Bourbon Whisky Cream and Mushroom Sauce

Wednesday, 12 May 2010
I was very kindly sent a bottle of 'Four Roses' Yellow label Bourbon Whiskey and so I made a really nice sauce with it - no not the whole bottle!

About Four Roses:
Four Roses is the only bourbon distillery in the world to combine 5 yeast strains with 2 separate mash bills to produce their 10 distinct bourbon recipes, each with a unique character, spiciness and rich fruit flavour.
All 10 of the recipes are gently aged, undisturbed in new white oak barrels that sit within one of a kind single storey rack warehouses, this process enables an unrivaled consistency to the Four Roses Yellow Label taste.

Now, your imagination is needed as my pictures didn't turn out too good so I couldn't post one.
Imagine a creamy, mushroomy sauce with a nice background taste of Bourbon Whiskey.  

**If you want to serve with steak then I'd use a Beef stock cube instead of chicken.

Makes enough to serve 4
2 Portobello mushrooms - chopped
a glug of oil
a knob of butter
100ml Four Roses Bourbon Yellow Label Whiskey
300ml chicken or beef stock - made from a Knorr stock cube
100ml double cream
a splash of Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Muscovado sugar
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 

How to do it:
In a frying pan heat the oil and butter till nice and hot, throw in the mushrooms moving them about with a wooden spoon. When they're nicely coloured remove and set aside.  In a small saucepan put in the hot stock and the Whiskey. Boil for about 3 minutes.  Sir in the cream and add a shake of Worcestershire sauce then stir in the sugar.  Season with a little salt and some black pepper and have a taste.  Simmer for about 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Once it has throw in the cooked mushrooms and heat through.  Serve immediately with chicken or with a nice steak.


  1. This sounds absolutely divine. We have a few bottles of "cooking" whisky, i.e., blended, non-single malts, that would go perfectly with this recipe.

  2. mmmm this does sound delicious. This sounds like my kind of drink!

  3. Sounds good. I'm also thinking of chocolate and whisky sauce for ice cream? Must be the time of day....


Thanks for taking the time to comment - much appreciated.
