Grilled Bourbon Skirt Steak

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

Here's another found recipe that I haven't tried but sounds great and I want to save. I love a good skirt steak and add the bourbon and spices and how can you go wrong. I'll be making this soon to see if it's as good as it sounds. Would be good with baked beans. Finally made this and LOVED it. I made two small changes - added a teaspoon of liquid smoke to increase that smokey flavor and a teaspoon of fresh, grated garlic as we love it. It was so easy and sooooo good. Try this and I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Easy and amazing. If you like Bourbon Chicken at the mall, think about that sauce on steak and you got it. I made this tonight, reduced the sauce and poured it over steamed broccoli. AMAZING!

Great marinade to use for tougher meats. Our strip steak was so tender and full of flavor. I made as written although scaled the recipe back by 1/2. For us, this was too sweet, but that is a personal preference and easily fixed by cutting back on the brown sugar. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for the "All you can cook buffet special"!!

I've made this twice exactly as written, using cheap whiskey. WOW! It is the best I have ever tried. Really good on skirt or flank. This would probably be good on shoe leather. Thanks for posting.
