I usually keep it really simple with meat seasoning, but I wanted to try something new this time around. I used this marinade for buffalo steaks, and they turned out juicy and flavorful. Would be great on chicken too! Have you ever had buffalo steaks before? I had tried ground buffalo but never steaks. I happened upon them at Whole Foods and figured they were worth a try. They were actually a little less expensive than beef steaks, and they looked very lean. I was happy about the health benefits of the lean cuts but worried they might end up dry or tough. As soon as I took the steaks out of the package, I could feel how tender they were even before cooking them. I hoped as long as I was careful not to overcook them, they would turn out well, and boy was I right. I marinated them in this Irish Whiskey Marinade for about two hours before searing them in my iron skillet, and they were tender, juicy, and delicious!

I used this marinade (substituting white whiskey for the Irish, as I didn’t have any Irish…) and it was fabulous. I will definitely be using the recipe again, probably experimenting with different types of whiskey. Thanks for a tasty no-fat marinade recipe!
