I’m a firm believer a good steak doesn’t need any extras — no sauces, no marinades, no fluff. But, sometimes, it can be really fun to try something new.
I’d wanted to attempt a Crown Royal marinade for a while, and when I landed some awesome-looking Strip steaks on sale this week, I decided to make the leap. I was pleased with the results, so of course I thought I’d share the recipe with you.
Ingredients and materials:
2 strip steaks, 1 ½ inches thick (Mine weighed in at just under 2 pounds total)
1 cup of Crown Royal
2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
1 gallon-sized Ziploc bag
Place steaks in Ziploc bag.
Mix Crown Royal and peppercorns, add to bag.
Refrigerate for 4 hours up to overnight.
Remove steaks and pat dry. Knock off any peppercorns.
Sprinkle steaks with black pepper or garlic pepper and grill or pan broil to desired doneness.
