This addicting steak recipe uses a marinade with whiskey and ketchup to tenderize the steak. So you’re not just adding flavor, this marinade is also making the meat super tender and juicy!



1 (3-4 lb.) flank steak (you can also use a different cut of steak, hanger steak, skirt steak, london broil)

Our Favorite Steak Marinade


  1. Add the steak to the marinade in a plastic, sealable bag or a dish and marinate for 12-24 hours.
  2. Heat the grill to medium heat, about 425 degrees.
  3. Remove the steak from the marinade, wiping off the excess but leaving some of the marinade on the steak.
  4. Grill the steak for 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steak. Refer to the cooking temperatures in the post to help guide you.
  5. Remove the steak from the grill, place on a platter and cover with foil. Let the steak rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  6. Slice the steak against the grain into thin pieces and place back on the platter with any juices from the steak.
