6 petite sirloin steaks, 1 -1/2 inch thick
10 oz. sliced cremini mushrooms
1/2 onion, diced
half a head of roasted garlic, pulp squeezed out and reserved
1/2 cup Irish whiskey
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper; to taste
In a hot cast iron pan, drizzle with a little bit of olive oil. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Place steaks in hot pan and sear for 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Place on baking sheet and cover with foil. Place steaks in oven set at 375 degrees while making sauce. Add the onions to the pan the steaks were seared in along with more olive oil, if needed. Saute until softened and add the mushrooms. Cook mushrooms until softened and moisture released has evaporated. Add the garlic pulp. Remove pan from heat and add the whiskey. Return to heat and reduce until liquid is nearly gone. Pour in cream and simmer until slightly thickened. Remove steaks from oven and serve with sauce on top. Steaks should be medium rare depending on thickness.
