I love marinading steak because it really takes a grilled steak to a whole new level.
Totally worth the extra ten minutes in prep time that it takes you!
How do you make Bourbon Steak?
- Combine everything except the steak in a resealable plastic food storage bag. Mix to combine.
- Place steaks in bag, removing as much air as possible and seal.
- Marinade in the refrigerator for 2-8 hours. Flip the bag every few hours if possible.
- Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
- Remove steak from marinade and blot off the excess moisture with paper towel.
- Grill for 4-5 minutes on side one. Turn steaks over and continue to grill 3-5 minutes for medium-rare or to desired doneness.
- Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes so that juices are redistributed throughout the meat.
- To ensure the meat is tender, thinly slice against the grain. Serve and enjoy!
