grilled beef steaks with espresso-bourbon sauce
- 4 beef tenderloin steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 4 oz each) or 2 boneless beef top loin (strip) steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 1 1/4 lbs)
- salt & pepper to taste
- ESPRESSO BOURBON SAUCE
- 1/4 cup bourbon
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons instant expresso coffee powder
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Combine all sauce ingredients, except pepper, in small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 8 minutes or until sauce is thickened and reduced by about half, stirring occasionally. Stir in pepper. Keep warm.
Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill tenderloin steaks, covered, 10 to 14 minutes (top loin steaks 11 to 14 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with sauce.
Cooks Tip: To broil place tenderloin stteaks on rack in brolier pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from the heat (top loin steaks 3 to 4 inches from heat). Broil tenderloin steaks 13 to 16 minutes (top loin steaks 13 to 17 minutes) for medium rare to medium done-ness, turning once.
