Tequila Cream Sauce!

Ok here goes, I found this sauce one day after (god forbid) pan searing a steak. It works well with both the steak and fish.

Start with one cup of tequila, 2-3 shalotts, and 10-12 green peppercorns. I get the ones that are in a brine, they look a lot like capers.
Simmer until reduced by half.
(If pan searing of course deglaze with the tequila.)
Add approx. 2/3cup heavy cream, continue to reduce until sauce coats the back of a spoon.
This part is optional, strain out the peppercorns and shallotts. I leave them in if doing a steak.

Finish with 2-3tsp butter, salt and white pepper.

It's pretty mild but is a nice accent to both.
Hope you enjoy,


  • dang kenny, that sounds really good!!! ... but what i'm really impressed about is that YOU actually left enough tequilla in the bottle to make a sauce in the first place!!!!!

    I had an old bottle of Cuervo 1800, had to use it for something. You know I won't drink that stuff. :S
  • LOL. ...thats like me and wine. ..won't drink it, but i'll always find a good use for it to cook with!!. ..that tequila sauce sounds great... .i also like to throw a shot of tequila into almost any flank steak or skirt steak or hanger steak marinade for a little extra flavor additive. .. .

    Thanks for posting that recipe, Chris posted a picture of halibut with a tequila crema sauce on another board I frequent and I'm guessing it's the same sauce???

    Yes, to Waldorf & the Derby!!! I do not think I can come up with a fancy hat like yours but I can drink a mint julep in honor. :laugh: I thought I had a picture but could not find it. :angry: I wish you could make it to Ocala. What other fests do you have plans for?
