Grilled Bourbon Skirt Steak

"Here's another found recipe that I haven't tried but sounds great and I want to save. I love a good skirt steak and add the bourbon and spices and how can you go wrong. I'll be making this soon to see if it's as good as it sounds. Would be good with baked beans. Finally made this and LOVED it. I made two small changes - added a teaspoon of liquid smoke to increase that smokey flavor and a teaspoon of fresh, grated garlic as we love it. It was so easy and sooooo good. Try this and I don't think you'll be disappointed."

  1. Easy and amazing. If you like Bourbon Chicken at the mall, think about that sauce on steak and you got it. I made this tonight, reduced the sauce and poured it over steamed broccoli. AMAZING!
  2. Great marinade to use for tougher meats. Our strip steak was so tender and full of flavor. I made as written although scaled the recipe back by 1/2. For us, this was too sweet, but that is a personal preference and easily fixed by cutting back on the brown sugar. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for the "All you can cook buffet special"!!
  3. I've made this twice exactly as written, using cheap whiskey. WOW! It is the best I have ever tried. Really good on skirt or flank. This would probably be good on shoe leather. Thanks for posting.
  4. I found this recipe in the Williams Sonoma catalog and make it all Summer. It is delicious snot too sweet. Great with baked beans.
  5. I wanted to cook two skirt steaks that I found in my freezer so I searched on the 'Zaar. Of the 63 listed this one sounded the best. WOW! I made it exactly as written with one exception...I only had 1/4 cup of soy sauce on hand. I did have to salt mine after it was cooked, so I think that 1/3 cup would be perfect! Four minutes on a side was a great medium rare. Served BBQ sauce on the side along with baked sweet potatoes and corn. Leftovers tomorrow on King's Hawaiian Rolls, yyuuuuummmmmm! Thanks for sharing!!


  1. I needed something quick to make for dinner tonight, and this was quick and fabulous. I used sirloin instead of skirt steak. poked holes in it during marination and cooked it to medium rare. Very wonderful flavor. Would definitely make again. (Made for PAC Spring 2008)
