What’s for Dinner?: Balsamic Whiskey SteakNovember 21, 2012
- Mikka WeeWords
If you have tired of the old Worcestershire or salt & pepper marinated steak, here’s a quick and simple alternative that’ll easily become your new favorite: Balsamic Whiskey Steak.
The combination of the tangy Italian vinegar and the robust taste of the Irish whiskey bring out the steak’s beefy flavor. Because most marinades are too strong, your tastebuds forget who the true hero of the dish is.
For good measure, you might want to top it with a teeny dollop of butter. Agree? Agree.
