How to Make Espresso-Bourbon Steaks with Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all sauce ingredients, except pepper, in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 12-15 minutes or until sauce is thickened and reduced by about half, stirring occasionally. Stir in pepper. Keep warm.
  2. Prepare mashed potatoes by boiling potatoes in water with 1 teaspoons salt. Cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook 4-5 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain. Combine potatoes, 2 tablespoons butter, salt and pepper. Beat until mashed and smooth.
  3. Meanwhile, press coarsely cracked pepper on both sides of steaks. Place steaks on grill over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, 13-15 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning once.
  4. Evenly divide sauce onto 4 plates. Place steak on top of sauce. Serve with Mashed Sweet Potatoes and green beans (if desired).
