What's this?

Satiate your sweet and salty craving by topping a smoky medium-well steak with our zesty bacon sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 Whole New York strip steaks

  • To Taste Traeger Prime Rib Rub

  • 1/2 Pound Bacon, Cut Into Small Pieces

  • 1 Small sweet onion

  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar

  • 3 Tablespoon Strong Brewed Coffee

  • 1/4 Cup apple juice

  • 1/2 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • As Needed extra-virgin olive oil

Steps

  • 1

    Remove steaks from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to cooking, to allow to ocme to room temperature. Season steaks on both sides with Traeger Prime Rib Rub.
  • 2

    When ready to cook, start your Traeger at 350 degrees F and allow to preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 3

    Put the chopped bacon in a cast iron pan and place on the hot grill grate. Cook the bacon for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the fat has rendered.
  • 4

    Remove the bacon from the pan and drain out all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease from the pan.
  • 5

    Add the onions into the cast iron pan and cook on the Traeger for about 10 minutes, or until the onions have softened. Next add brown sugar; cook for about 15 to 20 minutes more to allow the onions to caramelize.
  • 6

    Add in the coffee, apple juice or water, and cooked bacon and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions really thick and "jammy" - about 20 more minutes.
  • 7

    Stir in the balsamic vinegar and spoon into a bowl and set aside. (Keep the leftover bacon-onion jam in the fridge. This bacon-onion jam really tastes best at room temperature so always let it come to room temp before enjoying.)
  • 8

    Turn the heat on the Traeger up to High and preheat for 10 to 15 minutes with the lid closed.
  • 9

    Lightly drizzle the steaks with olive oil and cook them on the Traeger for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, for medium-rare, or until they reach your desired doneness
  • 10

    After they're done, remove them from the grill and let rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.

    Top each steak with the bacon-onion jam and you've got some serious money right there. Enjoy!
