Morganfield’s Bourbon Bacon Sticky Bones

Morganfield’s latest offering for Sept-Oct 2020 is music to my ears – Bourbon Bacon Ribs!   The chefs have spiked the sweet and tangy classic American barbecue sauce with Jim Beam bourbon to give the signature spice rubbed ribs a richer and more complex flavour. The full slab is topped with hand-chopped bacon bits and two strips of Bourbon Candied Bacon, and served with Potato Salad & Grilled Corn on Cob. It is a feast for two (Sticky Bones S$49.90++ and Baby Back Ribs S$39.90++). And yes, Candied Bacon (S$12.90++) – see glass tumbler full of them perched on the plate above – you can have a half dozen or so strips as a side dish. These are soaked in bourbon for hours, before being caramelised. The concept is marvellous, but you can still taste sugar crystals sprinkled on the bacon. I think it might be better to brush sugar in syrup or liquid form onto them before baking in order to get that molten hardened candy effect. So we gave that feedback – I don’t know if this will be relayed to the chefs for experimentation.  If you’d like to pair even more booze with your ribs, there are a couple of choices that go really well. On the left, you have Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar which is sweet and nutty with an acidity that balances out with the fatty meat of the ribs. On the right, we have North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout which is rich, strong and roasty with a warming finish. The roasty aspect and the tangy sauce on the ribs are perfect for each other.The ribs are truly a gorgeous treat. However, if you feel like staying in or want to cater for a party, Morganfield’s does takeaway and delivery. Check out their four locations, and my other posts on Morganfield’s:https://www.camemberu.com/search?q=morganfield%27sMORGANFIELD’SSuntec City, 3 Temasek Boulevard, Tower 4, #01-645,S 038983 (Next to Promenade MRT)Tel: 6736 1136Opening Hours: Monday – Sunday, 11am – 10pmThe Star Vista, 1 Vista Exchange Green, Unit #02-23,S 138617 (Next to Buona Vista MRT)Tel: 6694 3635Opening Hours: Monday – Sunday, 11am – 10pmVivoCity, 1 Harbourfront Walk, Unit #01-51A,S 098585 (Next to Sentosa Boardwalk Exit)Tel: 6225 0501Opening Hours: Monday – Sunday, 11am – 10pmOrchard Central, 181 Orchard Road,Unit #11-03/04 S238896 (Next to Somerset MRT)Tel: 6634 1828Opening Hours:Monday – Friday, 11am – 3pm, 5pm – 10pmSaturday – Sunday, 11am – 10pmMany thanks to Morganfield’s for the invitation and hospitality

And yes, Candied Bacon (S$12.90++) – see glass tumbler full of them perched on the plate above – you can have a half dozen or so strips as a side dish.

Ale and stout to go with sticky bones

If you’d like to pair even more booze with your ribs, there are a couple of choices that go really well. On the left, you have Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar which is sweet and nutty with an acidity that balances out with the fatty meat of the ribs. On the right, we have North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout which is rich, strong and roasty with a warming finish. The roasty aspect and the tangy sauce on the ribs are perfect for each other.
The ribs are truly a gorgeous treat. However, if you feel like staying in or want to cater for a party, Morganfield’s does takeaway and delivery
