Another great grilled recipe from another cookbook we picked up on vacation. This book came from our trip to Disney a few years ago. I had grand intentions of recreating a nice meal we had there but we ended up doing mostly burgers and chicken fingers so the book got shelved.
The worst thing about this book is that it makes me want to go back to Disney – badly. Of course, all of the recipes make you feel like you’re there (just throw on some Disney music and pretend). This marinade gave a nice, sweet steak. You’ll want to turn the steak for the first two minutes to keep it from sticking and to cook it over indirect heat to avoid charring.
Bourbon Steak Marinade
(from Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs)
Marinade for 12 Steaks
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. Jack Daniel’s
1 c. pineapple juice
2/3 c. soy sauce
4 c. water
In a bowl, combine the brown sugar and Jack Daniels and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Mix in the pineapple juice, then the soy sauce, then the water – stirring to combine between each.
Place steaks in a 9×13″ pan and pour the marinade over. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
Grill steaks as desired.
