Mustard and Sugar Crusted steak

20120513-072428.jpg

I had the most amazing steaks at Lamberts in Austin and this is my attempt to replicate it. I marinated the steaks in bourbon and brown sugar then broke out the blow torch to caramelize the mustard and sugar on the finished steak – a sort of steak with a creme brûlée crust – yummy!!!

Marinade:
3/4 c bourbon
3/4 c brown sugar
1 TBSP of mustard powder
1 TBSP garlic powder
Salt and pepper

1 lb steak

Crust:
2 TBDP Dijon
2 TBSP brown or maple sugar

Combine marinade ingredients, add steaks and marinade in a ziplock bag for 4 hours in fridge.

Remove from marinade and let rest for 30 minutes.

Grill on high 2-3 minutes per side for 1/2 inch steak and 2-4 minutes for 1 inch steals.

Rest 2 – 3 minutes.

Spread mustard over steak, sprinkle with sugar and carmalize with a blow torch. Flip and repeat.

Serves 4.
