People’s Bourbon Barrel aged Porter Marinated Flank Steaks
The original form of this recipe by Amy Wisniewski uses strait Bourbon in the marinade. I thought I could get the same flavor from a Bourbon aged beer. The use of beer also helps tenderize the meat.
½ C. People’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Porter (or other Bourbon barrel aged beer)
¼ C. honey
1 T. soy sauce
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste.
1 ½ – 2 lbs. flank steak.
Combine the first five ingredients in a bowl and whisk well. Using a large zip lock bag, add the flank steak and pour in the marinade. Seal and allow to marinate at least 1 hour. If marinating for longer than this (can be done overnight), place the sealed bag in the refrigerator.
When ready, prepare a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Grill 5-6 minutes per side for medium rare. I wouldn’t recommend grilling longer. Remove and place on cutting board or serving dish and let rest at least 10 minutes.
Slice the meat against the grain and serve.
