This ​sweet bourbon marinade ​works perfectly on just about anything. It's a mild marinade, so you'll want several hours of marinating time before you grill.


  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup mustard
  • 1 cup Worcestershire sauce

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients and mix until the sugar is completely dissolved. Use right away.

  2. Marinate meats for 4 to 12 hours. If making ahead, store in refrigerator in an airtight container for no more than a week after initial preparation.

  3. Reduce or increase recipe as needed. This will make quite a bit, so adjust accordingly if you are only grilling a small portion of meat.
