Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Henry Bain was a maitre d' at Louisville's all-male Pendennis Club in the early 20th century. This recipe was obtained through the current president of the club, a personal friend. The recipe yields 4 pints and may be quartered. Pour into pint jars for easy storage. This is a steak sauce. Some people add a small amount of bourbon whiskey."

We couldn't find the pickled walnuts, but it didn't seem to suffer. We served it over a grilled London Broil marinated in a bourbon-brown sugar mixture. Delicious!
