Steak with Whiskey Shallots

Preparation time : 30 minutes

12 shallots

1/4 cup whiskey (e.g. Jack Daniels)

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 cups vegetable stock

1 tsp saffron

1 bay leaf

2 cloves

3 allspice berries


1 tbsp cornstarch

4 rump steaks (à 7 oz)






Step by step

  1. Peel and halve the shallots. Put the whiskey, shallots, vinegar, vegetable stock, saffron and spices into a pan. Season with salt and leave it to simmer for approx. 10 minutes. Remove the shallots from the broth and leave them to cool. Bring the broth once again to a boil. Mix the starch with water and then add to broth to thicken.
  2. Pat the meat dry. Heat the grill pan on high and cook for about 3–4 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper. Add the shallots to the meat and heat until warm. Serve the meat and the shallots together with toasted bread.

Cook the meat as preferred. If for example you like your steaks well-done, then increase the cooking time to approx. 5 - 6 minutes per side.
