    A friend of mine I do some computer programming for sent me a early Christmas present of bison ribeye, NY strips, sirloin, and filet. I am going to have friends over for a Christmas dinner and need to come up with a pan sauce for the steaks(making the filets because I have 8 of them). Alcohol free because I don't keep anything in the house since I quit drinking(can react with my pain meds, bad thing). I have the typical soy, Worcestershire, butter, etc. and a fairly well stocked spice shelf. One thing I have to avoid is horseradish, they hate it! Any ideas are welcome.

    Mushroom Sauce ?


    Mary, I love to add wine or bourbon or other alcohols to most of my dishes but you can certainly make this one without it. It has a nice earthy overtone and pairs well with your meat.


    2 tsp oil
    2 cups of thinely sliced chanterelle mushrooms (or your choice)
    ¼ tsp salt
    1/8 tsp fresh black pepper
    2 small garlic cloves, minced
    1 Tbsp (or more) of tomato paste
    2 cups of beef broth
    1 Tbsp fresh minced parsley
    1 tsp fresh minced thyme
    1 tsp AP flour
    1 Tbsp chilled butter

    Petals ""in leau of vino, try a bit of good Balsamic Vin. It usually works well and cuts game taste besides.

    This bison is far from gamey, more like a lean very rich beef. Mushroom sauce would work, they are both mushroom lovers. Thanks for the idea! :smiles:

    Christmas get together is on hold, 14-20+ inches of snow in the next 2 days means staying indoors and off the roads.
