Yes… I have a Whiskey!
I am so lucky to be able to pair up with the guys from Nashville Barrel Company & J Squared Barrels to have this exclusive Rye Whiskey that I picked. This specific bottle of whiskey has a pleasant sweet nose with a palate of apples and a nice kick of spice right at the end. I felt like it was a great representation of Over The Fire Cooking, and an awesome whiskey to try this Umami Whiskey Marinated Hanger Steaks with Fries.
What is Umami?
For those that do not know, umami is one of the five flavor profiles that is sometimes forgotten. It is the savory note that we mostly get with meat, broths, soy sauce and now these Hanger Steaks.
But, how did we achieve this flavor?
I was able to snag some Porcini and King mushroom powder that gives off intense umami flavor. Mix that with some soy sauce, fish sauce, dijon mustard and garlic for an amazing marinade on these Umami Whiskey Marinated Hanger Steaks. Even with all of that, I wanted a spicy sweet kick as well.
That is where the new Single Barrel Rye Whiskey came into effect.
How we cook these Umami Whiskey Marinated Hanger Steaks with Fries
The hanger steak firstly marinated overnight. Hanger is a cut of meat that works well with marinades especially since we needed to get these intense umami flavors. Preheated our fire to a medium high heat and then started frying out fries.
The fries only take a short while to cook, so we decided to grill the steaks at the same time. Once the fries and the steaks were done, we let the steak rest. Next, we tossed the fries in a garlic parmesan mixture. Served the Umami Whiskey Marinated Hangers Steaks with Fries and called it a day. Make sure to grab my limited edition Single Barrel Rye Whiskey now!
Umami Whiskey Marinated Hanger Steaks
- 2 Hanger Steaks silver skin removed
- 4 oz of my Single Barrel Rye Whiskey
- 2 tbsp of Soy Sauce
- 1.5 tbsp of Fish Sauce
- 1.5 tbsp of Spicy Dijon Mustard
- 2 tsp of Porcini Mushroom Powder
- 2 tsp of King Mushroom Powder
- 1.5 tsp of Minced Garlic
- 1.5 tsp of Dried Onion
- 1 tsp of Dried Thyme
- 1 tsp of Cayenne
- 2 tsp of Black Pepper
- 2 tsp of Sea Salt
- 2 cups of Russet Potatoes cut into fries
- 2 tsp of Kosher Salt
- 1 tsp of Black Pepper
- 1 tsp of Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp of Cayenne
- 1 tbsp of Grated Parmesan
- 1 tbsp of Parsley finely chopped
- 2 quarts of Frying Oil
- Mix together all the ingredients for the marinade. Add the hanger steaks into a food safe bag or bowl and pour the marinade over them. Mix together thoroughly until they are evenly coated. Let marinate overnight or for at least 3 hours.
- Preheat your grill to a medium-high temperature for direct cooking (around 375F). Add a dutch oven or large cast iron skillet with the frying oil to preheat until the oil reaches 325F.
- Add your fries to the oil and cook for about 6-10 minutes depending on the level of crispiness you desire. As the fries cook, add your steaks on to the grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side or until they reach 117F for medium rare. Once the fries are done, pull them off and pat them dry. Once the steak is done, pull it off and let it rest for 5-7 minutes.
- After the fries have been pat drying, add them to a bowl along with the salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne, grated parmesan and parsley. Toss them until they are evenly coated.
- Once the steak is rested, slice it against the grain and serve with the fries. Enjoy!
