chicken in lemon aid. Someone mention that they have also used cola before. Will today I decided to give it a try, I also added a few more ingredients to give the meat a little more flavor. My family loved it, next time I am going to try it with chicken.
