Directions

  1. Score steaks on both sides in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife. Punch the fatty areas with the tip of the knife. Sprinkle a thin coating of garlic powder over both sides of the steaks, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Rub to get the seasoning into all of the scores.
  2. Place steaks in a shallow dish, and pour the cola over them. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours, turning steaks over every hour or so. During the last hour, coat the steaks with a thin layer of barbeque sauce.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
  4. Lightly oil the grilling surface. Place steaks on the grill over high heat, and cook until almost burnt on each side, about 4 minutes per side. Reduce the grill's heat to medium-low, or move steaks to a cooler part, and place the bacon strips on top of them. Cover, and slow cook for 10 minutes per side.
  5. Spread a thin layer of barbeque sauce over the steaks during the last few minutes of cooking, and allow it to cook until dry for a glazed effect.

This recipe turned out very well. I used 3/4 inch delmonico rib eye steaks. They were very juicy and tender. I used a sweet brown sugar BBQ sauce. The cooking time worked well for the size of steaks I bought. Great recipe!

As a Kosher Jew this worked fine for me without the bacon of course. Everything on the ingredients can early be found Kosher and the steaks can be cooked well enough to do away with any blood. Makes a dinner fit to share with the Rabbi.

This marinade is amazing. I've always thought I couldn't cook steaks on a grill, but I followed this recipe carefully and my steaks were truly incredible. I was so proud!!! (I left off the bacon...didnt need it.) Thanks for a great recipe!

This was great. We rarely eat steak these days but this was a great way to eat it for sure. Easy as long as you have time to marinate it! We will cook this again for others for sure.

If you find the bacon is not getting done when moving to indirect heat, try cooking the bacon indoors until about half-done. You could also fully cook it indoors and put it on the steak during the glazing.

Good flavor, but my husband complained about the bacon grease dripping onto the coals, creating fire flare-ups.

The flavor was alright, with the times listed, my very nice ribeye was vastly OVER done, and the Bacon was nearly still raw. I wound up having to cook the bacon further once I brought it inside.
