About this recipe: This Irish whisky marinade is our favourite for using with steak. It adds a juicy and delicious flavour to the meat.


Serves: 4 

  • 160ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Irish whisky
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced spring onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
  • 4 (200g) steaks (T-bone, sirloin, rump, etc.)

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Extra time:1hr3min  ›  Ready in:1hr30min 

  1. Combine the olive oil, whisky, soy sauce, onion, garlic, pepper, parsley, thyme and rosemary in a large, sealable plastic bag; seal and shake to mix. Add the steaks to the marinade. Seal the bag, squeezing out as much air as possible. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Remove steaks from marinade; discard the marinade. Allow the steaks to come to room temperature before cooking.
  2. Preheat the barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
  3. Cook the steaks until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the centre, 6 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 60 degrees C. Cover the meat with two layers of aluminium foil and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes before serving.
