  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2 or 3 pounds of carrots, peeled and cut into equal-sized pieces
  • ½ to 1 tsp of fine salt, or to taste
  • ½ cup of bourbon, or any kind of whiskey
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste
  • Fresh thyme leaves, to garnish, optional


Step 1

Wash and peel the carrots, then trim off the top and bottom ends, and cut them into bite-sized pieces (cut thickly on the smaller end, then cut thinly on the larger end). Place a skillet pan on a stove over medium-high heat, then add the butter, and allow it to melt. Once foamy and melted, add the carrots and spread them in a single layer, then season them with some salt to taste, and let them cook for about 5 to 6 minutes. Toss and flip the carrots, then let them cook for another 5 to 6 minutes, and then reduce the heat to medium-low.

Step 2

Now, carefully add the bourbon, then cook them for about 2 to 3 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated, and pour in the brown sugar. Mix them all together until well combined, then let them simmer for about 5 minutes or until tender, and then raise the heat to medium-high to reduce the sauce. Once cooked to desired doneness, add some cayenne and black pepper to taste, then give them a good toss, and turn off the heat. Transfer them to a serving plate, then garnish with thyme, and serve. Enjoy!
