  1. Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic and all but 2 teaspoons of the mustard. Place the steaks on a plate, and spread half of the garlic mustard mixture over one side of them. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry bacon until crisp, then remove from the pan, leaving the grease. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
  3. Heat the bacon grease in the skillet over medium-high heat, and add olive oil if necessary to cover the bottom of the pan. Fry steaks mustard side down for about 5 minutes, until golden brown. While the steaks are frying, spread the remaining garlic and mustard over the top. Flip the steaks over, and fry for about 2 minutes, until browned. Remove steaks to a serving platter, and keep warm.
  4. Keep the skillet over medium-high heat, and stir in the rosemary, whiskey, reserved mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Top steaks with crumbled bacon and the sauce, and serve.

I substituted tequilla for the whiskey and left out the brown sugar. It was great.

This was my first time ever cooking steak and I made it perfectly. The only thing I thought it needed was a bit more of a sauce but less mustard taste. I was expecting it to be different than it...

The sauce was a great combination of flavors. It was good on the round steak we used, but I think a better cut of steak would really make this a wow dish. I could've just eaten the sauce with ...

The sauce was really bitter, not really sure why, but had to add a lot of brown sugar. The mustard/garlic mix came off in the pan Made it work, but won't make again.

Made a couple of alterations to this one and it is really good. I didn't care to have the crumbled bacon on top of the steak, because it made the steak seem crunchy. But at the same time I did l...
