These Bacon Bourbon Glazed Steaks have a decadent sauce with the unmistakable flavors of bacon and bourbon.

I’m a steak girl through and through. It’s my meal of choice for every birthday or special event. For my last meal on this earth I would choose a big, juice steak.
Usually, I prefer my steaks prepared very simply — salt, pepper and a little butter to finish it off. I really like to let the flavor the steak shine.
However, the other night I was feeling adventurous so I thought I would try something new.
I started by cooking several slices of bacon in this Lodge Cast Iron skillet. Seriously, folks, if you have never made bacon in a cast iron pan, you don’t know what you’re missing. Bacon takes on a whole new level of crispy, melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness when it’s cooked in a cast iron skillet. And, Lodge cast iron is the best in the industry.
Once the bacon crisped up, I added the steaks and pan seared them in some of the bacon fat. Once they had a nice crust on each side, I moved the steaks to the oven to finish cooking.
Meanwhile, I started the glaze. In a separate pot, I heated the bourbon and burned off the alcohol. The smell of the bourbon was glorious. It’s so rich and distinct.
Once the steaks were done, I removed them to a plate, covered them with foil and let them rest.
In the same skillet the steaks were in, I finished the sauce. Then I added the steaks back into the skillet and let them bathe in the decadent sauce.
The result was a perfectly cooked steak with a shimmery coating of distinctly flavored bacon bourbon sauce. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
