This recipe makes wonderful barbeque chicken!! I have also used it to cook pork chops and ribs. I do cook it longer to make sure that the pork is completely done though.
We use the "gravy" over mashed potatoes and a Georgia favorite, GRITS!!! Makes the most tender BBQ chicken you have ever had.
I have used Coca Cola, Mountain Dew, Gingerale, and Orange soda. It makes no difference to us. It is the carbonation that makes the chicken so tender.

For cake, combine all but Coke and marshmallows. Blend at low speed and then beat 1 minute on medium speed. Add cola and blend well. By hand, add and stir in marshmallows. Bake in greased 9x13 inch pan at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes. Cool and frost.
For frosting, mix all ingredients together very well. Frost cooled cake.

I love diet vanilla coke zero and when it is on sale I buy it a lot. I have type 2 diabetes and I drink a lot of diet colas, water doesn't do it for have queasy tummy all the time. This week, I didn't have much money. So I told hubby to get the cheapest diet cola, which he did. I buy the good vanilla extract. I smelled it one day and fell in love with it. The good stuff is worth a bit more money but has a better vanilla smell and taste. I took the vanilla and put just a drop or two in a glass and then added the soda. It was good! Even hubby liked it. Now I know the vanilla extract has sugar in it, that is why I just use a drop or two. If you both love vanilla and cola, try it.
This recipe calls for only four ingredients.
Put the meat into the pressure cooker and add the liquid ingredients. They may not cover the meat completely, but in my pressure cooker that does not matter. The liquids should cover at least half way. Pressure cook for 15 minutes. The meat will be ready to fall off the bone. It would be better to let it set for a few minutes before serving.
If you insist on a sauce just add equal parts of corn starch and water to the hot marinade and serve with the meat.
Option For Chicken Lovers: Do the same with chicken thighs, but brown them first. Cut some potatoes into about pieces that fit into the palm of your hand. Cook these with your chicken. Don't forget to add the garlic. Pour on the liquids. Let the liquids come to a gentle boil. Cook for about fifteen minutes in a covered pan.
Why do I know this works? My friends from China and Korea like it very much and they thought I had slaved over the stove all day. I rather did not want to tell them my secret, because I did not want them to think I just did something off the top of my head for my important guests; but then they wanted the recipe and one of the ladies insisted that her husband buy a pressure cooker. It seems she had cooked with one as a child

I couldn't make them fast enough for my kids and their friends! Poke holes into the franks using a regular table fork, 2 to 3 times is fine. Pour ROOM TEMPERATURE Classic Coca-Cola into boiler.

I also heard you can cook a turkey with coke, I wish I knew in detail how that is done?
Coca-Cola brined Pilgrim's Pride turkey with Dunkin Donuts old-fashioned cake doughnut sweet and savory stuffing*
1 1/4 cups salt
1 quart Coca-Cola
2 bay leaves
1 medium onion, peeled and halved
1 10- to 12-pound Pilgrim's Pride Whole Butter Basted Turkey
1. Place salt and Coca-Cola in a large deep pot and whisk until salt crystals dissolve. Whisk in 4 quarts cold water. Pin bay leaves to onion halves with cloves and add them to brine. Let mixture cool to room temperature.
2. Add Pilgrim's Pride turkey, placing a large heavy pot or sealed zip-top bag filled with cold water on top to keep bird submerged in Coca-Cola. Place pot in refrigerator and marinate overnight.
Dunkin Donuts old-fashioned cake doughnut sweet and savory stuffing
6 cups Dunkin Donuts old-fashioned cake doughnuts, chopped
2 cups diced onion
1/2 cup butter
2 cups cranberries
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1/2 tablespoon dried sage
1 cup chicken broth
Cook onion in butter or margarine over low heat until soft. Add doughnuts, cranberries, rosemary and sage, chicken broth, salt and pepper to taste. Mix gently but thoroughly.
Remove Pilgrim's Pride turkey from Coca-Cola brine. Thoroughly rinse turkey under a slow stream of cool water, rubbing gently to release salt and soda residue, both inside and out. Pat skin and both interior cavities dry.
Remove neck and giblets. Begin lightly spooning doughnut stuffing into the neck cavity, then into the body cavity. After the bird has been stuffed, secure the legs to the tail. If the band of skin is not present, tie the legs securely to the tail with string. Twist the wing tips under the back of the turkey so they won't overcook.
Roast turkey, breast side down, in a preheated 325 degree F oven for 2 hours. During this time, baste legs and back twice with Coca-Cola.
