Bourbon Butter Steak Sauce
1 T salted butter
1 1/2 ounces bourbon, divided
3 heavy shakes (dashes) Worcestershire sauce
2 T water (optional)
1. After you've cooked your steaks, remove them from the pan, turn off the heat and let the residual heat make the sauce. Add the butter to the pan.
2. You've worked hard today and now you're even making dinner! Drink half the bourbon. Pour the other half into the pan.
|One for me, one for the pan. The Law of Alcoholic Equation.|
4. If you're using a cast-iron pan you may need to add some water to compensate for evaporation. A pan that doesn't retain so much heat, like a non-stick or a steel pan, won't stay as hot for as long.
The only catch is to be sure and remember you've made steak sauce before you get half-way through your steak. Maybe I should drink wine or drink bourbon while cooking, not both.
