an experiment that turned out actually fairly tasty
i cut up some onion heated some oil and butter in a wok added the onion softened it than added, garlic, ginger powder, paprika, fennel seeds red pepper flakes, cummin, thyme salt and pepper cooked for a minute or 2. then 2-3 shots of balsamic cooked for another minute added smoked sausage and enough pepsi to cover let it reduce and simmer for 20 plus minutes take the sausage out put on plate turn heat to high for about 5 minutes and boil the shit out of the sauce the only thing is i wish i had corn starch or all purpose flour cuz the sauce was really too thin. and the sauce ended up being bit sort of sweet with a kick so like sweet and spicy and it was even better dipping the sausage in mustard, (grainy highly reccomended) the thing is i tasted as a went some of the spices weren't added til after i added the pepsi but i reccomend adding them before nor did a measure anything just enough pepsi to cover is the only thing and 3/4th of a red onion and 2 cloves of garlic. i didn't think it turned out but it did.
I should mention the sausage i had bought it already cooked so i'd probably cook it longer and possibly precook it in the onion spice mixture before adding the pepsi.
Veggie Mexican rice bowl. I used Chef of The Future Southwestern seasonings and salt (https://www.chef-ofthefuture.com/) ... and it came out delicious!! Probably some of the tastiest and highest quality seasoning I've had in a while, the spices taste super fresh.
