Chuck Steak with Tomato, Bacon and Balsamic Relish
- 1 cup of bacon diced
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 Lone Mountain Wagyu Chuck Steaks
- kosher salt to season
- fresh cracked black pepper
- 2 tablespoons grape-seed oil
- fresh torn basil to garnish
In a heavy duty cast iron skillet, over medium-high heat, render bacon stirring occasionally for 10-12 minutes until nice and crispy. Scoop bacon out from skillet, reserve and leave 1 tablespoon of fat.
Raise the heat back up to medium-high and add the tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes are lightly charred and about to burst, 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic, reserved bacon, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, black pepper and a salt. Stir and reduce for 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat, place in a container and keep warm.
Let steaks come to room temperature before cooking. Season both sides with salt and black pepper. Heat cast iron skillet over over high heat just until smoking. Add oil and then carefully add steak. Cook for 3 minutes on 1 side undisturbed and then 1-1 1/2 minutes on the other. Repeat with other steak.
Slice steak against the grain and serve with the warm tomato, bacon and balsamic relish and fresh torn basil.
Depending on desired doneness, steaks may need to cook for longer period. Can be braised until tender.
