Vodka Marinated Steak
500 g steak or a prime rib grilling steak
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
3 tb parsley, chopped
1 tsp dried oregano (next time I want to try rosemary)
3 garlic cloves, chopped
100 ml vodka
50 ml olive oil
150 ml beef broth
1 shot vodka
2 tb butter
Place the steak in a plastic bag and add the salt and olive oil. Squish everything all around. Let sit at least 3 hours (best if left 2-3 days in the fridge). Let the steak sit on the counter for an hour before cooking.
Remove the steak from the bag, reserving the marinade.
Heat your grill, then grill the steak to your liking.
Remove from the heat and let the steak rest.
Just before the steak has finished cooking start your sauce.
Strain all the solids out of the marinade.
Pour the marinade into a measuring cup and add water to make 150 ml (about 2/3 cup). Pour into a small pan over high heat. Bring to a simmer. Add the vodka and beef broth and boil until reduced by about half. Break the butter up into pieces and stir into the sauce until melted. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
Slice the steak, place on a platter and drizzle with some of the sauce. Pass the remaining sauce separately at the table.
