- star anise
- flank steak
- serrano peppers, diced
- salt & pepper
- olive oil
- sesame oil
- 2% milk
- heavy whipping cream
Step 1: Prepare Spices
Start off by grabbing and crushing all of your spices, which you’ll be using to rub on the flank steak as well as use to make the bourbon cream sauce. Using a grinder or a hammer, break up the star anise, clove, cardamom and cinnamon.
Step 2: Marinate Flank Steak
While you don’t have to, it’s preferable to marinate your flank steak overnight with a portion of the spices, some diced serrano peppers, shallot, salt, pepper, olive oil and sesame oil. You could also just rub it all on and let it sit for a few minutes before you grill it.
Step 3: Bourbon Cream Sauce
Add a bit of 2% milk, heavy whipping cream, and the rest of the spices into a pan over medium heat. Cook until it’s reduced by half.
After the sauce is reduced, add 2 to 3 oz. of bourbon. Let it reduce slightly, then cover it and let it simmer while you finish the flank steak and asparagus.
Step 4: Grill Flank Steak
Grill the flank steak for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Use a brush to coat the meat with a mixture of bourbon and honey (3:1 ratio).
Step 5: Cool & Cut
After removing the flank steak from the grill, let it cool for several minutes. Grab a sharp knife and cut the steak into 1/4 inch slices, against the grain.
Step 6: Bake Asparagus
Season your asparagus with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and shallots and grill it for 5 minutes.
Step 7: Plate & Add Sauce
Put the grilled asparagus on a plate and place the slices of flank steak over it. Go back to your sauce, get a spoonful and drizzle it over the middle of the meat.
