Jack Sirloin Steak

For the past thirty years the folks at Jack Daniels have hosted the most prestigious invitational bbq competition in the World. Top teams from all over the globe come together to compete in “the Holler” just below the distillery in Lynchburg TN. The event is special for cooks and spectators. It needs to be on your must travel list if you’re a fan of good whiskey and Bbq.

At “the Jack” teams find brilliant ways to incorporate Jack Daniels into their winning recipes. Not only is whisky great for sipping; you can use it as an ingredient for cooking to capture its’ wonderful flavors.

In this recipe I use Jack Daniels to create a glaze for a sirloin steak.

Jack Sirloin Steak

First, the steak is marinated for several hours (you could go overnight with the marinade but it needs at least 4 hours).

Jack Daniels Marinade Recipe:

  • 1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
  • 2 TBS Soy Sauce
  • 2 TBS Worcestershire
  • 1 TBS Wine Vinegar
  • 1 TBS Brown Sugar
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 TBS Fresh Ginger
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

Once I removed the steak from the marinade, I kept the seasoning really simple. Just Kosher Salt. Then I let the steak sit out and come up to room temp while I fired up the grill.

For this cook I used my PK Grill 360 – but you can use any direct grill for cooking this steak. I did use my Grill Grates on top of my grate – because it helps to regulate the heat evenly and gives those awesome grill marks.

The total cook time on this Sirloin Steak was 12 minutes. I went 6 minutes each side – with a twist halfway through to get those cross-hatch marks.

In the last 2-3 minutes I glazed this Sirloin Steak with my Jack Daniels glaze… and man this stuff is good! It goes great to give sirloin steaks that extra flavor on top.

Jack Glaze Recipe:

  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Pineapple Preserves
  • 1/4 cup Killer Hogs Vinegar Sauce
  • 2oz Jack Daniels Whiskey
  • 2oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Sesame Seeds

I used cooked these steaks for about 12 minutes – but I used my Thermoworks Thermapen to give verify the internal temp so I could pull it at a perfect medium rare. I was shooting for 124 internal (and the steak will carry over while it rests).

The results speak for themselves – this is a mouth-watering Sirloin Steak and you’ll be soaking up every bit of deliciousness.

This steak is the perfect dinner for two. Serve it up with loaded baked potatoes and save a little Jack over ice for relaxing afterwards.

  1. Malcom, in other recipes where you use pineapple, you’ve mentioned that orange was a suitable substitute for someone with a pineapple allergy. Same here I’m assuming?

  4. Stumbled upon this recipe, decided to give it a try, and it came out perfect. Used a Weber with grill grates to get those nice marks and the steak was awesome even without the dipping sauce, but the sauce takes it over the top!
