Bourbon Street Pork Roast & Bacon Asparagus

Just your average New Orleans guy

I know I’m a little late with a Mardi Gras themed meal, but you can enjoy this marinade all year long.  It reminded me a this guy.  Niki found him on her recent trip to New Orleans.  No, he’s not dressed for Mardi Gras…this is his regular day to day panhandling outfit.  I’m trying to envision him really decked out in his finest for Mardi Gras.

Anyway, Bourbon Street marinade is great on pork and chicken as well as a beef roast.  Last night I used a pork loin with a nice layer of fat that I scored before roasting.

Just toss all of the ingredients into a plastic baggie, shake it up to dissolve the brown sugar & mix the ingredients, then add meat which you can rotate every now & then while marinating (I did this the day before cooking).

Bourbon Street Marinade
1       Cup of water
2/3    Cup of soy sauce
3/4    Cup of bourbon
3       Tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
2      
Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
1/4    
Cup brown sugar

Serve with Bacon Asapargus:
Still a believer that everything tastes better with bacon, I  cut the asparagus into chunks and sautéed in a little butter then sprinkled chopped bacon on top.  I don’t often see my husband reaching for seconds for vegetables, but I think the bacon got him.
