Skillet Bourbon Steak

This recipe is the perfect steak dinner for any occasion. The steak is tender, a little tangy, and the sweet flavor of bourbon helps make this flavorful sauce a perfect partner for a juicy sirloin steak.

Seeing that a number of you really loved my recipe for Bourbon Chicken and for my pan seared sirloin steak, I definitely knew that it was time to share our other favorite recipe for Bourbon Steak.

If you think you need to go to a steakhouse in order to enjoy a great steak, this recipe will tell you that you are wrong. Make YOUR house THEEE exclusive steakhouse, m’kay?!

Besides, with all of the ingredients cooked in one pan, this steakrecipe couldn’t be quicker to prepare and just as easy to clean up! But the bourbon sauce makes it waaaay extra special.

How To Cook Steak In A Skillet

Please whip out your cast iron skillet because that is the best tool for preparing a good steak. This method of pan-searing a steak works best with steaks that are an inch thick, or less, and boneless.

  1. 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.
  2. Rub the steaks with dijon mustard on both sides and add to the skillet, two steaks at a time, and a tablespoon of butter.
  3. In the meantime, put together the bourbon sauce by combining soy sauce, light brown sugar, bourbon, and dried herbs in a mixing bowl.
  4. Remove steaks from the pan and deglaze the skillet with the bourbon sauce.
  5. Stir in half & half or light cream and continue to cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, or until sauce has slightly thickened.
  6. Remove skillet from heat, place steaks back in skillet and turn to coat with the sauce.

Serving Suggestions

Serve the steak with lemon butter green beans, and ENJOY! Include this La Scala chopped salad, too, as well as a side of these parmesan crusted potatoes.
