Grilled Buffalo Rib Eyes With Canadian Campfire Beans

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 (10-ounce) buffalo rib-eye steaks
  • 1/2 cup Canadian whiskey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons Essence, recipe follows
  • Cowboy Baked Beans


  • In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the Essence. Pour into the bag with the steaks and seal the bag. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 to 4 hours, turning the bag occasionally to coat the meat evenly.
  • Preheat a grill.
  • Remove the steaks from the bag and pat dry. Discard the marinade. Season each steak with 1 teaspoon of Essence and grill until medium-rare, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and immediately serve with the Cowboy Baked Beans.
