what does the sugar and bourbon do for the meat?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
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.
