Dine In: Brandon’s Whiskey Marinated Steak with Grilled Avocado


Not too longBrandon's Whiskey Marinated Steak with Grilled Avocado ago, I had the privilege of having dinner with my boyfriend, the older of his two adult sons and his stepfather. One thing definitely stuck out from that night: like father, like son.

All three of them have larger-than-life personalities and a big sense of humor, and the gift of gab didn’t get watered down through the generations.

Brandon, a student at a local university, kept me laughing all night. When he ordered his meal, a steak, he asked for it with a side of avocado. I couldn’t believe how brilliant that was and why I’d never thought of it before. A velvety avocado would be the perfect accompaniment to a rich, juicy steak.

I experimented with a few versions of this and ended up with a delicious recipe that pays homage to Brandon. Thank you for the inspiration!

Brandon’s Whiskey Marinated Steak with Grilled Avocado

Ingredients:
1 (16 to 20 oz) rib-eye steak
2 avocados
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

Marinade:
2 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp garlic, minced
2 Tbsp steak sauce
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp Louisiana hot sauce
4 to 5 oz whiskey

Directions:
Combine marinade ingredients and whisk well. Place steak in marinade; refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.
Prepare grill to high heat.

Remove steak from marinade; let excess drip off. Sear steak over high heat on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Lower heat to medium and complete cooking until steak has reached desired doneness, preferably medium-rare to medium.

While steak is cooking, slice avocado in half and remove pit. Scoop out flesh, leaving it intact. Brush with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. *Note, if avocado is not firm enough, leave in peel and remove after grilling.

Remove steak to platter to rest. Place avocado, cut side down, onto grill and leave for 2-3 minutes until grill marks appear. Carefully flip avocado and grill another 2-3 minutes.

Slice steak across the grain; serve immediately with avocado.
