Shallot and Bourbon Cream Sauce for Steak

You can't beat a nice juicy steak and chips with all the trimmings including a lovely sauce to go with it. I usually make Stilton sauce although my husband prefers Roquefort sauce which is way too strong for me.

Shallot and Bourbon Cream Sauce with Steak

I must say I prefer this Shallots and Bourbon Cream Sauce.

Serves 2:
1 banana shallot - finely chopped
1 fat clove of garlic - finely chopped
a glug of oil
a knob of butter
100ml Four Roses Bourbon Yellow Label Whisky
300ml of 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

Method:
In a frying pan, heat the oil and the butter. Over a medium to low heat, cook the shallots and garlic until nice and soft but not coloured.

Now turn the heat off and leave while you make the sauce.

In a small saucepan put in the hot beef stock and the Whiskey. Boil until it has reduced by a half.

Turn the heat down and stir in the cream. Add a shake of Worcestershire sauce then stir in the sugar.

eason with a little salt and some black pepper and have a taste.

Simmer for about 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened a bit more; once it has, pour it into the pan of shallots and garlic and turn on the heat.

Now gently heat through, stirring all the while.

*If the sauce isn't as thick as you'd like then add some cornflour (dissolved in a very tiny amount of water) but better still use McDougalls thickening granules - marvellous stuff!
Serve immediately with a nice steak.
