Auntie Phoebe (sister to owner Howard Warner) is the most creative cook and never uses a recipe as is. She always tweaks and bends it to fit the occasion. So the recipe she gave our us years ago originally called for bourbon but in natural Phoebe fashion, she has decided, and brilliantly so, when on Kauai to switch out rum for bourbon to make it more tropical and south-pacific tasting. And what better rum than Koloa Rum distilled right on Kauai and available at Living Foods.
Auntie Phoebe’s Marinade
- ½ cup Dijon-style mustard
- ¼ cup plus 2 T bourbon, or rum, or tequila, or whatever!
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 cup minced scallions
Mix all of the above in a bowl, pour over meat and marinade for at least 2 hours or overnight in fridge. We have a fabulous butcher section that carries the finest and freshest cuts of meat that work perfect with this marinade!
