COOKING WITH WHISKEY
SMOKED STEAK WITH WHISKEY
Meat and Fish Hot Smoked Glaze
2-1/2 tablespoon Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Chipotle pepper (add's a spicy hot smoked taste.)
1 tablespoon Jack Daniel's Whiskey
Makes enough for 4 steaks
Brush on meat or fish after it is cooked; place under boiler for 2 minutes. Use Whiskey for Marinating food but not longer then 30 minutes for meat and fish.
To make your own standard marinade, mix a few spoonfuls of whiskey with lemon or lime juice, different oils, Worcestershire or Teriyaki sauce and spices.
Use 1 or 2 tablespoons of Whiskey in the following:
Shellfish: Add crushed garlic and ginger, chopped lemongrass, chives, pimento, lemon juice, sesame oil
Fish: Make a lighter marinade using lemon juice, olive oil, herbs.
Lamb: Add honey, hazelnut oil, balsamic vinegar, spices.
Duck: Add orange juice, marmalade, spices.
Beef: Add Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, onions, spices.
Fruits: Use with pears or apples in, dried fruit like raisins, dates, figs, or apricots. They will better absorb whiskey if you warm them with a little water for 30 seconds in a microwave before marinating.
Mix Whiskey in melted chocolate for Candy.
*Use Brandy in moderation. Unlike wine, Brandy has a prominent flavor and the flavor should never overpower the food. Brandy and Cognac is also added to a pan for setting aflame beef dishes like
