Steak and Whisky Recipe

This is a recipe which combines the two great food and drink loves. Scotch beef is of course best if you can obtain it and the finest whisky, you can try either a blend or a good malt, to give it that special flavour.!!

Steak in Whisky Sauce

4 Steaks - rump, sirloin or fillet (according to personal preference)
2 oz Butter
1 small finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons of worcestershire sauce
1 oz mushrooms (finely chopped)
6 tablespoons of whisky

Season the steaks with a little salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a frying pan and fry the steaks until cooked through(both sides), according to personal taste. Set aside and keep warm.

Fry the onion and mushrooms in the steak juice for about 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat SLIGHTLY and add the whisky and worcestershire sauce (pan juices may "spit" at this point).

Return the steaks to the heat and bring the sauce to the boil. Add further seasoning if required.

Serve warm/hot with a potato dish of your choice (boiled new potatoes would be customary)

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
