Instructions

  1. Warm olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Add steaks to pan; cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned. Refrigerate until cool.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 20-25 minutes longer or until onions are golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add bourbon; cook and stir until liquid is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat oven to 400°F.
  4. Unfold one sheet puff pastry on a lightly floured surface; roll out to a 14 x 9-inch rectangle. Cut pastry into two 7 x 9-inch rectangles. Repeat step with remaining pastry.
  5. Place 1/4 cup Tennessee Whiskey BellaVitano® in the center of each pastry. Top each with onions and steak. Brush pastry edges with egg wash. Bring opposite corners of pastry over steak; pinch points and seams to seal.
  6. Place bundles seam side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cut four slits in the top of each pastry; brush with egg wash.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in meat reads 145°F. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Bourbon Cheese Sauce:

  1. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and thyme; season with salt and pepper. Cook for 4-6 minutes or until mushrooms are tender, stirring frequently. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute.
  2. Add bourbon. Bring to a boil, stirring to loosen any browned bits from bottom of pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Gradually stir in beef stock. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 6-8 minutes or until liquid is reduced to about 1 cup.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Gradually stir in cream and Dijon mustard. Bring sauce just to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 4-6 minutes longer or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Gradually stir in Tennessee Whiskey BellaVitano® until melted. Season with salt and pepper. Serve sauce with steaks. Garnish with thyme.
