Had a BBQ Bash

*We are not related to Dr Pepper and this isn’t an official Dr Pepper Page, just a personal website about random stuff.

Welcome to this small website, just had some fun with recipes and wanted to document it.

Here is the first Dr Pepper Recipe

Dr Pepper With Beef.

2 lbs beef fillet (preferably cut from the large end of a whole tenderloin, tied with butcher twine every inch)
1 liter Dr. Pepper®
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 lemon (about 3/4 cup)
1 tbsp black peppercorns
1 tbsp coarse salt
3 cloves garlic (crushed)



Place the beef in a deep container for marinating. Add 2 cups Dr. Pepper and the remaining ingredients and mix well. Add more Dr. Pepper to cover. Seal and refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.
Preheat an outdoor grill to medium.Check!


Place the tenderloin on the grill, reserving the marinade, and cover the grill (or heat a grill pan over medium heat, add the tenderloin and cover loosely with foil). Cook, turning occasionally, until the meat registers 130 degrees . on a meat thermometer for medium-rare, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a board to rest for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring the reserved marinade to a boil in a medium saucepan, then lower the heat and simmer until slightly reduced, 5 minutes. Slice the beef and drizzle with the Dr. Pepper sauce.

That’s all it takes!

Dr Pepper Dessert:

Ohh this one is really good, Dr Pepper Cake thanks to Growing Up Gabel.


1 box chocolate cake mix
1 cup Dr. Pepper
Other ingredients as needed per the box directions to make the cake
Cooking spray
1 pint glass canning jars


Make cake batter according to box directions swapping Dr. Pepper for the water.
Spray the inside of pint canning jars with oil. Fill the jars with cake batter just under ½ full. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until done.
Allow cakes to cool completely. Frost as desired.
Close jars with lids for easy portability.

For Supplies: Auction Sites

If you don’t already have them, you can get some good supplies like meat thermometer and some good BBQ sauces at eBay or sites like eBay, here’s a good list of some alternatives.  I found a good deal for a grill at Bonanza (less competition).


Don’t forget to read up on grilling tips like direct and indirect heat, I’ll make another post soon with some of those.  Hope you enjoyed our first installment.
