Scottish Beef in Whisky Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Millereg

This quick-cooking dish requires prime meat. The whisky liqueur will reduce to a sweet glistening glaze. The creamy sauce has a delicious boozy flavour.

I was pretty disappointed with this overall. It ended up tasting like, well, meat. Was it the cut of beef? My cooking skills? Who knows? Everyone ate it, but I was encouraged not to make it again. I was left with the impression that I had just wasted good Scotch (& good meat).
