Cola recipe in a pressure cooker?

Has anyone ever made a cola recipe in a pressure cooker, such as Pepsi chicken? In my stove-top recipe, you boil the Pepsi and other ingredients for one minute before you add the chicken. Do you think the carbonation would be boiled out, so something bad wouldn't happen under pressure?

I think it would be safe.

Bob Warden has a recipe for 2 cans of coke with a pork roast in his cookbook. I've made it, but I substituted 1 can root beer & 1 can chicken stock. The carbonated soda did fine in the pressure cooker. The soda wasn't pre-cooked. Just went straight into my electric pressure cooker.

The carbonation will come out anyway once it is boiled, whether it's a P/S or just stove top pan.

The gas will release from the liquid quickly as carbonation is released. The extra gas will just help increase the pressure faster as it releases. But it is not enough extra pressure to make it dangerous.

Thanks for your input! I think I'll go ahead and try my recipe in the pressure cooker.

I've put beer in my pressure cooker, to cook sausage. I was afraid it might blow up when I first did it, but all went well.

I have this cookbook. Do you think diet pop would work or do you think it needs real sugar for the recipe to turn out good?

Thanks.

Mima, I don't know if diet soda would work. I've never tried it.

All my "cola" recipes specifically say not to use diet cola.
