Raspberry Bourbon Sloppy Johnnies

I wanted a nice sliced steak Sloppy Johnny tonight so I decided do a spin off of my Blueberry Sloppy Joe sandwich.









Sub Rolls
Cheese if desired, we used Havarti


2lbs steak
1-2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil
bourbon

Sauce:
1 TB olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped fine
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup bourbon
1 TB molasses
1 TB brown sugar
1 tsp smoked paprika

salt and pepper to taste

12 oz fresh or frozen raspberries, divided (do not thaw if using frozen)




Steak:
Chop the garlic clove fine and rub it over the steak on both sides. Sprinkle both sides with  salt and pepper.
Drizzle it with a healthy dose of olive oil and a sprinkling of bourbon and let stand at room temp for 30 mins.







Grill or broil the steak for 4-6 minutes per side, until medium rare(you can cook shorter or longer if you like)

Let it rest for a few minutes, then slice it thin.











Sauce:
In a deep pan heat oil over medium high heat, add onion, garlic and jalapeño, cook until tender and fragrant.









Add the remaining sauce ingredients except raspberries. Stir well and bring to a low boil.










Add sliced steak and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.


Add all but 1/2 cup raspberries, cover and simmer 10-15 minutes more.












Remove lid and simmer uncovered until the sauce thickens. 










Spoon into sliced rolls, top with cheese and run under the broiler to melt it all together










 Enjoy!
