This is very good, easy to prepare and I had all the ingredients on hand... (well, now we don't have any more whiskey) I doubled the recipe for two large flank steaks, put them in the fridge in the morning and ate at 7pm, the flavor had penetrated nicely through the meat. Cooked it on the grill, didn't time it (I never do, I go by feel) My own personal preference, next time, I'm going to add some cider vinegar, only because I look for that little bit of a kick that vinegar can give to a marindade. Thanks for sharing!
