Anything with the words “Jack Daniels Marinade” in them doesn’t need any introduction, right?
I mean, come on, look at that picture….steak that has been marinading in Jack Daniels marinade, cooked and then topped with the same sauce? I’m drooling just thinking about it!
The “everything but the kitchen sink” name comes from the fact that this was just thrown together. My husband and I just got married and moved into our place together (across the country from where I live!), so I don’t have a car yet to go out and grab stuff to make dinner. We had two steaks left from dinner the night before, and I wanted to marinate them, so I literally walked around grabbing what we had (remind you- we’ve been in the place for 3 days at this point, so there wasn’t much!). What resulted was a tangy, sweet marinade that tenderized the meat and made a great topping!
Don’t be daunted by the large ingredient list- I venture to guess you already have everything you need already in your kitchen!
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a slow boil, and then simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently.
Let cool before using as a marinade (I poured mine into a heat safe bowl and put it in the fridge for 15 minutes.)
Makes 1 cup.
I marinated my steaks using half of the mixture and reserved the other half to heat up after the steaks were cooked- it tasted wonderful on top of the steaks!
