{ #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!
