Whiskey Glazed Flat Iron Steaks and Grilled Potatoes For Father’s Day

The Perfect Father’s Day Dinner! The flat iron steak is the second most tender cut of beef, after the petite filet mignon. A true flat iron is cut horizontally just above and below that tough muscle (rather than vertically through it) so the muscle can be discarded and all that is left is very flavorful and tender beef.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whiskey, such as Jack Daniels
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • Four 8-ounce flat iron steaks or filet mignon steaks
  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

Directions

Preheat a grill on medium-high heat. Whisk together the whiskey, brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the oil and the garlic. Add the steaks, turn a few times to coat with the marinade and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, quarter each potato lengthwise to form wedges and put in a medium pot. Cover with cold water to cover by 1-inch and add salt until the water tastes like sea water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until tender (but not falling apart), about 15 minutes. Drain well. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

Ginger Ale-Can Chicken

It is hard to get simpler, or more Southern, than Can Chicken. For this recipe, two whole chickens are marinated in a mixture that includes liquid steak seasoning, rosemary, garlic, and pepper. The chickens then get oven-baked vertically over opened cans of ginger ale until they are perfectly roasted. The secret is that in the hot oven the ginger ale steams, keeping the chicken moist. This easy roasting method also allows fat to drip through and around the chickens, giving them a rich flavor and a beautiful golden-brown color. This will taste great on the table—fresh and hot, it would certainly give “canned chicken” a whole new meaning.

Ginger Ale Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 (3-lb.) whole chickens
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup liquid steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (12-oz.) cans ginger ale
  • Garnishes: red leaf lettuce, green grapes, rosemary sprigs
