I will be marinading every stake from now on with this Bourbon Marinade. The steak was the juiciest steak I have ever eaten.
I am an A1 steak sauce kind of girl but with this steak there was no sauce needed! The meat had a nice sweet taste with a hint of bourbon. I do not like to drink bourbon straight but add it to recipes and I love it. I found a bourbon Worcestershire sauce down in Kentucky that is awesome. I use the bourbon Worcestershire sauce on my hamburgers while I am grilling them not only do they taste good and are really moist they smell terrific on the grill while they are cooking.
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 shot Makers's Mark Bourbon (2 1/2 tablespoons)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard ( I used Jack Daniels Dijon Mustard)
Mix all ingredients and pour into a gallon bag. Place steaks down in bag and toss bag around to make sure steaks get covered with the marinade. Place bag in refrigerator for 8 hours. Take steaks out of bag and place on grill. Dispose of the bag and marinade. Grill steaks to your liking.
