Down South...Bourbon Street anyone?

Tonight I only used one Allrecipes recipe, and that was for the Southern comfort sweet potatoes the remainder of my meal was my own Brown sugar Bourbon Marinated Ribeye steaks, and then one of my "go to" side item freezer pleasers from Green Giant, and then a couple slices of 5 grain bread.

Okay let's talk about the sweet potatoes.  They were scrumptious!  These are what the marshmallow topped casseroles wanna be when they grow up!  These are very much adult oriented due to the Southern comfort in them, but it's quite safe to give to the kiddo's b/c the alcohol WILL evaporate out (sheesh lay down the paddle huh?).  The truth about this sweet potato casserole, it's more like a dessert so go ahead eat another serving b/c while it tastes like a's not :)

Bourbon Brown Sugar marinade for steak:  This is MY creation - and feel free to snag for personal use but not personal gain...I don't want to read about someone winning a cook off unless they plan on splitting the winnings.  Okay good now that we've got an understanding off we go.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup good quality bourbon
1/2 tsp marjoram
1/4 tsp EACH chipotle chile powder, dalmation sage
1 Tbsp worchestershire sauce
2 Tbsp A-1 Thick & hearty steak sauce
1 tsp granulated garlic

Place marinade in a gallon size ziploc bag, and add your Ribeye steaks, allow to marinate for 8 hours or overnight...and one more thing..when you go to grill it, don't step away - c'mon fire hazard huh Alcohol, fire - yeah you wanna keep an eye on your steak so it doesn't burn!

The remainder of dinner was pretty simple - side of veggies, and sliced 5 grain bread.  Doesn't get any tastier!
