When making a pot roast or ham, try this little trick: Add a can of cola for an extra punch of flavor. Just fill the baking pan with soda, then cover the meat with aluminum foil and cook as usual.
Soda’s citric acid breaks down protein chains in the meat’s connective tissue (the tough, chewy parts), leaving your roast perfectly tender and juicy. Plus, the sugary liquid at the bottom of the pot bubbles to a thick syrup that blends with the meat juices to create a sumptuous gravy.
