Bourbon Street Steak and a Tag

How do you give a ho-hum Wednesday night meal a little pop? I asked my friend Jack and this is what he told me to do...
Bourbon Street Steak -

Start off with flat iron steaks. The homegirlz had friends over so I used two flat iron steaks. These steaks are affordable, tender, lean and have a great flavor.

Since I had two steaks I needed two Jacks. Each little bottle equals 1/4 cup liquid. In a bowl whisk together, 1/2 cup Jack Daniels, 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1 tablespoons grill seasoning, 2 chopped scallions and 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

Pour mixture over steaks and let them marinate for 1 hour oat room temperature (30 minutes each side).

Coat your grill pan with olive oil and pre-heat over medium high heat.

Place the steaks on your screaming hot grill pan and drizzle 2 ladles of marinade over the steaks and let them cook for about 5 minutes.

Flip the steaks and ladle the remaining marinade over them and let the steaks cook until desired doneness. You can't know the beauty of this until you make this in your own kitchen.

Plate, slice and serve.

What kind of side would work with Bourbon Street Steak? Fleur de Lis Pasta of course. I'll show you that tomorrow!

I am an obsessive cleaner.
I love a good Italian table wine.
My favorite color is red.
I am afraid of clowns.
I like to eat outside.
I really enjoy sitting outside in the evenings, when the weather is warm and listen ti The Standards on Sirrius radio.
Sitting on my front porch in a rocking chair reading the paper and having a cup of coffee is a luxury.

First time I have ever been tagged; so, what do I do? Do I respond here in comments, or in my blog?
Yes, I am elderly, and have lived a very sheltered life.

Yum, even though I don't eat much red meat this looks wonderful.

Thanks for the tag. I'm not all that interesting though, I'll get to it soon. Have a lovely day my friend.

I found a liquer that is made by Southern Comfort that would go well in this dish also. I used it in BBQ sauce.

Michele said...

Thanks for the tag! I'll be sure to do it for the weekend.I love a good tag!

I've had bourbon steak when we have been out, but have never tried it at home. This means I'll have to hit my neighbor up for some Jack...I never touch the stuff.

MaryBeth said...

OMG... The steak looks freakin awesome.

Reeni said...

The steak looks fantastic! Thanks for the tag; I am afraid of and hate clowns too! My sister collected clown dolls and figurines when we were kids. I used to sit in her room with all these creepy clown eyes staring at me from her shelves. Wherever I sat it felt like their eyes were following me.

Cheryl said...

Holy cow that looks good, I am a read meat girl!

The Blonde Duck said...

My husband is afraid of clowns too! That's so funny. I'm also a bit of an obssessive cleaner...we just moved offices today and I went nuts with the disinfecting wipes!

Thanks for tagging me! I'll get that up!

Wow, this is great!

I'm just learning to cook and this could easily become a favorite blog.

If you come by for a visit and like what you see, in any of my seven blogs, I'd be happy to do some link swapping.

In that vein, I'd like to invite you to my three-year Blogiversary Celebration Carnival.

Look forward to hear from you.
