Grilled Steak with Bourbon Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by heather in Ont

A gourmet meal that will have your friends talking. The herbs and bourbon sauce give this steak a wonderful flavour. I barbequed my steak but the recipe tells you to cook in the oven. If you are using dried herbs the prep time is considerably less. I like to use fresh herbs to bring out the flavour. Serve this with garlic and paramasen mashed potatoes and a green salad. I found this gem in a Food and Drink Magazine the local liquor store gives out.

Turned out very well but an amateur cook would have been lost. I used filets instead of T-Bones and they worked fine--reduced cooking time to 5 minutes in oven. Step 5--cannot reduce stock that much in 20 minutes. No temperature for oven--I used 400. Step7--add steaks to what? I put them in the sauce for about 45 seconds each then seared them in iron skillet for 1 minute then put them on 400 oven for 5 minutes--perfect! Used sauce for dipping as opposed to drizzling. Good recipe--would give it an 8. Thanks.
