Got any recipes for a whiskey peppercorn sauce to go with filet mignon?

Long ago at The Hungry Hunter restaurant, they had a fantastic whiskey peppercorn sauce that went with some filet mignon medallions. Any suggestions?

Alex,

Check out the recipe I posted for Steak au Poivre. Substitute whisky for the cognac and instead of encrusting your steak with peppercorns, add them to the sauce. I think you'll end up with something really nice.
I made this a few months back. Absolutely fantastic!
I was the regional Chef for Hungry Hunters/ Mountain Jacks many years ago. Have all original prep and cook recipes. Yes the whiskey peppercorn sauce.
Could you post the Whiskey Peppercorn sauce recipe? I seem to recall the filet medallions also came with a port wine sauce that was outstanding as well. Unfortunately, it seems like all the Hungry Hunter restaurants are out of business, at least in SoCal. My family went there all the time when I was growing up for special occasion dinners. Great prime rib, wonderful bread and cream of broccoli soup too.

Thanks.

Jim!!! You rule my friend. Thanks so much for supplying the recipe. Alex will VERY happy!
Awesome. Jim's the man!

Thanks for the recipe.  I worked at Mt. Jacks for over a decade so I know this is the real deal.  Do you have the reipe for the Teriyaki Chicken??  Is the Chicken marinade the same as the Teriyaki Marinade for the Top Sirloin?  Thanks so much.  Robyn

I used to be a cook for 3 years like a decade ago at Mt Jacks and loved this sauce, especially when used for the forest mushroom chicken. I have been recreating it from memory for years and its great to see I was fairly spot on for everything.

 

This sauce is great by itself but if you add some sliced baby bella mushrooms half way through the reducing process with the cream it brings it to a differnet level. Grill 2 boneless chicken breasts, place on top of 2 pieces of crusty garlic bread and then smother with the mushroom whiskey sauce. The crustier the bread the better since the sauce will soften them. Anyone that worked or went to those restaurants should remember that dish.

 

Thanks for bringing back the memories!
