Things I’ve Come to Realize About B.O.B. Bob #314: If you are at the market with B.O.B. Bob, and you tell him to go pick out some meat to throw on the grill, he will always return with rib eye. Never mind the fact that you hate rib eye, and that you comprehend that he knows this, yet he always somehow seems to pick rib eye anyway, because he knows you will cave and let him toss it in the buggy every single time. Why don’t I like it? Bones and mass amounts of fat sneakily hidden throughout the entire steak; what is there to like about that? Yes, I know it’s tender, but it’s not worth the squirmy feeling that comes over me as I am forced to regard a ginormous bone and try not to gag when I get pieces of hidden fat in my mouth. Simply put, it’s just not my thing. This marinade however is definitely my thing. It makes even the most blubbery cut of steak with the most gigantic bone in the universe almost squirm free. At least until I find that elusive fatty glob that makes me want to throw the offensive bone at B.O.B. Bob’s forehead. My suggestion is to use a different cut of meat, but who knows maybe you’re like B.O.B. Bob, and rib eye’s your thing, in which case, watch out for flying bones.
- 4 Tablespoons Jack Daniels Whiskey
- 4 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 Tablespoon Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
- 3 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar, Packed
- 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- 2 Garlic Cloves, Crushed
- Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Pour the marinade into a large Ziploc bag on top of whatever type of steak you are marinating.
- Refrigerate for at least 8 hours before cooking.
- The longer you marinate your steak, the better it will taste. I love to marinate steak overnight, which also helps me get dinner on the table faster the next evening. Heat up the grill and toss on the steak, easy peasy!
- Speaking of easy peasy, try serving this alongside Mushy Peas with or without bacon.
- This marinade will be enough to marinate two large steaks.
- Add a 1/2-teaspoon of Instant Espresso Coffee to the marinade.
- Replace the brown sugar with honey.
