Welsh Beef In Whisky Sauce

Fillet Of Beef In A Welsh Whisky Sauce



Welsh Beef in Whisky Sauce

This recipe is adapted from Dudley Newbery's excellent recipe book 'Cook Up A Treat' (published by Y Lolfa). The ingredients list calls for Welsh whisky. Remember if you are in the US that this is not a problem since many of the major American whisky brands are of Welsh origin ( Jack Daniels , Evan Williams )      The ingredients

  • 1.35kg/3lbs of sirloin of beef
  • 1.1 litres/2 pints of beef stock
  • 175ml/6 fl oz of heavy/double cream
  • 75g/3 oz of butter
  • 3 shallots - finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 good measures of Welsh whisky
  • 1-2 teaspoons of wholegrain mustard, sea salt and black pepper

      Method

  • Season the meat. Heat the oil in a roasting tin, and seal the meat until browned.
  • Cook in a hot oven (200C/Gas Mark 6) for 15 minutes to each pound and an additional 15 minutes.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and fry the shallots until softened.
  • Add the whisky to the pan before adding the stock. Bring to the boil and reduce.
  • Add the cream and mustard and cook until the sauce thickens.
  • Allow the meat to rest before carving.

The whole process should take about an hour. Remember to prepare the meat first and pay particular attention to the sauce. Constant stirring is advisable after reducing the stock and adding the cream. If the sauce doesn't thicken sufficiently try adding a dash of yoghurt to give it the right consistency. We elected to serve the dish with an accompaniment of new potatoes, chopped leek, diced carrots and green beans (see pic above). You will find the original recipe in Dudley Newbery's excellent book (see below) along with many other mouth watering treats and delicacies.
