  • 4 (14 - 16-ounce) Certified Angus Beef ® T-bone steaks
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon bitters
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  1. Combine bourbon, orange zest and juice, bitters, Worcestershire, brown sugar, water, peppercorns and 2 teaspoons salt in a saucepan; bring to a simmer stirring occasionally. Reduce marinade by half over medium-low heat.
  2. Cool marinade completely (below 40°F). Pour into a 1-gallon zipper-locking plastic bag along with t-bone steaks. Marinate 2 - 4 hours, flipping once.
  3. Preheat grill to medium high. Grill steaks about 5 minutes per side for medium rare (125-130°F internal temperature) or until desired doneness is reached. Allow steaks to rest 5 minutes, sprinkle with additional salt and serve.
