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

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.

      IFC had a Three Stooges marathon on Thanksgiving. After we ate, we watched that the rest of the day. I haven't laughed that hard for that long in a long time. Good stuff.

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.
