salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup onions, chopped
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil (although some recipes I saw suggested olive oil, so to each his own)
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 tsp mustard powder
1 cup strong coffee
Mix all ingredients together and store in a glass jar in the fridge. Makes 2 cups. Good for all meats.
Recipe Notes: Well I ended up doing half the chicken this way, the other half I used Johnny's Grub Rub just to keep some peace in the family. Mike had a small taste of it and wasn't impressed and I really have to agree with him. I thought it was okay, but nothing terrific. Definitely no where near as good as the grub rub. The chicken tasted a bit on the sweet side from the brown sugar and there was a faint taste of coffee. Really it just didn't wow me enough to make it again.
What is What's Cooking Wednesday and how can I play?
What's cooking Wednesday was born out of a desire to get out of that what's for dinner rut. Playing is easy, on Wednesday post a recipe that has been tried and tested by you and then pop over here and add your name to the Mr. Linky. When entering your name also add the name of the recipe in brackets and make sure you link to your What's Cooking Wednesday post and not just your blog's front page. And don't forget to link back here, the home of What's Cooking Wednesday.
So for example I would write Shan (Speedy Chicken Stir Fry) in the name section. For the URL section I would post this: http://shanrev.blogspot.com/2007/10/whats-cooking-wednesday-speedy-chicken.html
I'll let you in on a little secret. Much to Kaffy's chagrin, my WCW recipes are almost never made on a Wednesday. So feel free to cook and photograph whenever you have time and join us posting on Wednesday.
