Tried this marinade today and it was delicious! We purchased a box of 8 oz. sirloin steaks from GFS and were disappointed because they were tough and thick. We butter-flyed them and used the marinade. They turned out juicy and flavorful! We are going to try this on pork chops next.

Update: since I tried this recipe on this sight, I use it all the time, it's my go to marinade! Use it not only on beef, but pork, & it's great on salmon& shrimp. It's so good, always make my own marinade, no need to buy any marinade!!we just got a new grill , & we needed one! It's a infra- red grill, they are great!!! Well we fixed steaks & shrimp , just like the first time I tried this recipe . Thanx for posting a great recipe!! I really enjoy all- recipes & enjoy trying new things, I can usually find a good recipe to try on this site & also have found old ones that I have lost!!! Anyway, do love this site, I keep browsing now & then!!!

Very nice with a hint of sweet. The steak was very tender. We originally adjusted recipe to amount of steak we were doing, but hubby still had to cut it in half again & had plenty to marinate in. I did think the soy sauce was a little dominating & made it salty for my preference so we'll cut that back just a tad for next time. I suppose since we marinated overnight could be why it seemed salty to me. We decided a serving for one will be enough marinade for one pound of steak. If that doesn't work we'll adjust accordingly.

I double the bourbon and garlic, and omitted the confectioners sugar.

All I could taste is soy sauce.
