Skillet Bourbon Steak Recipe







Pan-seared bourbon steaks are seared in a cast iron skillet until charred on the outside but still juicy on the inside. They are both sweet and savory with the wonderful flavor of bourbon.

Ingredients

FOR THE STEAKS

  • 2 tablespoons of butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, divided
  • 4 sirloin steaks (4 ounces each), about 1 inch thick, at room temperature
  • coarse salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

FOR THE BOURBON SAUCE

  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon low sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup bourbon
  • 2/3 cup half and half, you can also use evaporated milk or light cream
  • dried parsley for garnish

Instructions

FOR THE STEAKS

First, prepare the steaks by seasoning them with salt and pepper; set aside 20 minutes.

Then, rub the steaks with the Dijon mustard.

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Transfer the steaks to a heated pan, two steaks at a time, and add 1 tbsp of butter.

Cook steaks until golden brown and cooked to desired doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare.

Remove the steaks from the pan and set aside.

Repeat with the remaining steaks.

FOR THE BOURBON SAUCE

In a small mixing bowl, combine bourbon, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, light brown sugar, basil and rosemary; whisk to combine.

Add the bourbon sauce mixture to the hot pan and cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes, or until slightly reduced.

Stir in half and half or light cream and cook for a minute or two, or until thickened.

Remove from the heat and return the steaks to the pan; turn to coat.

Garnish with dried parsley. Happy Cooking Time.
