Bourbon Glazed Filet of Beef

Well, I feel guilty...y'all been cooking without me. Okie Dokie, since you seem to be into the beef & Bourbon thing, here's a good one. It's really quick, and great with a salad and a side for an intimate dinner for two:

2 6oz. filets
1/2 cup butter
4 oz. fine aged Kentucky Bourbon
Fresh ground pepper

Saute' the filets in the butter on high heat until medium rare and plate. Deglaze the pan (scrape well) with the Bourbon, then drizzle the Bourbon butter and grind the pepper over the filet . Salt to taste.

I can't take credit for this recipe. I just condensed it from a recipe in Col. Mike Masters' book, 'Hospitality - Kentucky Style. It's a great book. The only thing I changed was the cook time. I prefer my steak rare (salad isn't's something 'food' eats... :lol: ) and I may have accidentally splashed in a little extra Bourbon...
As a Kentuckian, I consider it my civic duty to drink Bourbon, smoke and bet the ponies. Its a tuff job, but someone has to do it...

I have some deer tender loin I was planning on fixing it by frying in olive oil and then hitting it with Greek Seasoning but I think I will try it out with this instead.
