Gaelic Steak Flambe

Recipe by Lavender Lynn
READY IN: 50mins




  • 1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Have filets at room temperature. Sprinkle with black pepper.
  • 2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat in an ovenproof skillet. Saute shallots for a minute or two, then add the mushrooms. Continue cooking until the mushrooms are slightly brown and the shallots are soft. Remove and set aside.
  • 3. Turn the heat up in the pan. Saute the steaks quickly on both sides (this should take between 2-5 minutes each side).
  • The steaks should be nicely seared.
  • Put them in the oven for 5-10 minutes to finish, depending upon the thickness of the steaks. Take them out when the internal temp reaches how well done you like your steaks.
  • Remove the steaks from the oven and put on a plate.
  • 4. Melt the other tablespoon of butter in another pan over low heat. Add the steaks. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  • Pour the whiskey over the steaks and ignite!
  • When the flames die down, turn the steaks over for about 30 seconds. Remove and tent the steaks on a warm plate.
  • 5. Add the shallots and mushrooms back to the pan with the whiskey and slowly add half and half. Turn up the temperature a bit.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce and salt to taste. Stir and cook a few minutes to thicken sauce and pour over steaks.
