what does the sugar and bourbon do for the meat?
In other recipes with alcohol and meat, the alcohol does a few things. Mostly it tenderizes the meat, and the sugar too. Bourbon is so strong it would most likely tenderize the meat significantly, almost curing it a little bit. This recipe looks totally delectable.
