The "Witchery" restaurant in Edinburgh is located in a building where the "Old Hell Fire Club" held their meetings. The restaurant serves Steak Balmoral, made with a whisky sauce.
4 Aberdeen Angus steaks. If you are only cooking for two, halve the quantities below for the sauce.
4 tablespoons Scotch whisky
Half pint double cream
Quarter pint beef stock
4 oz sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon coarse grain mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
1 oz butter
Pan fry the steaks and keep warm. Add the whisky to the pan and carefully set it alight. Add the cream, stock and mushrooms and bring to a boil. Simmer gently until the sauce has reduced by half, stirring from time to time.
