Football Food Friday

By ChargerGirl Cindi

Sorry I haven’t been foody in awhile my friends.  All the football action has been keeping me busy!  I stopped what I was doing when I came across a recipe this week that I had to share, so Football Food Friday is back!

Recipe:  Irish Steaks

What you need:  2 tablespoons vegetable oil,  3 tablespoons butter,  1 onion, chopped,  4 (4 ounce) filet, rib-eye or your favorite steaks,  1 clove garlic, cut in half lengthwise,  1/4 cup Irish whiskey,  salt and pepper,  2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

What you do:   Heat vegetable oil and butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat until butter has melted. Cook and stir onions in butter and oil until lightly golden brown, about 10 minutes. Push onions aside with a spatula.  Rub steaks with cut sides of garlic clove.

Place steaks in the skillet, leaving the onions to the side, and cook over medium-high heat until meat is browned but still lightly pink inside, 2 to 4 minutes per side.  Remove the skillet from heat. Slowly pour Irish whiskey into the hot skillet (be careful, whiskey fumes are flammable). Mix browned onions into whiskey and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.  Tip:  Have fun with it.   Light whiskey fumes on fire with a barbecue lighter and allow to cook until the flames die out.  Takes about 1 minute.  ~ Be sure to stand back, no one looks cool with singed hair!

Sprinkle steaks with salt, black pepper, and parsley; turn steaks over in whiskey pan sauce to coat both sides, and serve drizzled with sauce.  Have with mashed potatoes and drizzle sauce over those too.

Enjoy this on Monday when the Chargers beat the Broncos on Monday Nite Football!   Boltup! #SDvsDN
