How To Make Sweet Cola and Spicy Beer Barbecue Combo

Hi guys! Apologies if lately I wasn't able to post new articles. I have been (and still going through) on a crazy rollercoaster ride with leaving my previous job, working on a new job and major adjustments with schedule, and having to write with a messed up body clock is not really my kind of thing. But I'm quite doing better now, and as promised, here is the recipe for that tasty Sweet Cola and Spicy Beer Barbecue Combo. This is the dish I contributed during the recent barbecue party that I had with some friends. But before I share more details about both recipes, let me share with you some tips on how to make them extra yummy and special!


*Toast them spices first before mixing in your marinade: This technique will make your marinade more fragrant, and when that happens, of course it will get all soaked up in your meat. I personally love the smell of toasted rosemary when I use it in making other marinades.



*Soak your barbecue sticks in water to prevent them from burning while you grill them. Grill masters do this technique so you won't get your barbecue with wooden ends that are so burnt you can't hold them no longer.



*For a healthier version: Mix in your meat with a generous amount of different vegetables like onions, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, etc. The synergy of flavors from the ingredients that you choose is definitely going to be as delicious.


*Be creative: Recipes tend to be "owned" by an individual when he or she takes on a different angle to any usual recipe out there. Remember, don't be afraid to take risks. Who knows? Maybe soon you can also make a standard recipe that you can say your own; one that you and your family can enjoy.

So that's that, and here are the things that you will need for Sweet Cola and Spicy Beer Barbecue Combo. Take note, I did both because some of the people at the barbecue party either like sweet or spicy versions, but feel free to do either depending on your preferred taste.

What I did also, is just bought 2 kilos of cut up pork -- barbecue cut, and divided it for both marinades. That time I did a total of 69 sticks of barbecue, but it really depends on how to place them on the sticks, which will of course determine the number of barbecue sticks you can do.

Sweet Cola Barbecue
Marinade:
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can of cola (Coke, Pepsi or our local RC Cola which will probably make as the sweetest version)
1 cup banana ketchup
1/4 cup white vinegar
4 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp allspice, paprika and thyme
juice of half a lemon
1/4 stick melted salted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Optional: Cut up white onions and green/red peppers

Spicy Beer Barbecue
Marinade:
1 tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can of beer (any kind)
1 small onion, minced
4 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
5 tbsps hot sauce
2 tbsps mustard
2 tbsps brown sugar
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Optional: Cut up white onions and green/red peppers

The basic thing for both marinades is to just prepare ingredients separately, and marinade the meat at least 4 hours or better if overnight. Then use the respective marinades to baste the meat and veggies while cooking. It's that simple! :)

My Snow Caps Review: The Effects Of Taking Snow Caps Oral Glutathione Capsules

There was a time where I was actually afraid of taking vitamins and food supplements because I was worried it would just make me feel bloated and fat. That time, I was young, naïve and a bit careless. It was the same case until I reached mid-20s and I started to look after myself even more.   So I decided to take vitamins every now and then to help me get through the daily stress and inevitable circumstances of drinking with friends. But never did I imagine that I will be taking glutathione, simply because I don't have a goal of having white and fair skin. I love my brown color, thank you very much. Little did I know that the effects of Gluthathione are far more impressive from what I know. Naturally, glutathione is produced by the liver and is considered as ont of the most powerful antioxidants which inhibits the production of toxins and free radicals. These toxins are usually caused by stress and other external lifestyle factors such as drinking, smoking and fatigue.

A Traveller's Guide When Eating Tamilok In Palawan

I'm not sure if it's just me, but if you are travelling in Palawan, you would notice that that a lot of the locals would know exactly what to say when it comes to the go-to tourist spots, especially promoting their exotic  Tamilok. I even had this weird imagination that all the people in Palawan were programmed to say all the nicest things for the sake of tourism. But I know too well that this is not true, because Palawan is just a wonderful place and there is nothing major that I had to complain about. But just in case you might be itching for  Tamilok, you should also know that there are certain rules to abide by. And this is just a quick guide when purchasing  Tamilok in Palawan. THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO PALAWAN'S FAMOUS TAMILOK     -Tamilok, thanks to Google, becomes a familiar term when you search for it. One of the locals told me that "it's not a wood, and it's not a worm". I'm not sure if you guys have encountered that same local
