“This recipe combines elements that I love of my normal marinade "recipe" and an uncle's Whiskey Steak recipe. The longer you marinate the meat, the better it will be- from a few hours to overnight. The flavor is a little sweet, tangy, salty, and garlicky. The nutrition info is not accurate, since it's including all the marinade ingredients in it, so don't be afraid. :-) Prep time includes time to marinate.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 -1 12 lb flank steak
  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 12 cup soy sauce
  • 12 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 13 cup whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 5 garlic cloves (chopped or jarred or minced)
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de provence or 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Mix all ingredients except steak in a large ziptop bag.
  2. Add the steak, close bag, and refrigerate until ready to use- either for hours or overnight.
  3. Pull the steak out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you're ready to cook it. Let it reach room-temperature before grilling.
  4. Shake the meat to remove any excess marinade from it and place on the grill.
  5. Grill for a few minutes per side, until it reaches your desired level of "doneness." Let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
