Balsamic Whiskey Marinade:

- 1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
- 1/3 cup of Olive Oil
- 2 tbs cracked pepper (5-7 cracks)
- 1 pinch of Sage
- 1 tbs sea salt (2-3 cracks)
While the steaks are marinating - start prepping the sides. We used the same marinade on our green beans.
Bacon Shiitake Green Beans:
- Whole green beans (fresh or freezer isle)
- Shiitake Mushrooms
- 4 strips of bacon
- Balsamic Whiskey Marinade
- 1/2 Medium Yellow Onion
Marinate the green beans and shiitake mushrooms in the Balsamic Whiskey Marinade (see above for recipe) for about an hour. Sautee onions and bacon in cast iron skillet while everything is marinating.
- 4 red potatoes
- A pinch of rosemary, sage, salt, pepper
- Drizzle of olive oil
While onions and bacon is going, start boiling the water for your potatoes. Cook potatoes til cooked. Place potatoes on baking sheet and dice or smash them lightly. Drizzle ingredients over the potatoes and stick in the over for 45 minutes at 355 degrees. Go ahead and stick your rolls in there with them.
Grill or cook steaks in a iron cast skillet until they are at the temperature you prefer. We cooked our's medium rare.
Place everything on a plate and sprinkle the green beans with a touch of goat cheese and you are all set for a delicious meal!
