Brown Sugar and Bourbon Hanger Steak

Brown Sugar and Bourbon Hanger Steak

This boozy, savory sauce with a hint of hot and sweet depth is the perfect way to marinade a bold tasting non-traditional cut of beef.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 lb hanger steak (Skirt steak, flank steak, bavette, or plenty of other cuts will work too)
  • 2/3 cup Bourbon
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tbs mustard
  • 1 tbs hot sauce
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • Combine all ingredients but the steak in a zip top bag or a wide, shallow bowl. Add the steak and mush it around to distribute the marinated.
  • Let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes, or in the fridge overnight.
  • Preheat the grill to medium high. Grill 5 to 6 minutes per side for a nice medium rare, making sure not to budge it while it's cooking. Then remove from heat to let rest 5 to 10 minutes before cutting. It's best when thinly sliced against the grain.
