Ketchup and Soda Pop Marinade/Glaze on plateI'm always looking for ways to use up my fridge staples in my meals on those days where I don't have time or funds to go shopping. Now I'm thrilled to have come up with one that uses leftover flat soda because we always seem to have some. Try this marinade and glaze with your favourite meats and vegetables. I think you'll like it!



  • 1/2 a large onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup dark soda like Coke or Dr. Pepper
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
