Mac: It's grilling season and I want something delicious!
The Big Cheese: Let me guess, you're gonna want to have a few beers or cocktails along with it as well?
Mac: Ahhhhhhh...DUH!!! Beers and grilling go together like meat and potatoes!
The Big Cheese: More like you and naps! There's no reason why we can't prepare our meat with a little alcohol.
Mac: That's right! Finally you say something worthy of action.
The Big Cheese: What do you have in mind? Not too much alcohol, I don't want you passing out on the grill, wake up with grill marks on your face. Actually that may be appropriate, like your face is in prison separated from beauty for life!!!
Mac: Take it easy, you look like a broke Fred Flintstone. I have this recipe that's gonna blow your taste buds to pieces!
The Big Cheese: Bring it on!
Mac: It's called Drunk'n Flank Steak. Here's the recipe...
Drunk’n Flank Steak
(Serves 4 to 6)
1 (2- to 2½-pound) flank steak
2 cups bourbon (we prefer Jack Daniels)
¼ cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
½ cup chopped fresh ginger
Salt and black pepper
Throw the flank steak, bourbon, soy sauce, lime juice, red pepper
flakes, garlic, ginger, and salt and pepper in a 1-gallon resealable
plastic bag. Seal the bag tightly, and squeeze to mix. Let this marinate
for 20 hours but no longer, because the flavor will become
bitter. Any less and the steak won’t absorb the bourbon flavor. Grill
the meat on medium-high heat for 15 minutes, or until medium,
with little pink in the middle. You may want to flip the steak with
tongs every 5 minutes. Cut into the meat to make sure it’s medium
to medium rare.
