Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, roughly chopped
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 6 strip steaks (8 to 10 ounces each)

Method

Step 1

Make the sauce: Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic, cumin and coriander. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallot softens, about 3 minutes.

Step 2

Add the bourbon and cook until reduced by about half, about 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup water, the blueberries, blackberries, ketchup, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, the vinegar, soy sauce, chipotle, thyme sprigs, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally; cook until thickened, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter. Season with salt and pepper; add the remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar if the sauce is too tart.

Step 3

Meanwhile, preheat a grill to medium high. Oil the grill grates. Pat the steaks dry and season with salt and pepper. Grill until marked, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer to a plate and let rest 10 minutes.

Step 4

Pour any juices from the plate of steak into the sauce; loosen with water if needed. Serve the steak with the sauce.
