Beef

Whiskey Marinated London Broil

It’s Summer and there’s beef on the grill!

Where can you go wrong?

You will love this marinade as it really penetrates the meat and makes a great gravy afterwards!

We use a whiskey here but you can also use bourbon…the bourbon adds a subtle smokiness to the meat and is awesome as well

I like to gently score the London broil to allow a deeper penetration of flavor from the marinade

Score through the width

Score through the length.  Be sure not to cut to deep
Flip and repeat on the other side

Now lets make a marinade

You will need 1/2 cup of whiskey (this recipe is exact, so if you pour say, 3/4 cup of whiskey I personally recommend you drink it back down to 1/2 cup…  lol)

Next up is 1/2 cup of Worcestershire Sauce, 1/4 cup of Soy sauce, 1 tbs of Gravy Master, 1 tsp each of kosher salt and ground black pepper, 2 grated garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon of whole black peppercorns and add in about 2-3 tbs of honey

You can soak the peppercorns in water for 1/2 hour or more to soften and reduce potency or just put them in as is for some kick

Place all your ingredients into a bowl and whisk together

Place your meat in a resealable baggie, pour in your marinade, force the air out and seal

Marinate for a couple hours or overnight (which would be better)

Drain the marinade into a pot and bring to a rapid boil, add 1 cup of stock, this will make a great base for the gravy

You can use whatever stock you prefer, we used our Homemade Veggie Stock

Let the gravy base reduce while you grill the meat

Before grilling the meat, let it rest and come up to room temperature

I get my grill up to about 375 F on indirect heat, meaning the burners are on/off/on, so it is acting more like an oven

I start the meat off on the first side for about 5 minutes, then turn the meat (not flip) and cook for another 4 minutes

Flip the meat and cook another 3 – 4 minutes or until a thermometer registers 150 F

Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing

While the meat rests melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a small pan, then whisk in around 1/4 cup of flour

Cook until the mixture is lightly browned

Whisk this into the gravy to thicken it

Serve your steak with some of your whiskey gravy!
