New York steaks are marinated in bourbon and brown sugar, then grilled. The result is a tender, sweet cut of meat, with a slightly crunchy crust that is irresistible
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 (6 ounce) boneless New York strip steaks
- 3 cups bourbon whiskey
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
Gently tenderize steaks with a meat mallet. With a sharp knife, lightly score the meat on one side diagonally. Place steaks in a casserole dish, scored side up, and pour bourbon over them. Rub the brown sugar evenly over each steak. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours.
Preheat grill to high heat, and lightly oil grate.
Place the steaks on the hot grill, with the sugar side down. Let cook until sugar has caramelized, 3 to 5 minutes, then flip steaks, and finish cooking to desired doneness.
