Irish Whiskey Steak – A delicious recipe for the slow cooker


  • 6 Med to large minute steaks (beef cutlets)
  • 1 Med onion halved and sliced thin
  • 1/2 Cup Irish whiskey
  • 1 Cup Sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Cans Beef broth or bouillon and water
  • 2 Chopped garlic cloves
  • Flour to coat steaks approx 3/4 cup or as needed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Cup Light cream
  • Oil, to brown steaks


  1. Step One

    Coat the steaks well with flour and let set 3 min. Slice onion and set aside.

  2. Step Two

    In a med hot pan brown the steaks on both sides. Do this slowly to avoid burning the flour in the pan. It will be used later.

  3. Step Three

    Salt and pepper each one and place them in a large 5 to 6 qt slow cooker.

  4. Step Four

    Add onion and garlic to the pan and cook for 3 to 5 min or until the onion starts to turn clear.

  5. Step Five

    Add 2 tbl left over flour from coating the steaks and mix well while cooking for 3 more min. If necessary add just a smidgen more oil to avoid the mixture from sticking and browning.

  6. Step Six

    Slowly add 1/2 the broth and stir well.

  7. Step Seven

    Turn off the heat and add the whiskey.

  8. Step Eight

    Turn heat back on to med low and cook stirring well until the mixture just starts to thicken.

  9. Step Nine

    Add more broth to make a thin gravy like mixture.

  10. Step Ten

    Taste to see if more salt or pepper is needed. Remember that the salt will be more evident as the sauce cooks down in the slow cooker.

  11. Step Eleven

    Add the mushrooms now and pour carefully over the meat in the slow cooker.

  12. Step Twelve

    Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours checking 1/2 way through to make sure the liquid doesn't cook down too much. If it does add more broth or water.

  13. Step Thirteen

    After 4 hours add the cream to the meat in the pot turning carefully to avoid breaking up the steaks. If any fat rises to the top just spoon it off.

  14. Step Fourteen

    This goes great with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable or salad.

  15. Step Fifteen

    I like to make traditional Irish soda bread that isn't sweet and also serve it with lots of good butter.

  16. Step Sixteen

    Serves 4 to 6 depending on appetite.

  17. Step Seventeen

    To double the recipe increase the whiskey to 3/4 cup the broth to 5 cups the onion to 1 large flour to 1/4 cup and cream to 1 and 1/2 cups.

  18. Step Eighteen

    Takes 8 to 9 hrs to cook a double batch and the large slow cooker is very full.

  19. Step Nineteen

    Better to make 2 separate slow cookers at 5 to 6 hours.
