If you like your beef 'shaken, not stirred', try this great tipsy marinade for the summer bbq season! Spice up the presentation with an olive and toothpick garnish!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1/4 cup gin
- 1 tablespoon dry vermouth
- 1 tablespoon green olive brine
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 4 (1/2 pound) beef sirloin steaks
- salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl, combine onion, garlic, barbecue sauce, gin, vermouth, olive brine, and basil.
Sprinkle each steak with salt and pepper, and place in resealable sandwich bags. Divide marinade between each bag, and seal. Ensure that marinade is evenly distributed around steaks. Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
Preheat grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.
Remove steaks from bags, and discard marinade. Grill steaks for 7 to 8 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.
