I love the steak at a restaurant I frequent. I developed a recipe at home through trial and error. I feel it comes pretty close. This is a flavorful way to grill steak. Hope you enjoy!

I am the author of this recipe, but I need reviewers (users) to know that you can combine these same ingredients (minus the steaks) and cook over low medium heat for 10 minutes. Add 1 tablesspoon cornstarch to thicken. Simmer an additional 4 minutes. Use as a sauce to dip steaks in while eating! OR~ I have never done it but it was suggested to me to boil the marinade that is left over for same purpose. Read More

Myself nor the rest of my family (4 of us) liked this recipe. It was like an Asian style steak dumped in whiskey.The liquid smoke didn't go with the soy or teryaki flavor at all.That is mainly used with barbecue though I can appreciate trying knew things. With little tastes of the rest of the ingredients mainly all that was tasted was the whiskey. Maybe you have to be a whiskey lover to enjoy this. I was really disappointed. Read More

I loved loved loved this marinade. No need for steak sauce! Because I was only marinating 4 steaks & used the zip-lock bag method I halved all of the liquid except the whiskey! I subbed beef broth for the water and OJ instead of pineapple. Just a few splashes of smoke. A recipe well done highly recommended! Read More

OMG! This stuff is great. I used Jack Daniels for the whisky and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. It makes a lot of marinade. We used NY strip steaks that were about 1 1/2" thick. We marinated and cooked 4 steaks However I think this makes enough marinade for 6 or may 8 steaks. I did marinate for right at 24 hours. The lady at the liquor store suggested that I should also try to marinate veggies in this. But a word of caution from her "only marinate for about 15 - 20 minutes!" Read More

This marinade was unbelievable! The steaks came out so juicy and full of flavour. At first I was concerned as a few reviewers mentioned the whiskey taste was way too strong (and I hate whiskey). I let it marinate for 24 hours and when I took it out of the fridge I could really smell it (which further scared me)! But after barbequing it... WOW it tasted amazing. The only change I made was replacing pineapple juice for orange (that's all I had). Read More

What an excellent marinade! I used chicken stock instead of water and used 3/4 cup of whiskey on accident! I used minced ginger instead of the teriyaki sauce and added a bit more brown sugar. This is definately a keeper. Read More

I followed the recipie exactly and this is an awesome marinade! Loved this. My steak was flavorful and ahhhmazing! Thanks Victoria I really enjoyed this and will be using this recipie often! What I do is make up a batch of this marinade and place each steak in a freezer bag with this marinade then pop in the freezer. When ready to have one just take it out of the freezer and thaw. Something about thawing out the meat while in the marinade really pulls it into the meat. I do this with any of the steak marinades that I use. This way I can have a great steak anytime! Read More
