Pot-Roast with Coca-Cola recipe questions

Does the caffeine in Coke go away when you cook with it, as in a Pot Roast liquid? Regular Coke and chili sauce make a great base for pot roast liquid, but I was wanting to know about the caffeine...Anyone?

Thanks,
Lea in Washington State, USA

Ask yourself the question, does caffeine in coffee go away when it is heated? The hottest scalding coffee served by McDonalds has the same amount of caffeine as iced coffee. I would assume that soft drinks which include caffeine contain the same amount of caffeine hot or cold.

That is what I am thinking, but I was wondering about the source of caffeine in Coke, and if that made any difference... :)

The caffeine remains, just as it does in coffee. Sorry.

It's super easy....Season and brown a standard pot roast on the stove, then put it in the pot roast pan. Add 1 can Coke, 1 jar Chili sauce--it is over by the Ketchup in the little round jar, or the other chili sauces are by it--don't use the Chili sauce or sweet chili sauce from the oriental/asian section. Add one packet of Onion soup mix, and a cup of water or 2--you want to make a braising liquid, but not drown the roast. Roast covered in the oven at 350 for 2-3 hours, periodically checking the liquid level. This is a fun recipe because the base is so easy, and you can feel free to experiment with adding herbs, using garlic or garlic powder, etc. It also does nice things to the vegetables if you add the carrots, potatoes, and other favorites during the last hour of the cooking!

UPDATE to Recipe...

I posted this question earlier today because I was planning on cooking the dish tonight. I had not made this recipe in a while and misjudged some ingredient amounts...the CORRECT liquid is 1 can coke, 1/2 bottle to 1 bottle heinz or farmans chili sauce (not asian-style), and 1/2 packet of onion soup mix....enjoy!

Are you afraid it will keep your roast awake?

Generally make my red eye gravy with good old regular Coke (no low cal allowed here) instead of coffee and we love it.
