Sweet Bourbon Steak

Happy Friday! Seriously, it’s been one of those weeks where today couldn’t come fast enough. I don’t know if it’s because of back to school, or our first week with a new puppy, or the fact that we now have a 3 day weekend. Either way – can I get a Boo-Ya? BOO-YA!!! Now that that’s out of my system….*ahem* Confession: I love cooking with alcohol. Many may find this odd, since I don’t drink alcohol. Pick and choose, I guess! I don’t know why, but the way it can really bring out or combine with flavors when cooking, it’s marvelous. So when I had a delicious Sweet Bourbon Steak over the summer at one of my favorite little restaurants, I had to try it myself.

Sweet Bourbon Steak / Busy Mom's Helper

The outcome was so flavorful and juicy, I ate way more than I should have!

1-2 lb. Steak
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Onions, diced
1/4 cup Bourbon
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. Corn Starch
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper

Combine all of the ingredients (other than steak) in a bowl until well mixed.

Using a fork, poke several holes all over the steak to allow the marinade to soak in.

Pour marinade a zip-lock baggie (or put into airtight container) with the Steak and allow to marinate 2 hours in the fridge. Remove and allow to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Cook on the grill or stove top until desired done-ness, basting with marinade as cooking.

To use the leftover marinade: cook in a small pot until boiling and juices are thoroughly cooked. Serve over steak.
