This recipe for drunken steak means marinating your steak in a little of what you are enjoying during happy hour for an even happier steak dinner!


  • 12 pounds flank steak or flap steak
  • ½ cup rum
  • Juice and peel from 1 lime
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. Place the steak and all remaining ingredients in a plastic zippered bag. Zip it up and let it sit in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours.
  2. When you are ready to cook, turn the grill on high and let it heat up for 10 minutes. Pop the steak on the grill (discard the marinade) and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare depending on the size of your steak (if you are using a meat thermometer, you are looking for 140 degrees).
  3. Let the steak rest under foil for 5 minutes, then slice it up against the grain and serve!
