  • 2 5-6 ounce Flank steaks
  • 1 head garlic roasted
  • 1 large lemon zest and juice
  • 1 orange zest and juice
  • 1 lime zest and juice
  • 1/3 cup bourbon or whiskey
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and black pepper to taste


To roast garlic:

  • To roast the head of garlic, simply cut a small portion of the top of the head. Place the head of garlic on two sheets of aluminum foil. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 20 minutes. Let cool completely.

Marinate Flank Steak:

  • Place the ingredients for the marinate in a large Ziploc bag. Squeeze the cooled garlic cloves out and mash them. Add them to the marinate. Press with your fingers, on the outside of the bag to combine. Place the steaks in the marinate and let sit in the refrigerator for 2-24 hours.
  • Grill on an outdoor grill over medium heat or cook on a grill pan on the stove top. Cook on each side, about 5-6 minutes, for medium rare. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy with seasonal vegetables.
