Goodnight Trail Cook, TX 1861. Charlie was a cook for the Goodnight Outfit. He was bad to drink whiskey. One day he was drinking when he saw the boss coming and he emptied a glass of whiskey into the steak sauce he was cooking. He didn't have time to make more steak sauce, so he served it with the whiskey in it. All the hands and the boss thought it was good, so he made it this way all the time. From the Texas Longhorn Cookbook.
