Tender and juicy steaks with just a hint of sweetness.
Whiskey Grilled Steak
- 2 10 oz. New York Strip Steaks
- 1/4 cup whiskey your choice Jim Beam or Jack Daniels
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. olive oil extra virgin or extra light
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. dijon mustard
- 1 clove garlic minced
- fresh ground pepper
Place the steaks in a resealable freezer bag. Whisk the remaining ingredients together in a medium size mixing bowl until well blended and the sugar is fully dissolved.
Pour the marinade into the bag with the steaks and swish it around, making sure the steaks are well coated. Place the bag in the refrigerator and allow to marinade for at least 4 hours or overnight if possible. Flip the bag over at the halfway point.
Prepare your grill to medium high heat. Remove the steaks from marinade and discard the marinade. Grill the steaks for approximately 7 minutes per side for medium rare or 145°F in the middle. Remove from the heat and let the steaks rest for 5 minutes before serving.
