    GoldsmithLissa's Note:

    Note: To spice it up to your liking.... Experiment with sherry, port or a luxury rum in place of bourbon. (With rum, it needs to be a luxury sipping rum with complex flavors like Zacapa or Zaya, not the cheap stuff). Also, add some cracked peppercorn over the sauce-covered steaks (not regular black pepper) or season your steak heavily with black pepper to create a strong mix of spice and sweet. For a richer recipe, use half-and-half or cream for milk. For a healthier version, I substituted Splenda and it turned out just fine. Also can be used to top salmon, but it was borne to top filet mignon. Maybe even might be good over shrimp, but haven't tried it.
