Flank steak is one of our favorite meats to grill. This one is marinated in bourbon. It was a huge success and we will be adding this to our repertoire. The other wonderful marinade is my brother-in-law, Russell’s Flank Steak, which is also a big crowd pleaser.
Bourbon Flank Steak
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbs soy sauce
1/2 cup bourbon
3 Tbs packed brown sugar
2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 (2-lb) flank steak
Add to marinade while steak is on the grill:
3 Tbs butter
1 Tbs bourbon
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large zipper-style plastic bag, mixing well. Add the steak; seal bag securely, removing as much air as possible, and place in a large bowl. Marinate for 8 hours or overnight in refrigerator, turning occasionally.
Remove steak from marinade, reserving marinade.
Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot coals (350* to 400*F / 175* to 205*C) 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until desired doneness, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.
Add the remaining marinade to a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce by half, then add 3 tablespoons of butter and 1 Tablespoon of bourbon. Remove from heat and serve with the flank steak.
To serve, slice steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
