Bourbon Mushroom Sauce

What better way to celebrate Bourbon Heritage month than consuming some bourbon?  Not a bourbon drinker?  Yeah--me neither.  I'd rather eat it!  So I celebrated by making this spoon-licking good sauce for grilled steak and pork chops (I seriously licked the spoon--twice)!

This couldn't be easier if your significant other handles the grilling (The Hubby is the greatest!).  If not, you can always sear the meat in the pan first, and then make the sauce!
