    Great sauce recipe for steaks
    Yeild: a little over 1 quart

    Ingredients:

    Shallots minced 1/2 cup
    Black peppercorns cracked 1/2 cup
    Thyme 1/2 teaspoon
    Jack Daniels Whiskey 1/2 cup
    Red wine vinegar 1/4 cup

    Vegetable oil 1 tablespoon
    yellow onion diced 1 cup
    carrots diced 1/2 cup
    celery diced 1/2 cup
    tomato paste 1 table spoon
    Beef stock 1 quart

    Roux - 4oz butter 1/2 cup flour cooked together to a pale tan paste.

    Method:

    1. In saute pan combine shallot and cracked peppercorns, thyme, add vinegar and Jack Daniels. Cook over medium heat until pan is almost dry. Set aside

    2. In sauce pan heat oil, add onion and carrots cook until slightly browned. Add celery cook until celery in warm, then add tomato paste and cook until paste is carmelized. Add beef stock and simmer for 30 minutes.

    3. Strain out vegetables, add shallot-peppercorn mixture, thicken with roux. Should be the viscosity of brown gravy.


    NOTES:
    You can find cracked peppercorns at the market or use whole peppercorn, place on cutting board and crush with saute pan with downward rolling motion. Whole are better, more voitale oils.

    Knorr makes a great liquid beef consentrate, avoid the cubes they are way to salty and usually have very little beef in them.

    When thickening with roux use a whisk and add a litte roux to heated sauce a little at a time until disired thickness.

    A little more J.D. at the end to adjust the flavor may be needed.
    This sauce will keep for quite some time in the refrigerator. Can be heated portions at a time, add a little soften whole butter just before putting on steak.
    This sauce rocks!! Enjoy

    Ah, Jack Daniels sauce, gotta love that one! I have the recipe somewhere for the Jack Daniels sauce they use in Friday's, a great sauce, made it once, and really good!

    Jim, maybe you should have a recipe section on the board! :)
    Dan is always asking for different and easy foods to make.
