Bourbon Marinated Flat Iron Steak
In our household, we love the tender beefy-flavor of Flat Iron steak - fresh from the local farmer's market. While we used this marinade for our favorite steak, it's also perfect for pork, chicken, and fish as well.
1/3 cup of your favorite cooking bourbon (I used Evan Williams Black Label)
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced finely
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp pepper
1 flat iron steak (about 1 - 1 1/2 pounds)
In small bowl, blend all ingredients. Place steak into a gallon Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over meat, being careful to scrape all the goodies into the bag. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours - better yet, at least 8 hours.
When you're ready to cook, pre-heat the grill on high 10-15 minutes.
Remove steak from bag and pat dry.
Reduce grill to medium to medium-high heat and cook about 4 minutes on each side, rotating the steak 90 degrees for those great grill marks, and cook until medium rare.
Turn off grill and allow to rest 5 minutes.
Slice thin against the grain (like flank steak) for pure deliciousness!
