Nice creole-inspired sauce with a unique coffee twist. Note: you can use an equal amount of prepared coffee (I use espresso) rather than the water and instant coffee.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine water, bourbon, sugar, bouillon, and instant coffee.

  4. Transfer steaks to a platter, cover and keep warm.
  5. Add bourbon mixture to pan (use the pan used for the steaks, if possible).
  6. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture has reduced to 1/4 cup (about 3 minutes).
  7. Serve sauce over beef.
  8. Sprinkle with parsley.
