Bourbon Steak Sauce

I have been in a lazy cooking mood since my steak got overcooked on Sunday night. Thankfully the Bourbon Mushroom sauce I served with the steak saved the meal from being a disaster. The Bourbon Sauce is easy to make and would be great with chicken too. Heat a cast iron skillet on high, add a tablespoon of butter, before butter brown add in steaks and brown on both sides. Place skillet in a preheated 400 degree oven and finish steak to desired doneness. Remove steaks from skillet and let rest. In the same skillet add 1 cup of mushrooms and 1 chopped shallot, cook until mushrooms have absorbed all of pan juices. Add 1/4 cup of Bourbon and 1 tablespoon of butter, cook until Bourbon has reduced by half, add in about 1/8 cup of half and half or heavy cream, stir and serve over meat.
