Recipe: Bourbon-Pepper Flat Iron Steaks

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 pounds flat-iron steak*
  • Dried parsley, optional

Instructions

  1. Whisk together bourbon, mustard and sugar. Place steak in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over, coating it well. Allow to marinate, refrigerated, for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours, turning once at halfway point.
  2. Remove beef from fridge 30-60 minutes before grilling. When ready to grill, heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium high-high heat. Season both sides of beef heavily with cracked pepper, and one side lightly with kosher salt; grill steak 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove to a cutting board to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Slice thinly against the grain, sprinkle with dried parsley, if using, and serve.

*Flank or skirt steak may be substituted
