  • 2-1 LB top sirloin steaks
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Bourbon Glaze:

  • ¾ cup bourbon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch + 1 tbsp water for roux


  • Take your steaks out of the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat with 2 tablespoons of canola oil. Season steaks with garlic salt and pepper. Once oil begins to smoke add steaks to skillet.
  • Cook steaks 5 minutes each side or until desired doneness and remove from heat.
  • Let steaks "rest," and prepare the bourbon sauce. In a medium bowl combine bourbon, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar minced garlic and honey. Bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water for roux. Pour into sauce and mix to incorporate. Reduce heat and allow sauce to thicken (about 5 minutes).
  • Pour bourbon sauce over top sirloin steaks garnish with fresh rosemary and serve with roasted potatoes, or garlic butter mushrooms.
