...My compliments to the chef! We broke down a beef tenderloin into steaks. the only change I really made was to sweat the steaks in a liberal amount of salt, pepper and garlic before transferring to the marinade bath. For the bath, I used the Food Saver marinade attachment...only left it in here for about an hour, and my sweet baby Jesus, it was delicious! JD was what I had on hand, the marinade worked great with beef, given that many of these reflected pork or chicken....just wanted to throw my hat in the ring.....with this.....BEEF...it's what's for dinner!
Oh YUM -- 1/2 cup of whiskey for the recipe -- 1/2 cup for me!!!! I loved this recipe. But I did cut back the whiskey to 1/4 cup per some of the reviews I read. That seemed perfect to me. I can see where any more might have made it a little on the strong side. I used some skirt steaks -- not a great cut of meat, but they were so flavorable. Next time, I'll use some flank steak. This is a great marinade -- and I thank you for sharing it with me.
Used on pork. I think I would have been better off with chicken. Not that this isn't good (it is) but the flavor of the alcohol was a bit much with only 4 hours marinade time. Next time I will use a little less whiskey and brown sugar. But overall this is very good.
OMG! This is the best marinade recipe ever! I love whiskey and to find a recipe that used it was great! I soaked a quartered pork sirloin roast for about 4 hours and made it on the grill...heaven! I had quite a bit of marinade left over so I soaked 4 boneless chicken breasts for over a day and made them on the grill and they rocked too! The combo of the brown sugar and whiskey really compliment each other! My wife doesn't care for whiskey as much. She had one piece of chicken that was a little thinner than the others and the whiskey flavor was a little stronger in that piece (I did taste it for myself just to check.) We loved it and will use this one again and again! Maybe next time we'll do steak. Great recipe Alice!
I tried this as written with b/s chicken breasts on a grill inside and used a pecan whiskey. Although the taste was great, I don't believe I marinated the breasts long enough. Will try again for Memorial Day and smoke the breasts this time maybe even injecting some of the marinade. I am making a few extra breasts in hope of having some left overs for a chicken salad.
I made the marinade exactly as stated. I allowed the pork loin chops marinate for nearly 18 hours. They were very flavorful and juicy. This is a must to make again. Thanks for sharing Alice.
We used Jim Beam as our whiskey, and it was most excellent! No any other condiment need on those pork steaks for sure. I will try this again with other cuts of meat and whiskey choices.
The marinade itself was really good tasting so I figured this was going to be a really good tasting rib eye steak I was making. Sorry I did not enjoy this steak at all. The marinade left the steak tasting funny. I marinaded for 6 hrs and cut back on the whiskey as some reviewers said. I'm sorry but I would not make this again.
I soaked some NY strips in this marinade (I used Jack Daniels) for about 5 hours and then grilled them. We just didn't care for the taste the marinade left. The Jack Daniels flavor was very strong. Thank you for the opportunity to try it though!
WoW! My 2 guys went crazy for this, can't wait to make it again, I used 5 good size pork steaks and grilled them. Turn a cheaper cut of meat into a real treat!
