My husband is not a sauce person but I made the whiskey cream sauce anyway because it looked rather interesting and tasty. I am not a whiskey drinker so I had to go buy it and my husband had to explain to me the differences in it all. It was a funny sight - even the clerk laughed at me.
While it cooked the entire time I said "this stinks" and my husband laughed.
I cooked (well he cooked) the steaks on the grill rather than in the pan because I won't give up the charcoal flavor. Especially while I was thinking this sauce is not going to be my thing.
Then...Then I tasted it. Then I put it on my steak and ate some more. Then my husband tasted it then put it on his steak and ate. I can not tell you how WOW'd I was that he ate it. And liked it!!!
This is not something I will make often but its an interesting flavor that I enjoyed.
**I cut the recipe in half (as usual) and it was plenty for 2 steaks!
