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

      Ancient Magus Bride is simply outstanding. I wish I would have gotten to it sooner. Its like a darker Spirited Away with some XXXholic and Mushi Shi mixed in. From all the promotion Funi did on facebook, it was nothing like what I thought it was going to be. They really need to work on conveying themes better. Its partially why it took me so long to get around too it, because it didn't interest me at first. If you're ever in the mood for a mystical anime, this is the one. The world building is fantastic.

      3 episodes into Stiens:Gate 0, and it's a feels trip. I liked the first one, but I wouldn't consider myself a fan. But this one is just tugging at my feelings with Okabe interacting with Amadeus. On a funny note, its wierd how everyone's tits got huge. Wtf?

      I'm going to preface this by saying I'm normally not a fan of Super Robot mech shows (more of a Real Robot guy myself (Gundam/Macross)) and never really have been (there are exceptions but they are few) so that will tell you just how much I adored this show.
      It took me 11 years to finally sit down and watch it (and it's spent many years on my Netflix to watch list (I watched in on CR though) but I finished Gurren Lagann tonight and I have to say I absolutely fucking adored it. I don't understand why it took me so long to finally watch it but god am I glad I finally did. I haven't been this pumped after watching a show since I finished Kill la Kill (funny considering Trigger is also responsible making that gem). I'll admit it was a little rough in the beginning and if it wasn't for Kamina I would of dropped it but man am I glad I stuck through it, it only kept getting better. I'll admit, my taste for shows like this has dwindled over the years and I'm not really into the over the top, ridiculous shit anymore but god this just scratched an itch I didn't even know I had. Sure, I have my issues with the show (some pretty poor character development in some of the secondary characters, story is a little hard to follow after a certain point, some of the mech based science bugs me, and the whole Spiral Energy thing is ridiculous) but god damn do they seem insignificant when put up against an awesome soundtrack, awesome visuals (a little jenky considering how old it is), and a downright stellar main cast.
      If it wasn't for my absolute love for Zeta Gundam this might have taken the place as my all time favorite mech anime (you all know me well enough to know how high of praise this is). I can't wait to watch the movies this weekend (yea they're recaps but apparently the second movie makes the final fight even more epic then it already was) and I'm sad to think there is no more of this wonderful show to watch (manly tears were shed at this realization).

      Finished Darling in the Franxx today. Its definitely not for everyone. It starts out confused to what it is. A lot of people could give up on it after the first few eps. What's seemingly a corny mecha series with horny teens quickly evolves into an interesting and mysterious world were a group of kids try to find their place on society and struggle to cope with their emotions. Lately, I've been unintentionally watching series with slow build ups that lead to big payoffs and this is one of them. Having to wait each week for a new episode deprived me of the instant gratification or lack there of I'm accustomed to. The series ends without answering a lot of questions and adding a few more about the actual social structure and why the world is the way it is. But the questions about Hiro's issues and his explainable connection to 002 are all resolved. The animators of Gurren Lagann did this series, and it's easy to see that. Instead of a over the top epic tale, we get a darker world with mysterious creatures that probably wont be explained until next season.
