Steak With a Chive & Whiskey Cream Sauce

This was in an outdoor kitchen cookbook I picked up in a thrift shop. I don't really like whiskey in drinks but it's fabulous in this!

Loved it! I share your dislike of whiskey in drinks, but in this sauce it was perfect. I chives and the hint of mustard really make this dish. I'm kicking myself now for not taking a picture, because the steaks looked so nice with the sauce and fresh ground pepper. Since it was dark outside, I pan-fried the steaks in a separate pan, but first I cut off some fat and a strip of steak to fry in butter in the sauce pan for this sauce. Thanks for posting Mandy!

Neither my husband or myself cared for this at all. Something is just not "right" with the ingredients or the porpotions.

I did not really care for this, but my husband said it was just ok. For some reason it seemed to have a "fishy" taste to it and I can't think of why. The only thing I did different was to add some sauteed mushrooms to it. I guess it was just nothing like we expected. Sorry.
