Here is a bourbon marinade thats good for just about anything. It works great on pork baby back ribs.

  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 small onion, chopped fine
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • A splash of Worcestershire Sauce

Again, measurements are only suggested as a guide to go by. Even this one is a modified version of one I found. I always up the dosage of alcohol. You always have to take into account how much meat you are going to use, and the thickness of the slab.

I suggest Maker's Mark for the bourbon. Jack Daniels and Jim Beam will do good, however do not use Southern Comfort, its a unique whiskey pretty much made for drinking only. Do not use garbage such as Canadian Mist.

I always recommend 6+ hours of soak time, If you do this, you will never go back to the 1-4 hour method. It really does make a difference. Serious marination takes time and patience. Enjoy.

What if I used Canadian LTD, would that turn out good?

j/k lmao. X'D

I'll use Maker's Mark for this one. ;) But I wonder if a whiskey like Crown Royal would have a strong enough kick to it for a decent marinade in this recipe. It doesn't burn like Maker's Mark, but the flavor is still there.

btw, I have all the ingredients for this marinade in my house already. O_O I think I'll defrost a steak overnight tonight and try this out for dinner tomorrow. :D

It really doesn't burn like you're drinking it, you just get that sweet oak taste of makers in your meat. X'D I wish it did though, that would be awesome!

Yeah, its a new style/css feature for more customization. Everyone's posts are a different color from everyone else's in their own blog. You have to change the color in the Blog Control Panel under customize blog style. I think its the last one on the list.

I have no idea why they set it to default as pink. -_- I changed mine to green until I eventually get around to doing a full customization job.

I used low sodium soy sauce and it turns out I didn't have dijon mustard so I used spicy brown instead. Wow that marinade has a strong smell. X'D And thats a crapload of whiskey. Good thing I buy maker's mark in 1.75 liter bottles. It only slightly dented my whiskey supply. :wino:

I took pictures too, I'll let this sit in the marinade for 6 hours and cook it for dinner tonight. I'll try to post the pics later in my blog. :P

X'D I hope the brown mustard works out ok. I like this one for ribs better than steak, because I don't really prefer my steak to be sweet. Tell me how it turns out. :P

      RIP Jerry Lewis. I remember watching Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movies when I was young. He made me laugh as a child.

      I'm almost done with GARO: Crimson Moon. I'm pretty disappointed with it. Its no where near as good as GARO: The Animation was. The story is pretty meh, and they reduced the golden night to some sailor moon type format where he only gets to transform at the end of the episode and wins in 2-3 moves. It reminds me how Blood-C is inferior to Blood+ as they both take place in similarly unconnected time frames.

      I just finished Drifters on Funimation. Its from the same people that made Hellsing. This was a better product IMO. I honestly don't get all the love for Hellsing as its ending is shit, and a lot of stuff is never resolved. The premise of Drifters is that legendary historical warriors/fighters/tacticians passed on to a different realm when they died and end up on the good or evil side of a new war. You have people like Rasputin, Anastasia, Joan of Arc, Sundance Kid, Butch Cassidy, and a lot of Japanese legends... most notably Oda Nobunaga. Whats strikingly controversial is that Jesus is pretty much an evil overlord, even though they cover his face and call him the "Black King" the fact that he has holes in his hands, and can heal, and produce food out of nothing makes me laugh when I looked it up and the wiki says "His identity is still a mystery". You can just listen to the stuff he says and know who it is. Anyways, the action is great, the gore is on the same level of Hellsing, and the story is really good. Season 2 should be coming out in the future.

      I got an interesting email from Amazon about something called the Carnivore Club. It looks pretty neat, but damn It's too expensive for my comfort. I'll probably sign up for 1 month and cancel just to get a box. I've never been apart of any subscription box service before because I don't need random junk every month that I might or might not like. But I can eat this stuff, that all looks really delicious. If I could afford $55 a month for some snack meats, I'd do it. What caused me to post about this was the fact that it has two 1 star reviews written by angry vegans posting about how sick and disgusting it was, and how they are promoting cancer and cardiovascular disease.
      I remember back in the day I always looked forward to Christmas because we use to get those boxes with all the cured meats and smoked cheeses in them. They're pretty hard to find now, at least in the quality that they were back then. Now you just get some basic summer sausage and Kraft tier cheese. The Carnivore Club reminds me of the old fancy ones minus the cheese.... hmmm I wonder if there is a cheese club?

      I ended up spending my entire weekend cleaning my basement. Theres a good chance I might be moving to a different house in a month or so and I wanted to make sure the move would go smooth. Its amazing how much junk accumulates in a basement. I was planning on playing some gw2 this weekend.. and it never happened.
