HOW TO PREPARE SKILLET BOURBON STEAK

Please whip out your cast iron skillet because that is the best tool for preparing a good steak.

  • We’re going to salt our steaks and let them sit for about 20 minutes. When ready to get started, fire up the stovetop and set your cast iron skillet over the heat.
  • Rub the steaks with dijon mustard on both sides and add to the skillet, two steaks at a time, and a tablespoon of butter.
  • In the meantime, put together the bourbon sauce by combining soy sauce, light brown sugar, bourbon, and dried herbs in a mixing bowl.
  • Remove steaks from the pan and deglaze the skillet with the bourbon sauce.
  • Stir in half & half or light cream and continue to cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, or until sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Remove skillet from heat, place steaks back in skillet and turn to coat with the sauce.

Serve with Lemon Butter Green Beans and ENJOY!

NOTES: 

When cooking steak, use a meat thermometer and keep in mind how you want it cooked; rare, medium rare, medium, or well done.

  • 140F internal temperature for RARE
  • 145F internal temperature for MEDIUM RARE
  • 160F internal temperature for MEDIUM
  • 170F internal temperature for WELL DONE

This method of pan-searing a steak works best with steaks that are an inch thick, or less, and boneless.

    I’m wondering if anyone has either left out the brown sugar or subbed swerve or other no carb sugar. Trying to Keto-fy this.

    1. HI! I just leave out the brown sugar when I need to keto-fy it. 😀 Swerve gives it a totally different taste, one that I didn’t like. Could just be me. :))
      Leaving out the brown sugar also changes the taste, but it’s still very good.

      Made this tonight. As Katerina suggested I left out the brown sugar and Wow!! So good!! After having made it without brown sugar and having nothing to compare it to, I don’t think I would like this if it was sweetened. We loved it without it! Thanks for the recipe!!

    I literally decided on this recipe in the grocery store, having eaten chicken for lunch and dinner every single day this week. I found a great deal on a nice sirloin that hubby and I could share and it was pouring rain, so no grilling option. I had pinned the recipe quite awhile ago, and knew we had a couple mini bottles of bourbon on hand. This went together in a very short time and was spectacular!! I served with caprese salad and fresh corn on the cob. Hubby was very impressed with the flavors in this dish. Thanks for the delicious recipe, we’ll definitely have this again!!

    I want to drink that bourbon sauce! I haven’t mastered the indoor steak yet – I’m excited to try your recipe!
