These are delicious steaks,  and go well  with potatoes, vegetables, or a side salad.  Be sure to add some garlic bread to soak up the delicious sauce in this sirloin steaks with Irish whiskey sauce.

I love cooking with alcohol. It adds a depth of flavor that you just don’t get with regular pan sauces.  When cooking with it, some (but not all) of the alcohol and calories burn off, as well.

My husband always loves any dishes where I use whiskey, and  Irish whiskey combined with Baileys Irish cream makes a very special sauce.

What a perfect choice for St. Patrick’s day this would be for a special dinner party!
