Whiskey Marinated Steak is the best marinade for steak. The flavor is incredible and caramelizes when it’s grilled. This steak marinade is the best marinade for t-bones or New York strip steak and topped with a roasted garlic blue cheese butter.
Get your grills ready this summer for the most delicious steak ever! This is the best steak marinade ever! It’s simple and so delicious. And who doesn’t love grilled steak?! I usually serve it with simple pan potatoes and green beans. We picked green and yellow wax beans out of our garden to pair with this yummy steak! And while you’re firing up the grill, check out these great recipes too! Best Chicken Marinade, Blood Orange Chicken, and Grilled Salmon. Do you plant a vegetable garden each season? I love to have fresh corn, heirloom tomatoes, green and yellow wax beans, pickling cucumbers, and fresh herbs. And I’ve had to relearn different varieties of tomatoes that grow better in North Carolina. The soil is so much different here too. Thankfully, I learned how to work aged manure and compost into the soil! If you love heirloom tomatoes as much as I do, you’ll love my Bruschetta recipe!
How should steak be cooked?
Steak internal temperature for medium-rare should be 140 degrees F when removed from the grill. Use your ThermoWorks Thermapen to check the temperature of anything you grill. Traeger Grills has a great grilling guide for cooking your steaks to your desired doneness.
Our patio and grill overlooks the vegetable garden and horse pastures.
