Applebees Bourbon Street Steak

A few added ingredients make an ordinary steak taste like one of Applebees Bourbon Street Steak.


  • 1/2 cup bottled steak sauce - like A1 Sauce
  • 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of Chef Paul Prudhommes Cajun Spices
  • 4 beef rib, round, or chuck steaks (10 ounces each)


Combine all the ingredients except the steaks in a baking dish or resalable plastic storage bag; mix well. Add the steaks; cover (or seal) and refrigerate for 2 hours, or overnight. Preheat the

grill to medium-high heat. Grill the steaks for 12 to 15 minutes, or until desired doneness, turning them over halfway through the grilling.

    Thanks a lot for the steak recipe. Gotta know how to cook steak even with a good recipe like this. Example: leave steak out to warm about 30 min. before grilling,and there’s more to learn. Appreciate your recipe.

    Disappointing at best.

  • Ray Copeland

    This recipe is not even a resembelance of the Bourban Street steak at Applebee’s. It was mediocre at best.

  • Joan

    Great recipe and the steak was delish! Next I will try it on chicken.

  • Bill

    Just to clarify my earlier comment, the following is verbatim from Applebee’s Menu.
    “Bourbon Street Steak
    A juicy, tender steak jazzed up with Cajun spices and served with sautéed onions & mushrooms and fried red potatoes.”
    Now all we have to do is find out what gois into those Cajun Spices. Anybody got any good suggestions? Thanks.

      I use Chef Paul Prudhommes Blackened Refish Magic for the Cajun kick.

    THIS IS NOT Applebee’s Bourbon St. Steak. This recipe just calls for putting bourbon in the steak. Applebee’s Bourbon St Steak refers to Bourbon Street in New Orleans and the steak is Cajun flavored with spicy and hot seasonings and spices and sauces like you wouild normally find in that area. ie; HOT PEPPERS etc;

  • Closet Cook

    “Bottled Steak Sauce” is very generic and open-ended. Worcestershire, Heinz 57, and A-1 are examples of steak sauces but each has completely different flavor/taste. As a guide, which sauce is preferred or used in this recipe?

    • Stephanie

      I would suggest simple “generic” steak sauce. I would lean toward’s A-1, but going to that expense isn’t necessary.

    Trying to find a receipe for Red Lobsters Cheddar Baked Biscuits. Also there is chicken house called Belgrades and their Hot Sauce is so god and cannot find the receipe for it.
