Whiskey Balsamic Steak

Hello again! It's so close to the weekend and I am pretty excited for Easter because we are heading to Houston this weekend to see my brother, my parents, and the Hub's lovely folks. It will be a great time with the families for sure! Also, yesterday my friends Mike and Monica were stopping in Dallas for a few hours on a bus road trip. It was so unexpected and so amazing to see them since I have not in almost a year! I just live when friends travel south to visit and we had the best time. So today I have for you another recipe. This was a very simple Pinterest find from Rebecca at Camp Wander Blog that I elaborated on a bit. It combines two things any man of the house would love, whiskey and steak! I hope you enjoy this simple recipe!

Balsamic And Whiskey Steak

   South Beach Diet Phase One


  • Steak of your choice (I used two 8 ounce fillets)
  • 1 ounce (1 shot glass full) of whiskey
  • 1 ounce (1 shot glass full) of balsamic vinigar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil for cooking
  • 1-2 packets of Sugar or Stevia for sauce


 Heat your oven to 375 degrees. Thoroughly salt and pepper your steak and rub the seasonings into the meat so they do not wash off when you marinate. Mix the whiskey and the vinegar in a shallow dish and marinate the steak for 30 minutes, flipping half way through. Heat an oven safe pan with the oil or your grill to medium high heat. Cook the steak for about 3-4 minutes on each side (front and back). Place the grilled steaks on a slightly oiled oven safe pan or if you cooked in a pan, use that, and place the steaks in the oven to finish cooking for about 6-8 minutes. Let the steaks rest outside the oven on a wood cutting board for about 5 minutes to finish cooking. While steaks are resting, put marinade into pan and add the Stevia or sugar to the pan. Let it reduce down to almost a syrup like consistency for a steak sauce. Serve and enjoy for a perfect medium rare!
