I have a whole shelf of J.W. books, huge fan as is my wife’s son! That book has not been added to the collection...yet!
You just made a fan for life. DH is a big fan of John Wayne also. He is out in the kitchen working on his steak now as I type. Will let you know the results in a while.

Till you get your own book, I will be happy to share mine with you. If you want any more J. W. recipes, just let me know.

Thanks Joan, too busy for much experimenting no matter how much I might want to!
I do enjoy most things “Duke”, I have ten JW coffee mugs, four pocket knives, who knows how much other “stuff” I’ve collected! My wife’s son is equally addicted to things “JW”.

Sounds like a very nice collection. When you have the time, I would love to know what some of your J.W. books are.

Barb and I made it, it was very good. We have the John Wayne book Way to Grill. Also have the John Wayne Cast Iron book as we almost always use our cast iron skillets and Dutch ovens when we can. Some good recipes in that one too.

Finally got around to making this. I thought it was good. Debbie likes her steak just salt and pepper so she did not put it on hers, just tasted mine. Said it was OK but not going to change her ways.

A couple of notes:

I would half the white wine vinegar.

1/2 the recipe is more than enough for two people.

Allen, thank you so much for trying this recipe. As I have noted, I have seafood, (usually shrimp or crab) when DH has steak, so I can't vouch for the recipe. I do know that he made a full recipe of the butter and had a good time using it on other things. lol

I keep his so busy with new recipes, I bet he has forgotten about this one. I will have to pull it and remind him how much he enjoyed it. Bet he will want it tonight. lol
