has anyone ever used rum as a part of a marinade for ribs? I have a couple bottles from the holidays and was going maybe use it. any advice or help would be appreciated


  • I do it all the time.

    Oh wait, you mean as an ingredient in the marinade.

  • bigjim,

    Do a search on Jamaican cooking or west indian and you will find some. I have done it with rum, pinapple juice,olive oil, chilis and jerk spices.

  • We did one a few weeks ago. We found a simple Mojo marinade recipe and added some rum to it. If I can remember right the recipe called for a total of 2 cups of other liquids and we added 1/4 cup of rum to it.
  • DrugCoder,

    I'm sure there are hundreds of recipes throughout the Caribbean. I like rum in seafood cooks too.

    Rum or bourbon are usually interchangeable, eggcept I never heard of a Spring Chicken drinking bourbon and coke. LOL

    Here is a link that has lots of good ideas.

    Marinade, All Purpose, Bourbon

    1/4 cup bourbon
    1/4 cup soy Sauce
    1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 each small onion, chopped fine
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1 dash Worcestershire Sauce

    1 Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mix well and refrigerate. Use this marinade on all types of meat, chicken, fish, vegetables, etc.

    The above is a sauce, not a marinade, and is very sweet, but does dark rum justice. Ignore the bake in the oven part :laugh:

    bigjim, I usualy soak my ribs from the inside out Rum, diet coke and a little lime juice, drink and soak ribs on the inside. It won't change the taste of your rib cook but will make the cook feel good. :)
