This one was a pure fluke.
I was rushing to prep steaks for a weeknight dinner and our olive oil was nowhere to be found. In the corner that typically houses our cooking oils sat a half-full (or half empty) bottle of Jim Beam. We had just closed-up and winterized our camp in the Enchanted Mountains of NY and brought home some odds and ends.
In a pinch, I spun the cap off like "The Bottle Cap Challenge" and tossed a shot or so across our wagyu ribeyes. Hell, it’s a liquid… and a damn fine tasting one at that, so “why wouldn’t it work as a binder?”
Not only did it work¸ but these steaks offered an amazing rustic, rich, smokey taste that I haven’t quit dreaming about ever since. This is my new GO-TO when it comes to insane flavor.
It’s too easy NOT to try out this flavor enhancement tactic…
