Whiskey Glazed Flat Iron Steaks with Grilled Sweet


1/4 cup whiskey
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
400g flat iron steaks
1 large sweet potato
1 tbsp + 1 tsp olive oil
1/2 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Combine the brown sugar, ¾ teaspoon salt, whiskey and ½ teaspoon pepper until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Then stir tablespoon of olive oil and add two of the minced garlic cloves.
  • Add the steaks to the marinade and let stand for 20 minutes at room temperature.
  • Remove the towels and use paper towels to dry. Pour the marinade in a small pot and boil for 2 to 3 minutes until slightly reduced so that the sugar does not burn.

  • Bring to boil over medium heat while reducing the heat until sweet potato is tender for about 15 minutes.

  • Then transfer the potato wedges to a bowl and toss it with oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
