Steak Ingredients:
  • 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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Once the steak is rested, slice it against the grain and serve with the fries. Enjoy!
