Apple-Bourbon Steak Sauce

Apple-Bourbon Steak Sauce
(3½-4 cups)


2 tbsp. Olive Oil
1 medium Vidalia Onion, chopped
1 medium Granny Smith Apple, peeled, cored and chopped
½ tsp. Kosher Salt
2/3 cup Raisins
1 cup Bourbon
1/3 cup Molasses
¼ cup Brown Sugar
3 tbsp. Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp. Ketchup
1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes


Sauté onions in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes.  Next, add the apple, salt and continue cooking another 5 minutes.  Now add the raisins and bourbon.  Bring mixture to a simmer and reduce liquid by half (about 10 minutes).  Turn heat down to medium and remaining ingredients.  Continue to simmer another 2 minutes.  Taste and adjust with salt and vinegar if needed.  Remove from heat and let cool.  Using a blender, puree the mixture until smooth and use on grilled steaks or refrigerate until needed.

Note:               Try using Irish whisky, Scotch or rum for a slightly different taste profile.
