Do you have ANY idea what it would take to get my hubby to give up any of his single malt? Wonder if Jack Daniels would work…we’ll go cheap.
I’d do it in a heartbeat! In fact, that’s a great idea to marinate, then smoke. We smoke on a Big Green Egg, I’m gonna try this too :)
Would this work for tri-tip?? I’m not a meat person but this sounds so wonderful and simple and I’m smoking 6 tri-tips on my traeger for a family reunion this saturday and sounds perfect!!
Personally, I’ve never tasted such “staples” before so, I say use the most expensive one you’ve got ;)
I plan on using some of my favorite staples to see which works better: 12-year Tullamore Dew or 18-year Jameson.
Ha! Tell him it would be an investment in good taste…yummy steak! I’m sure Jack would be fine though :)
Great Post! I am going to try this now – I’ve got two steaks in the fridge! New follower from Frugal Days. I would love for you to come share at my Farm Girl Blog Fest: http://fresh-eggs-daily.blogspot.com/2012/10/farm-girl-blog-fest-6.htmlLisaFresh Eggs Daily
thanks for sharing.
Didn’t get to marinate as long as I hoped but it still delicious. I even made a reduction of the whiskey and balsamic with a little butter to pour on top. Yum!
You should still try to sear the steak. Best way for the traeger (cheating…but I love them!) is to let it smoke for a period of time (maybe 15-20 minutes), then sear them. I don’t know how you would do that if you are only using a traeger, but that would probably give you the best flavor.
I would just like to point out that whiskey is not whiskey. Pictured in the above picture is a very decent bourbon. Although still in the whiskey family, a bourbon is extremely different from jack daniels and equally different from a single malt(which btw refers to a scotch). A bourbon would do very well in a marinade of this kind where as a scotch, be it single or blended, would be horrible save a few rare types of scotch. A Tennessee whiskey such as jack daniels would be just as bad as a scotch because although they are technically a bourbon they do not have the sweetness or some of the classic bourbon flavors that would make this marinade great.but that being said…You have to actually like whiskey if you are going to like this.
the vinegar also kills any bacteria in the meat , BONUS !
Tried it – it was horrible. Just tasted like whiskey.
hey, sounds like a good combo! Cheers;)
Yum! I found this on Pinterest earlier today and decided to try it with tenderloin for dinner, and wow! It turned out so good! Thank you so much! :)
I use Jack Daniels in my marinades a lot. I will have to try it with the basalmic vinegar.
How about a good old Canadian Rye whiskey, which in my humble opinion rates higher than bourbon or scotch!
Have to agree … there’s Bourbon, there’s Whiskey … 2 different worlds in my opinion (not a whiskey girl, but love a good bourbon …) Scotch? Um, no thank you. Just not my cup of tea.
