{ #COOKBOOKCLUB }: The Skinny Confidential’s Naughty Whiskey Marinade that you already have all the ingreds for + some July 4th sales !!

Back at it with the Cookbook Club!

I mentioned here that I was featuring The Skinny Confidential book. Think easy, breezy, effortless recipes that will make you look & feel good.

One of the first things that caught my eye was her ” Naughty Steak Marinade” recipe.

It was simple, to the point, & uses whiskey! My favourite approach when it comes to cooking a steak. 😉

Fourth of July is obviously around the corner #onatuesday soo this marinade is perfect for some pool party grilling!

It’s super easy, flavorful, healthy, & you most likely already have everything to make it right this second.

Now let’s talk Marinade!

There are only four ingredients :: balsamic vinegar, rye whiskey, chili flakes, & sea salt.

All you do is take the a 2 : 1 : 1 ratio of balsamic, whiskey, & chili flakes. Add enough salt to taste and whisk together until combined.

Take whatever you are cooking: steak, chicken, pork, portobellos, veggies, etc – & coat it with the marinade. Put in a bowl, cover w/ plastic wrap or a lid & refrigerate for 40 – 60 minutes. Cook as desired!

Easy, yeah? & it really sexes up your proteins / main dishes. It brings out the umami & beefy savoriness. The balsalmic & whiskey complement each other nicely. Love everything about it.

I used Lauryn’s marinade on a Top Sirloin Steak – cooked until medium rare on a grill pan {we have this one and it is amazing} over a lil grapeseed oil, 5 minutes on each side.

The options to use it are honestly endless: grilled chicken {super yum on a sandwich or salad}, portabellos as a vegetarian alternative, ground beef or veggie burgers, meatballs, pineapples – you name it!

If you don’t have rye whiskey, any whiskey or bourbon will suffice. I used Maker’s Mark – a general favourite of mine!

I HAD to share, especially with the holiday coming up on our heels. This is a super easy thing to add to your last minute summer meny. Seriously effortless!

Like all of Lauryn’s recipes, this was beyond easy & makes eating on the healthier side a breeze. If you’re grilling out tomorrow, give it a go!

Al right – that’s all I got!

Any fun July 4th plans?! We are taking it low key – still recovering from the week, but looking forward to some fireworks, bourbon, & steaks. 🙂

Listed below, I have some of my favourite sales going on right now – some are seriously too good!!

Happy 4th!

  • happy Sunday 💙 just caught up on big little lies and I have soooo many theories 🌊 #momentswithsunday #biglittlelies #hbo
  • one of my fav things about aromatherapy is how different scents appeal to you depending on how you’re feeling. Eucalyptus smelling particularly good right now? it well help bring the clarity you’re craving . Chamomile for tonight? this will make it easier to decompress & relax. 🧖🏻‍♀️ I love the aromatherapy from @aeraforhome - I use the oils on my wrists & in the bath as well as with their seriously smart diffuser for home. It brings a nice luxe hotel vibe & can always set the mood. The diffuser is sleek, chic, & smart: you can connect it to wifi & Alexa to control and adjust! All of Aera’s scents are hypoallergenic, non toxic, cleans, & completely pet safe. Swipe through to see it the diffuser in action + a suuuper satisfying video 💆🏻‍♀️🔮 i have a full review on the smart diffuser {& why it’s so smart} and the aromatherapy oils on www.essellesse.com • link in bio ⚜️#aromaistherapy #aera #aeraforhome #ad
