Canned peach nectar, near the bottled fruit juices in the grocery, is the base for a slightly sweet sauce that pairs well with highly seasoned beef. You can make and refrigerate the sauce up to a day ahead; bring it to room temperature just before serving.
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup chopped Vidalia or other sweet onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups peach nectar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons bourbon
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 (1-pound) flank steaks, trimmed
How to Make It
To prepare sauce, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; saute 5 minutes or until tender. Add nectar, 3 tablespoons sugar, and vinegar. Bring to a boil; cook until reduced to 1 cup (about 15 minutes). Add bourbon, ketchup, Worcestershire, and red pepper; cook over medium heat 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and stir in the lime juice. Cool slightly. Pour the sauce into a blender, and process until smooth.
To prepare steak, combine 1 tablespoon sugar and next 7 ingredients (1 tablespoon sugar through black pepper); rub over both sides of steak. Place steak on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 7 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices. Serve with sauce.
This is good but not the WOW from reading all the reviews. The sauce just wasn't that special. Maybe fatten it up with a hunk of butter!! I bought a 1-pound rib eye instead of flank steak and there was enough leftover for another serving.
4 stars for the sauce, definitely great with bbq pork or chicken too. Made all to recipe, subbing trimmed boneless ribeyes for flank steak & put rub on dry steaks about 90min prior to grilling. Served sliced with skewered grilled potato wedges and CL's peach lemonade. Excellent.
Had a few peaches in the house & decided to try this recipe before realizing it didn't actually use peaches! Found the peach nectar at the store, but also grilled a couple peaches to have on the side. I would rate this five stars but my grocer did not have any flank steaks and so I tried some other thin cut steak but it got a little overdone. I made the rub and sauce exactly as specified, except I didn't have bourbon & used Crown Royal instead. The rub was very good but the sauce was just excellent. A little time consuming for only a main dish of the meal, but worth it! I will definitely try this again with a different cut of meat.
We made this entire menu for our 20th wedding Anniversary & this dish had our highest expectations & delivered our lowest. We thought both the sauce & the rub were kinda weak. Maybe because the chicken was soooooo good. However, we marinated more meat than we needed last nite & have a steak leftover to cook tonite, we'll see if it's better on it' s own.
