It’s almost that time to bring out the sunscreen and fire up the grill as the official kick-off to start summer approaches. What better time of year to enjoy something quintessentially American, like Maker’s Mark, than the last weekend in May?

Whether grilling this Memorial Day or just taking some time to sit on the porch and enjoy the warm weather, Maker’s Mark has just the thing to delight and refresh. Made in small batches from red winter wheat instead of rye, its smooth taste allows bourbon enthusiasts to enjoy neat, as a marinade, or in a delicious cocktail!

For something different this Memorial Day, try the Bourbon Marinated Hangar Steak made with Maker’s Mark.

Bourbon Marinated Hangar Steak

1/2 cup Maker’s Mark® Bourbon
6 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon garlic
1 tablespoon shallots
1 pound hangar steak

  1. To make the marinade, combine ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute. Pour the marinade into a shallow dish and set aside to cool.
  2. Add the beef to the cooled marinade, stir to evenly coat and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Dry the beef with paper towels. Heat a large pan/skillet over high heat. Sear the beef 3 minutes on each side for medium rare, remove from the pan and rest meat. Cook down excess marinade, slice and serve.
