Whiskey Round Bottom Steak


Recently I had to pay $1330 for a major car repair, and I have car insurance due soon, AND I’m moving.  So I quickly realized that I need to save money like crazy.  I have gone through my fridge and discovered so much meat I saved for a later date!  Including tenderized round bottom steak.  I remember buying this a couple months back, thinking it was ground beef but after looking more carefully realized it was a different cut of beef.  I have never used this type of beef before, so I looked up a few recipes and found one where I didn’t have to buy a single thing from the grocery store: whiskey steak.  WHISKEY.  STEAK.  Who can say no to that?

This is literally the easiest recipe ever.  It does take about an hour, so not the quickest, but even the most amateur of chefs could make this.  The sauce is scrumptious, with great hints of Bulleit bourbon.

If you happen to have some frozen round bottom steak in the freezer, or are looking for a new great recipe, give this a try!  It’s especially yummy with a glass of red wine 🙂

YIELD: 4 servings

TIME: 1 hour

2 lbs tenderized round bottom steak
salt and pepper, to taste
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/3 cup honey mustard, divided
4 slices bacon
3 Tbsp chopped rosemary
2/3 cup bourbon whiskey (I used Bulleit bourbon)
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice (I used fresh lime juice, worked great!)

Season steaks with salt and pepper on both sides, and place on a plate.  Mix garlic and mustard together, and spread half of garlic mixture on steaks.  Let sit for 30 minutes.

Fry bacon until crisp, set aside and crumble, and reserve bacon fat.  Heat the bacon grease over medium high heat and cook steaks mustard side down for 5 minutes.  While cooking, spread remaining garlic mixture on steaks, reserving about 2 teaspoons.  Flip steaks over and cook 2 minutes, and transfer to a serving platter; keep warm.

Stir in rosemary, whiskey, mustard, Worcestershire, brown sugar, and lemon juice in the skillet, and let simmer for 2 minutes.  Pour sauce generously on top of the steaks and top with crumbled bacon.

Hope y’all enjoy!
