    Petdrwife's Note:

    If the weather is lousy outside, then pan-frying a thick porterhouse steak right in the kitchen is a great way to go. The key to success is a big cast iron skillet. It'll cause a good bit of smoke in the kitchen, but it's worth it. Let the cooked steaks rest on a board while you make the special Lynchburg pan sauce. This recipe is from Jack Daniel's website and is made and served at Miss Mary Bobo's.

      I think this would have turned out better if I my steaks were thicker. It was really hard to gauge how long I should cook them because they were a bit thinner than the recipe called for. The sauce also got a bit overcooked, it turned really quickly and thus the flavor wasn't as nice as it could have been. Also there wasn't much there, just enough to give the steaks a coating. I also only had scotch whiskey on hand. Overall I think this is probably a great recipe especially since it comes from Jack Daniel website but I just didn't get it right my first try :-)
