subbing Crown Royal for cognac or brandy in recipe?

I can talk all day about my favorite beer and wines, but I know just about diddly when it comes to hard stuff. I have really nice steaks that I was going to make for dinner tonight and need cognac or brandy for the steak au poivre recipe. I really don't want to face a liquor store on NYE, but I also don't want to ruin my $$$ (they're free range, organic, kneaded with a thousand butterfly wings, etc. ) steaks.

Do you think I can sub the Crown Royal we happen to have on hand? I think that's whisky, right?

  • It is whisky. I don't think it would work that as well as cognac/brandy - all those butterfly wings going to waste . . .

  • after some extensive Googling, err research, i think i might risk it. there are actually a lot of steak au poivre recipes that call specifically for whisky, so it should work okay. luckily, dh is not picky about steak. or booze.
