These sirloin steaks have a lovely sauce made from Baileys Irish cream, Irish whiskey, butter and parsley. They are very easy to make and taste amazing.
We barbecue at our house every Saturday. My husband is the grill master and I come up with the recipes.
Tonight I gave him the night off and made a dish featuring two of my favorite drinks.
Sirloin Steaks with Baileys Irish cream and Whiskey Sauce
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 for these sirloin steaks. He was doubly happy to have the night off!
What a perfect choice for St. Patrick’s day this would be for a special dinner party!
