Very good, this recipe turned out a very flavorful and tender steak. I would recommend removing the onions after caramelizing a bit, before adding the steak to the pan. My steaks took about 8 minutes total and by then the onions were blackening. Next time I'll add a touch of cream to the whiskey sauce and simmer a bit. Don't be afraid of the whiskey leaving too strong a flavor, it doesn't!
the taste was alright. i definatly would change up the recipe next time and make sure the steaks are not frozen and fresh.
This steak turned out delicious. I originally made it from the UK Allrecipes site. It is the same recipe and submitter. I tend to broil or grill steak as I have not had much success with steak on the stove top. This worked well, for me, though. I used N.Y. strip. Mine, I realized, were kind of on the thin side so I halved the other ingredients. I used butter with canola oil to make the butter/oil measurements quicker. I cooked the onions on medium until I just noticed some light browning. The original recipe did not indicate, but I removed the onions before adding the meat with a slotted spoon. I started the meat on medium, but had to turn it up to about 6.5 to finish browning. I was worried that the whiskey would be too strong, because I don't care for it. However, it more or less just tenderized it. I poured it directly over the steak and added about 1-2 more minutes to the steak. I did not cook the caramelized onions in the whiskey either. I enjoyed my steak. ty
This was really yummy! I used two ribeyes and served this with Smoked Bacon and Irish Cheese Mash. Flambe them if you can, it helps soften the whiskey flavor. Thank you!!
I have been doing a similar recipe for many years, and it is always popular. Try pouring the whiskey into a shallow dish, tray or plate and soak the steak for a couple of minutes, then turn over and soak again before cooking it. After the steak is cooked to taste, remove from pan and cover with foil. Next add a knob of butter and cook the onion (or chopped green onion). When the onion has begun to colour, add the whiskey from the dish to deglaze the pan and stir well, then add about a quarter cup of thick cream, turn up the heat and reduce till thickened. Serve on top of the steak. - Steak with whiskey cream sauce! Notes: Will also work with Bourbon, Dry Sherry, etc.
Big hit at our house. I used a big fat london broil which required a lot of extra cooking time.
Okay, this was a great recipe!!! My Hispanic son-in-law said he really liked Irish food, I served this with colcannon and a side veggie. What a great meal. Thanks for sharing this one with us.
My Iowa farm girl wife thought this was one of the best steaks we ever prepared, and she's pretty selective about her steak. I slivered the garlic clove and placed them into slits when i finished with the rubbing.
