What would Irish cooking be like if it didn’t use its famous whiskeys? Rich in flavours, whiskey has the gift of delicately flavouring meats: an essential ingredient to give body to a dish!

Taste the steaks with Irish whiskey

A meat that is as fragrant as can be!

Beef, when flavoured with Irish whiskey, is one of the most common gastronomic dishes in Ireland! Very appreciated, it allows to obtain fine and tasty steaks, which require very little preparation time!

As far as the choice of whiskey is concerned, you have of course carte blanche. However, avoid whiskeys more than 10 years old: it would be a pity to use them for cooking…

As an accompaniment, don’t hesitate to serve the steaks with fries, potatoes, or peas for a bit of freshness.
