Cherry Bourbon Flank Steak

Cherry Bourbon Flank Steak

1/4 cup Cherry Balsamic*
1/4 cup cherry juice**
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
Halved, pitted cherries for serving

Mix your liquids in a bowl with the salt and pepper. Stir well.

Set your oven to broil. Place your steak in an oven proof casserole dish. Pour your marinade over it and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Once it has marinaded, place the dish in the oven on the top rack near the top of your oven. Cook for at least 5 minutes per side.

Cool slightly and serve sliced thinly and against the grain with some of the pan sauce and some fresh cherries.

*Cherry Balsamic is available in limited quantities in store or by phone only.

**Cherry juice is becoming more popular in stores for it's heath benefits. I like it for the taste. If you can't find 100% cherry juice, you can use the pomegranate/cherry juice blends they sell in the vegetable sections of your grocery store.

This recipe would also work with cranberry juice. But then, swap out the Cherry Balsamic for some Cranberry and fresh cranberries for the cherries. In which case, it should be named, Cranberry Bourbon Flank Steak.
