Ingredients
Directions

Cook the onions in the 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes. When the onions are brown, turn off the burner temporarily so you won't ignite your kitchen. Or yourself.

Pour in the whiskey. As soon as it evaporates, turn the burner on medium-high heat and pour in the beef stock. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, then allow the mixture to bubble up and reduce by half.

Whisk in the remaining tablespoon of butter, then reduce the heat to low. Whisk in 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup cream, according to your taste. Allow the sauce to simmer and thicken for a few minutes.

Serve with beef, baby!

Another hit for Christmas dinner! It does need to be doubled, and be sure to reduce adequately... Adults loved it, children might not be... :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this and the only think I can say is Yum Yum. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very tasty and looked good in the pan while cooking but totally separated when removed from the heat. Anyone know why?? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sounds fantastic! If doubling or tripling or more, would I also increase the whiskey amount? Seems like that would be a huge amount. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm in love with this sauce, I could drink it it's so good! The key is to let the liquids reduce! This sauce always impresses my boyfriend, no matter how many times I make it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
made this to go with my Prime Rib Christmas dinner. Some members still preferred to have au jus, but I made them taste it and they liked it. I loved it very much-but I wasn't sure if i should strain off the onions before serving?? The recipe picture looked smooth compared to the actual recipe. So, I did NOT strain it, but if I make it again I will strain the onions out first. item not reviewed by moderator and published
All I can say is WOW, incredibly delicious sauce. I made it to accompany the 9-hour burgundy mushrooms, I had to double the amounts of the recipe because I had 20 people over, and it was unanimous…everyone loved it. Thank you for allowing me to show off with this amazing sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read all of the reviews, and was excited to try it. The sauce was nearly white, not at all like the brown creamy picture shown with the recipe, it came out very watery and looks like cream poured on steak, why is this a good thing? item not reviewed by moderator and published
