  • 4 3/4 inch NY Strip Steaks
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 can beef consommé
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoons crushed peppercorns
  • grilled onions if desired
  • mashed potatoes


  • Remove steaks from fridge and sit out on counter 30 minutes to 1 hour. You want it to be loosey goosey. Sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper and press it into the meat.
  • Preheat large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Place oil in pan, swirl around, then add in the steaks. Cook 3-4 minutes*, then turn. Cook again for another 3-4 minutes, then remove from the pan and cover with foil.
  • Turn off heat and pour bourbon into the hot pan. Let the heat of the hot pan cook off the alcohol for 2-3 minutes, then light the pan using a longer lighter {12"} to cook off remaining alcohol. Be smart, people! I am not liable for any homes that burn to the ground because of this recipe, PS.
  • Turn pan back on the heat, stir in beef consommé, cream and peppercorns. Simmer gently for 2-3 minutes to thicken slightly. Taste and add in more salt if needed.
  • Place steak on plates, top with grilled onions and sauce. Serve.
