We had a REALLY bourbon-y Fourth of July this year and this recipe was the star of the show! The steaks turned out so good ~ we are really looking forward to having them again. The marinade is on the sweet side but not overly so.
Bourbon Marinated Rib Eyes
1 cup water
2/3 cup bourbon
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
4 rib eye steaks, bone-in or boneless just use your favorite
Put all ingredients except the steaks in a ziplock bag and smoosh is all around until it is mixed. Place the steaks in the bag and smoosh around making sure all the meat gets marinated. Put the bag in the refirgerator and marinate at least 8 hours or overnight.
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Remove the steaks from the bag and throw away the marinade and bag.
Grill the steaks until they reach your desired degree of doneness.
Makes 4 servings.
