Grill season is almost here!! Try this with steak or chicken.

Bourbon-Marinated Flank Steak

Flank steak is delicious when itís marinated and then broiled or grilled. The combination of bourbon, Dijon mustard, and Worcestershire in this marinade makes for a boozy, savory sauce that enlivens the meat. Whip it up for a quick dinner and use the leftovers in our Bourbon Steak Sandwich if there are any leftover.




Makes: 2 to 3 servings

INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup Dijon mustard or honey Dijon
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds flank steak, trimmed of fat and sinew

INSTRUCTIONS

Combine bourbon, mustard, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper in a ziplock bag. Allow to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. (The steak can be marinated for up to 24 hours. Refrigerate it while marinating.)

Once steak has marinated, heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium high. Grill steak for 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare and remove to a cutting board to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Season with additional salt and pepper, slice thinly against the grain, and serve.

<img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> play nice kiddies!! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> BTW, my friends' hubby owns a butcher shop and he gave me a simple recipe for skirt steak. I'd never heard of it. Apparantly skirt steak is tough but delicious. Just put the skirt steak in a ziplock with a small bottle of Wishbone Russian dressing. Keep it in the fridge for at least 3 days, 5 is better, then grill. My family LOVE this!! Give it a try.

Skirt Steak recipe for you Contessa

Rosemary Skirt Steak with Balsamic Glazed Onions

3 tbls fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 c. extra-virgin Olive Ooil
3 lg cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cracked black peppercorns
1/2 good balsamic vinegar, divided
1 1/2 pounds skirt steak
2 red onions, peeled and sliced into 1/4 rounds

crush rosemary in your hands. Combine in small bowl with 1/4 c olive oil, the garlic, cracked peppercorns, and 2 tbls balsamic vinegar. Pour over skirt steak - turning to coat both sides,press spices into the steak and marinade for 30 minutes. Brush the onions with olive oil and balsamic when ready to grill. Do the grill thing for 2-3 minutes per side (or more depending on how you like your steak)- brushing the top generously with balsamic vinegar.

Def. have to slice against the grain or it will be as tough as leather

I served this with a salad with homemade green goddess dressing, spring peas with cipollini onions, horseradish mashed potatoes and an apple tart for Easter.

Will have to try your Flank steak recipe! it sounds wonderful!

Skirt Steak/Flank Steak...
both pretty similar, but Skirt Steak has more marbling and therefore a higher fat content... therefore juicer...
We love them both and they are our steaks of choice...
Best flavor(s) of any steak!
We prefer them over a rib-eye or Filet...
The key to both is to slice across the grain, and slice as thin as you can...
and cook on a very HOT grill, and quickly! about 2.5-3 minutes a side...
that will make then rare, the only way to serve them without losing flavor! very tender...

Can you take them marinating? I'll bet a couple of days in the marinade would be fantastic! But, if they're more than 3 oz. liquid it could be problematic in a carryon.... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" />

This same recipe was posted on Chow and many comments say to add 1/4 brown sugar to the marinade. Another suggestion is to marinated for 24 hours and then pan-roasted it. "

Used a 12" skillet and browned it over really high heat about 4 or 5 minutes per side, then stuck the skillet in a 450 oven for about 6 minutes. Took the steak out of the skillet and let it sit covered with foil until the temp came up to 130 degrees, deglazed the pan with about 1/2 cup of water, added the marinade and cornstarch and boiled it to make the gravy. Super tasty!


Sounds Yummy!
