Broiled Steak with Bourbon Sauce

Steaks are high on the list of most cherished foods for men. Whether it is the deep, intricate flavor of the juices or the unique texture of the meat, guys love to set down with knife and fork to demolish a good tender steak. With the addition of a bourbon sauce no man will be able to resist falling in love, at least with the steak.

2 one-inch thick sirloin strip steaks
1 cloves of garlic - minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
dash coarse ground black pepper
dash salt to taste
-- For Bourbon Sauce --
3 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons dried chives
1 teaspoon parsley
1 bare pinch of dried cilantro
1 clove garlic - crushed
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons bourbon

Begin by heating up a cast-iron skillet on medium-high heat. Pour olive oil into pan. While waiting for pan to heat up, thoroughly season sirloin strip steaks by pressing salt, pepper, and garlic into the raw meat. Sear steaks on both sides then reduce heat to medium to cook to desired doneness. (Safety tip, in case you haven't heard - Don't eat raw meat!) Remove steaks from skillet.

Continuing with the skillet over medium-low heat, add all the ingredients for the bourbon sauce, beginning with the butter and ending with the bourbon. Let them simmer for about two or three minutes, until the dried spice ingredients have thoroughly soaked. Pour over steaks and serve.
