Servings and Ingredients
|2 (6-oz. each) beef sirloin steaks, about 1-inch-thick|
|½ tsp. Hy-Vee salt, divided|
|¼ tsp. Hy-Vee ground black pepper|
|1 tbsp. Hy-Vee unsalted butter|
|1 tbsp. Gustare Vita olive oil|
|½ (8-oz.) pkg. sliced mushrooms|

|3 tbsp. Finagren's Irish whiskey|

Things To Grab
- 10-inch cast iron skillet
- Aluminum foil
Heat oil and butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sear steaks on both sides for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once halfway through. Remove seared steaks from cast iron; cover, and keep warm.
Add mushrooms and onions to cast iron skillet; season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Saute until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove cast iron from heat; add whiskey and scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Return to heat and continue to cook for 1 minute. Stir in heavy cream and bring to a simmer.
Add steaks back to skillet; continue cooking until steaks reach desired doneness. Allow to rest 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
