Honey Bourbon Grilled Steak

Honey Bourbon Grilled Steak

I was kind of feeling like experimenting with a new bourbon steak recipe. Honey Bourbon Grilled Steak was the delicious result.


Usually I’m a minimalist when it comes to steak.

Simply season with olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper and let the steak speak for itself.

So I went to the local butcher and bought 2 gorgeous, thick cut New York Strips.

And went to my kitchen to see how I could become inspired.

Honey Bourbon Grilled Steak was the mouth-watering, delicious result.

I put the steaks into a gallon size plastic bag along with soy sauce, bourbon, worcestershire sauce, honey, and some garlic powder.

Massage the bag until evenly mixed.

And the bourbon steak will refrigerate overnight, at least 24 hours.

I grilled Honey Bourbon Grilled Steak on our Traeger preheated to 450 degrees.

They took about 7 minutes per side for medium temperature.

On a regular grill over medium high heat I think it would only take about 5 minutes per side.

But, every grill is different, and everyone likes their steak at different temperatures.

So adjust the cook times accordingly for this honey bourbon grilled steak 🙂
