Bourbon Chicken and Sauce Recipe

Bourbon Chicken Main Pic

This Bourbon Chicken recipe is a tasty way to spice up your Chinese home cooking.  It’s an old recipe from the Godfathers of the South, downtown New Orleans, in the French Quarter, right on Bourbon Street.  Some say that’s where this recipe get’s it’s name and others think there’s actually Bourbon in the recipe. Either way, it’s a fun recipe and it will definitely impress your audience, it’s that good!

Barbecue Spare Ribs – P.F. Chang’s Barbecue Sauce

Youtube Barbecue Ribs pf changs style

This Barbecue Spare Ribs recipe is fall off the bone tender and absolutely delicious.  The best part is, you can use any barbecue sauce you want and still get the same results.  So if you’ve already got a favorite recipe you like to whip up or one that is already bottled, you can skip the barbecue sauce preparation altogether.  Just a rack of ribs and a cup of sauce is all you’re going to need to bake these ribs to perfection.

The secret lies in the slow and low method.  This recipe takes a total of 3 hours from beginning to end but it is worth it.  As you can see in my video recipe tutorial, the meat will just melt in your mouth.  And as far as P.F. Chang’s recipe is concerned, the truth is, this recipe is better and I say that for two reasons.  First, Chang’s doesn’t season their ribs; just a barbecue sauce marinade for 24 hours. Second, they cook their ribs in half the time I’m recommending and at a higher temperature, so the ribs aren’t as tender.  That being said, I highly suggest that you use this slow and low method if you want the best results.

Barbecue Spare Ribs Ingredients:

1 rack Spare Ribs
1 cup Barbecue Sauce
1 tbsp Seafood Boil Seasoning (Zatarains, Slap Ya Mama or Old Bay), optional

Double Ground Beef Burger (DGB Burger)

DGB Burger Main Pic

I love Double Ground Beef Burgers. Some people don’t and they’re very particular about how they want their meat. Some people think they know but really don’t.  And because a hamburger is so commonly found on just about every street corner in America these days, everyone’s an expert. So If you know how you like your burger, by all means, have it your way.  But, If you want to try something fun and different then try it this way, because this burger is Plump, juicy and full of flavor.

I didn’t add “Exact” amounts of anything in this recipe.  Hamburgers are pretty self explanatory and I’m sure you know what you like on it and what you don’t so use this as a basic guide only.  I will mention that you should definitely salt and pepper both sides of your meat patties thoroughly and absolutely butter and toast your buns.  But, that’s all I’m going to say as a must do.

And if you’re interested in some sides, try these Onion Rings or Sweet Potato fries I’ve included at the end of this video or click the links here below.
