Jack & Coke Steaks

 Jack & Coke Steaks! Yes, Sir!


It’s time for my June installment of the Secret Recipe Club.  I have to tell you how tickled I was when I got my assignment!  This is a blog I have literally drooled over for quite some time.  I dove right in and started trying to decide what to make because trying to decide was going to be difficult! How do I pick one thing?

Amy’s Cooking Adventures is hosted by, you guessed it, Amy.  Amy is a stay at home mom of two boys and I loved reading about her adventure into cooking and then blogging.  Amy actually hosts two blogs, the other is called Amy’s Confectionery Adventures.  Her recipes are all to.die.for.

The day I told myself that I HAD to chose JUST ONE, I narrowed it down to whatever I chose was going to be our dinner that night.  So, that ruled out the Patriotic Minty Watermelon Sangria — but you can bet your buns I will be making that one VERY soon.  I mean, if I really needed an excuse, the 4th of July is right around the corner, right?  It also ruled out the glorious Blood Orange Tartlets .  It seems as though narrowing it down to one recipe category “entrees” would help.  Then all I had to do was decide between my top two, this Jack & Coke Steak recipe or the Sweet & Sticky Baked Chicken.  The grill won, but don’t feel bad for that chicken, because trust me, we will meet again.

I am typically not one to marinade my steaks.  Usually I just sprinkle them with a little salt and pepper and move on with my life.  This marinade is seriously thebomb.com (do the kids still say that?)  It’s got a perfect sweet/spicy pure awesomeness taste to it.  I just can’t explain it… I will just have to just encourage YOU to try it yourself.

How do you like your steak prepared?  For us, this is a little rare.  We like ours Medium, we have a few minutes left!

I served them with a side of Homemade {double fried} French Fries and a salad.

I copied Amy’s recipe exactly, except that I doubled it, to make four NY Strips instead of two.  I marinaded them in a 9×13 baking dish covered tightly with foil, instead of the ziplock Amy suggests.  I will share Amy’s recipe, if you need more meat, just do what I did, and double it up!

  • ½ cup Jack Daniel’s Bourbon
  • 1 cup Coca Cola

  1. Oh, this looks delicious! Such a kick to be assigned your blog right after you had my recipe last month. I had a wonderful time getting to know more about you and your blog. I still want to sneak those strawberry bars into the schedule before strawberries are all done for the year. Have a great week!

  2. We will just love your Jack Coke Steaks and just in time for grilling season, this is a great recipe. Thanks for sharing, this is a great choice for the SRC!

  3. Oh my gosh, I had Amy’s blog a couple months ago and TOTALLY wanted to make this! It was a little chilly to grill (I know, I know, it’s never too chilly to grill…), so I picked something else, but now I’m totally kicking myself, because these look great!!! Great choice.

  4. My husband is learning the grill, and I know we would both love the flavor combination going on here. Pinning this for him to try next weekend!

  5. The flavor was so Devine, I didn’t have Jack Daniels so I substituted Jim Beam. I will definitely make it again! Served with fresh corn on the cob an chopped salad.

    1. I’m so happy you liked them! I’ve subbed a different whisky, too! Sounds like a great summertime meal, Rimanda!
