READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by IngridH

From Cooking Light, December 08. This marinade is enough for 10 tenderloin steaks, so a great recipe for company! Cooking time does not include marinating time of 2 hours.

I used this marinade for 1 large tenderloin steak. I cut the marinade down by 1/4. This was perfect. I didn't have any problems with flare-ups on the grill. Marinated for 3 hours, and my steak was delicious. I'm not sure if there is enough marinade for 10 steaks, as 1/4 was good for 1 steak. But I tend to cut my steaks thick! Thanks for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the bourbon, brown sugar, Worcestershire, cumin and garlic in a zip top bag.
  2. Add the steaks to the bag, gently massage the marinade into the steaks, making sure that all are covered.
  3. Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours, turning the bag occasionally.
  4. Heat a grill pan (or your BBQ) to medium high. If using a grill pan, coat it with cooking spray so the steaks don't stick.
  5. Cook the steaks on each side for about 4 minutes, or until done to your liking.
  6. Remove from the pan and cover with foil, let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
