Ready In:


  • 4 aberdeen angus rib eye steaks
  • 1 ounce butter
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons Scotch whisky
  • 1 teaspoon coarse grain mustard (I use 1 tablespoon)
  • 12 cup beef stock
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup double cream
  • 14 - 12 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste


  • Pan fry the steaks to desired 'doneness' and keep warm.
  • In a separate pan, melt the butter. Sauté the chopped shallot until soft.
  • Add the whisky to the pan and carefully set it alight.
  • When the flame goes out add the grain mustard, stock and mushrooms.
  • Add the cream and bring to the boil. Simmer gently until the sauce has reduced by half, stirring from time to time.
  • Add the chopped parsley just before serving.
  • Season well. Pour over steaks to serve.

"I love cooking for family and friends. I especially enjoy is like combining art and science to create something extraordinary. I am most known for making desserts like Recipe #336060. My pet peeve: when people sign-up to bring dessert to a pot-luck or dinner party and they bring something pre-made from the store. My friends and family now know to always let me bring the dessert. :) I enjoy traveling and believe that one of the best ways to experience a culture is through food. I have lived in Germany, Spain and Switzerland, and currently live in the US. My rating system: 5 stars - Excellent! Delicious! Could not be better...will make often. 4 stars - Very good! May tweak slightly. 3 stars - Good base recipe. Will need to tweak. 2 stars - Ok. Will keep looking.

    This was great! I've been wanting to try this recipe for a long time but the scotch intimidated me since neither my husband nor I like scotch. I wish I hadn't waited so long. The sauce was DELICIOUS. I used Dijon mustard instead of coarse grain mustard. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. (Well sorta exactly, I didn't use the parsley but other than THAT it was exactly heheheh). I served it with broccoli and pan fried potatoes with onions. Will definitely make again and again. Thanks for sharing.

    This was fantastic. At first, I thought Scotch would be a gamble since I was making this dish for my whole family (including 2 young kids). But it worked out well as the alcohol taste wasn't over powering but only gave the sauce a subtle boost. (And in the end, neither of my kids wanted the sauce anyway...go figure!) But it was a delightful sauce, which the mustard gave it a very delightful zest. I did cut the parsley to 1/8 cup though (as 1/4 cup seemed to much), and I thought that was perfect. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing your recipe, swissms. Made for "Please Review My Recipe" tag game.

    Well I absolutely loved this over my steak (the DH had his on the side and had a taste with some steak and considered it so so and then smothered his steak in b-b-q sauce I saw red but kept my mouth shut - couldn't believe it) but the DM and the DS enjoyed with their sausages. The only change I would make would to up the mushroom for the quantity of cream and maybe the mustard too. Thank you swissms for a great recipe.
