Onion, Garlic and Bourbon Steak Marinade

READY IN: 24hrs
Recipe by LauraAnne

Amount of each ingredient varies according to your personal taste. This is an extremely lenient steak marinade recipe. Requires some work and time, but in the end is well worth it.

This is a great marinade. I made it to go with Portobello mushrooms to grill and they turned out delish!! Thanks for sharing.
