“A gourmet meal that will have your friends talking. The herbs and bourbon sauce give this steak a wonderful flavour. I barbequed my steak but the recipe tells you to cook in the oven. If you are using dried herbs the prep time is considerably less. I like to use fresh herbs to bring out the flavour. Serve this with garlic and paramasen mashed potatoes and a green salad. I found this gem in a Food and Drink Magazine the local liquor store gives out.”
