Espresso-Bourbon Steaks With Mashed Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by DailyInspiration

A favorite recipe from National Cattlemen's Beef Association - The Beef Checkoff. We don't have steaks often, but this sounds so good that I might have to run out to the market for some tenderloins. I may also make this dish for my Christmas Eve dinner. This should "wow" my family and be a nice break from my traditional meal.

The potatoes are excellent! So simple but just perfect. The sauce seemed too bitter as written, so I added an extra 1/4 cup maple syrup and then it was great. Served the steak, potatoes and sauce with oven-roasted asparagus for a delicious meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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).
