Bourbon Marinade

Happy Fall!  Fall is my favorite time of year.  All of the beautiful colors, the crispness in the air, and the harvest of great food.  I have been  busy picking the produce from our garden.  We have been enjoying fresh tomatoes and other veggies from our garden.

Today's recipe is for a fantastic marinade I discovered for beef.   Bourbon Marinade.  This  marinade has Bourbon, brown sugar, soy sauce, finger, and other wonderful ingredients that makes your select cut of beef delicious.   I have marinated steaks and a roast using this recipe and the results were wonderful.  The meat is tender, moist, and the taste is mouth watering.  Bourbon marinade is the new family favorite.

  1. I don't eat much red meat, but I bet it will work with chicken too.

  2. Since I grew up in bourbon country, I bet this marinade is great! We always like sauces, etc with a touch of bourbon but I don't believe I've made one for beef. Looking forward to trying this and thanks for the recipe!

  3. I love fall too !
