Cajun Butter Bourbon Steak

Cajun Butter Bourbon Steak


  • 2 lbs. NY Strip Steak thick cut
  • ¼ cup Dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Bourbon
  • 4 Garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 2 sprigs Thyme
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  •  tbsp Grain mustard
  •  cup Olive oil
  •  cup Dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Red pepper flakes
  • Parsley for garnish

Cajun Seasoning:

  • 1 tbsp Smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1 tsp Onion powder
  • 1 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder


  • In a bowl, mix together the smoked paprika, chili powder, dried oregano, onion powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, sea salt, and garlic powder. Set aside.
  • Generously sprinkle the Cajun seasoning all over the NY strip steak. Transfer the seasoned steak to a plate and refrigerate uncovered for 30 minutes – 1 hour.
  • In the meantime, prepare the liquid marinade. In a large bowl (in which the steak could fit), whisk together the following ingredients: brown sugar, bourbon, minced garlic, olive oil, grain mustard, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, a teaspoon of cajun seasoning blend, and thyme. Save half of the marinade for later.
  • Next, add the steaks to the large bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes or up to 6 hours. The longer……the better!
  • Heat up a large cast iron skillet. Remove the steak from the marinade and season all sides with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook the steaks for roughly 3-4 minutes per side or until the steak reaches 135 degrees F (for medium-rare).
  • Rest the Cajun bourbon steak, while preparing the Cajun butter sauce. With the reserved marinade place into a saucepan and bring to a rapid boil. Reduce the heat to a medium-low and continue to cook the sauce until it begins to thicken. Lastly, whisk in the unsalted butter and then remove from the heat.
  • Slice the steak. Pour the cajun butter sauce over the steak. Garnish with dried parsley and serve immediately
