This marinade is so flavorful there is no need for steak sauce! Use your favorite brand of whiskey. I use Jack Daniels.

I used this on a fairly thin very cheap cut of meat and it was fabulous. I did make a couple of alterations since I did not have dijon or soy sauce substituted plain yellow mustard and teryaki sauce. everybody L O V E D IT!!!!! Read More

I used sirloin tip steak and marinated it for 24 hours but still was found the steak a bit tough. I was hoping it would have been more tender. I guess this would have been better with a more expensive cut of steak. But I wouldn't use this recipe again. Read More

I'm a vegetarian but I don't let that keep me from the pleasures of marinating! I let some baby portobello mushrooms sit in this overnight then sauteed them with about 1/3 cup of the leftover marinade and a bit of oil. I am eating them right now and I seriously think they are the most delicious mushrooms I have ever tasted! The only thing I might do differently next time is omit the salt since the soy sauce is quite salty already and the extra sodium seems superfluous. Read More

Oh my god this marinade was awesome! I can't think of a single thing i'd change. The whiskey flavor was subtle but tasty. Mixed it with some ground beef and formed it into patties for hamburgers. Than while they were cooking I used a pastry brush to add a little bit more flavor. DELICIOUS! Read More
