Recipe #2

1 (2 lb) porterhouse steaks or 1 (2 lb) strip steaks, 2-inch thick
1 tablespoon black peppercorns, coarsely crushed
2 -3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/2 teaspoon rock salt
Whiskey Sauce
1/4 lb unsalted butter
2 tablespoons chopped onions
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 tablespoons whiskey (they prefer Jack Daniels)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 dash Tabasco sauce
Directions:

1
Trim away any excess fat from the steak or steaks. Press the crushed peppercorns and garlic onto both sides of the steak and let it stand at room temperature 1 hour.
2
Heat a heavy iron skillet over high heat. Grease the skillet with a piece of the fat trimmed from the steak. Toss in about half the salt. Sear the steaks quickly on one side, then lift out; add the remaining salt to the skillet, turn the steak and sear the other side. Reduce the heat to moderate and cook the steaks as desired. Remove to a warmed platter.
3
Make the sauce. Pour off fat from the skillet. Melt the butter in the skillet over low heat; add the onion and garlic and cook slowly until soft, stirring often. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour over the steak or steaks and serve.
