Maple Bacon Jam


  1. Place the bacon in the freezer and freeze it 75% of the way. It will be much easier to dice that way. Fine dice the bacon and place it in a larger skillet on medium flame.
  2. Render the bacon until nearly crispy. Drain half the fat. Add the onion, garlic and thyme. Cook until the onions are translucent.
  3. Turn down the flame and add the syrup. Cook on low while stirring frequently until you have a thick, gooey mess. Add the cracked pepper to taste. Hold at room temp. for topping on Flat Iron steaks.
  4. Grill the Double Red Provisions flat iron steak to desire doneness. Approximately 4 minutes per side. When done, allow to sit for 3-4 minutes so the juices set. Slice on a bias against the grain, top with maple bacon jam and serve with your choice of sides.
