5 Stars! I grilled mushrooms alongside, and they are fabulous in this sauce! It's a tad sweet, so I'll reduce the syrup next time (I used molasses) and increase the bourbon a tad. I had a New York Strip, so used that, but I can only imagine how good this would be on a T-Bone or Ribeye! The steak crisps up nicely on the grill, while staying nice and juicy on the inside. Made for Newest Zaar Tag!
