This is one of the most simple marinades yet it is absolutely delicious! The flavor that it brings out in the steak is unreal. I have tweaked the originally recipe just slightly and think it makes a HUGE difference.
1 part Balsamic Vinegar
1 part Whiskey
Freshly chopped rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
Depending on how much steak you’re making you will need to adjust the marinate, but for one large steak I like to tenderize the meat first just to insure that the flavor will really soak into the core of the meat. Mix one part vinegar with one part whiskey and pour into a large zip-lock plastic bag. Chop some fresh rosemary and toss half of the amount into the bag and then push some of the rosemary into the meat that you just tenderized. Add some freshly ground pepper to the bag as well and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. Marinate for at least an hour (the longer the better!), add the salt to the steak at the last second, right before you’re going to cook it.
