Today is national Scotch Day and in honor of the “holiday” we’ve adapted a Whiskey Steak Recipe. Hope you enjoy!
- 4- 8 oz sirloin steaks
- salt and pepper
- 2 crushed cloves garlic
- 1/3 cup sweet-hot mustard
- 4 slices bacon
- 1 T olive oil
- 3 T chopped fresh rosemary
- 2/3 cup scotch/ bourbon whiskey
- 2 T Worcestershire sauce
- 1 T brown sugar
- 1 T lemon juice
- Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, mix together the garlic and all but 2 teaspoons of the mustard.
- Place the steaks on a plate, and spread half of the garlic mustard mixture over one side of them. Let stand for 30 minutes.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry bacon until crisp, then remove from the pan, leaving the grease. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
- Heat the bacon grease in the skillet over medium-high heat, and add olive oil if necessary to cover the bottom of the pan.
- Fry steaks mustard side down for about 5 minutes, until golden brown.
- While the steaks are frying, spread the remaining garlic and mustard over the top.
- Flip the steaks over, and fry for about 2 minutes, until browned. Remove steaks to a serving platter, and keep warm.
- Keep the skillet over medium-high heat, and stir in the rosemary, scotch, reserved mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Top steaks with crumbled bacon and the sauce, and serve.
