Looking for a great steak marinade recipe, well here is the all-American answer. Bourbon is the original American whiskey and the flavors from the barrel are great on the grill with food. The original marinade was from the Jim Beam Distillery, I changed it up a bit adding more pepper, red pepper, fresh garlic and ginger. This is a good marinade for steaks, pork chops and chicken. This is not a subtle marinade but has big bold flavors.
¼ cup Bourbon Whiskey (Jim Beam or chef’s choice)
4 garlic cloves smashed and chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger chopped
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ cup Soy Sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup olive oil
Combine all, Makes enough to marinate 4 steaks or chops. Marinate steaks for 8-12 hours, lighter meats 4-6 hours.
