Sometimes our taste buds yearn for a spicy tingle or umami-inspired flair. Spice rubs enhance certain beef cuts, true. But marinades? They can take a favorite steak or roast to new levels — like the sweet heat from this Bourbon Marinade. It combines bourbon and brown sugar with Worcestershire and soy sauce to create complex flavors. Best of all … it’s a simple recipe with ingredients you probably have on hand!
- ¼ cup Bourbon whiskey
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
