Looking for a perfect grilling recipe for Father’s Day? This whiskey brown sugar marinade from Carla Hall is PERFECTION!
This post is in collaboration with Meijer. All opinions are my own!
The Meijer LPGA golf tournament is coming to Grand Rapids next week and I am SO excited about the special chef events! One of my favorite daytime shows is The Chew and I LOVE Carla Hall. To honor her coming to town next Saturday, I am sharing her Music City Steak recipe. Guys, this is GOOD.
Is there anything better than a perfectly grilled steak? I think not! Treat your dad to a delicious, juicy steak this Father’s Day. You really can’t go wrong with whiskey–especially for Dad’s special day! The marinade of brown sugar, soy and garlic gives this steak and amazing flavor. We were literally fighting over the last bites of this steak–I let Ricky win 🙂
When I’m grilling, I like to cook EVERYTHING on the grill. My favorite trick for items like asparagus or green beans is to make a quick foil packet. Season as normal, then tightly seal a foil “envelope” and the veggies steam perfectly on the grill, while also getting the smoky flavor and grill marks.
- 1/3 cup Whiskey of choice
- 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 cloves garlic , minced
- 1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1.5 pounds Certified Angus New York Strip Steak from Meijer
In a bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients. Pour into a zipper lock baggie.
Add steak. Marinade 1 hour to overnight in the refrigerator.
To grill, remove from marinade. Pat dry.
Grill on 4-5 minutes on each side, or to desired temperature.
Let steak rest for 10 minutes before slicing into strips.
Adapted from Carla Hall's recipe on The Chew: Music City Steak.
Serve with grilled veggies, such as green beans, asparagus or zucchini.
