And then you open one of the daintily wrapped presents you've received from your officemate and you're surprised to see it's another (huge!) bottle of that infamous tequila. What do you do?
I'll tell you what to do; you pour in onto your food. I used tequila as an alternative way to marinate these baby back ribs. It's a delightful way to use some of the tequila without feeling guilty -- most importantly, without the hangover!
Tequila Glazed Baby Back Ribs
3/4 c Tequila
1/4 c squeezed lemon
2/3 c white sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1 clove garlic minced
salt and pepper to taste
This is incredibly easy. All you have to do is mix all the ingredients and use it to marinate the ribs. Let it stand for 30 minutes or better yet marinate it overnight.
Cook it on a stove top adding 1 c of soup stock until the ribs are tender. Add more water/stock if it's not tender yet. Let it cook until it's reduced to a sticky sauce. Garnish it with minced garlic and sprinkle a little garlic salt on top.
Voila, you are ready to eat...
or have an appetizer for another tequila night haha!
