This recipe is from Bunky Cooks. Serve with Champs, and rapini for a wonderful Irish steak dinner. 8/27/12 Edited to 1/2 the irish whiskey.
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 medium shallots, chopped
- 3 ounces white mushrooms, sliced
- 2 (8 ounce) filet of beef
- freshly ground coarse black pepper
- 2 tablespoons Irish whiskey
- 3⁄4 cup half-and-half
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Have filets at room temperature. Sprinkle with black pepper.
- 2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat in an ovenproof skillet. Saute shallots for a minute or two, then add the mushrooms. Continue cooking until the mushrooms are slightly brown and the shallots are soft. Remove and set aside.
- 3. Turn the heat up in the pan. Saute the steaks quickly on both sides (this should take between 2-5 minutes each side).
- The steaks should be nicely seared.
- Put them in the oven for 5-10 minutes to finish, depending upon the thickness of the steaks. Take them out when the internal temp reaches how well done you like your steaks.
- Remove the steaks from the oven and put on a plate.
- 4. Melt the other tablespoon of butter in another pan over low heat. Add the steaks. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
- Pour the whiskey over the steaks and ignite!
- When the flames die down, turn the steaks over for about 30 seconds. Remove and tent the steaks on a warm plate.
- 5. Add the shallots and mushrooms back to the pan with the whiskey and slowly add half and half. Turn up the temperature a bit.
- Add Worcestershire sauce and salt to taste. Stir and cook a few minutes to thicken sauce and pour over steaks.
Good steak and sauce. I did feel that the Irish Whiskey dominated the flavor a bit too much, so would use less next time. Thanks Lynn for a nice dinner. Made for ZWT8 - Family Picks.
