The Balsamic whiskey steak is a delicious entrée that would satisfy both the whiskey and meat lover. I pulled the recipe from Pinterest; however, I believe it originated from Valerie’s Kitchen website http://bit.ly/2qA6ASA. I adapted the recipe slightly based on the cut of beef that I used.
The whiskey marinade definitely enhanced the flavor of the steak and created a “happy, happy” sensation upon the first bite. Once you experience the first bite, you will be curious to try other cuts of steak and brands of bourbon to see if the flavor changes. The recipe indicates 2 to 4 hours of marinade time and I would agree not to go beyond four hours.
The longer time would probably infuse more of the whiskey flavor than a balanced steak-whiskey flavor. I used Makers Mark Bourbon whiskey because the primary grain used is wheat and it may give an earthy characteristic. This recipe would feed approximately 4 people.
