Maisie adores nice, rare, perfectly grilled steak, especially if it has been marinated in a delicious, slightly sweet sauce just like this Bourbon & Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce. I marinated the steak for a few hours in some of the sauce and then grilled the steak, brushing a little bit more on as it cooked. This sauce was absolutely delicious and would also be fabu on some ribs so that will be my next go with it. I served the steak with a little salad, drizzled with the Fig Balsamic Dressing from this recipe, and my Hasselback Potatoes with Garlic Sour Cream. A totally delicious, rich and filling meal.
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 3 tablespoons Whey Low Gold or brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons mild (light) molasses
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 11/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Bring all the ingredients to boil in saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer until sauce is reduced to 2 cups, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Can be made 2 weeks ahead. Cover & chill. Use at room temperature.
I marinated the meat for a few hours in some of the sauce and then brought the meat to room temperature before grilling. As the meat grilled I brushed on additional sauce. Allow the cooked meat to sit for about 15 minutes before slicing.
