Instructions Checklist
  • Place the steaks between two sheets of plastic wrap; pound with a kitchen mallet to tenderize.

  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat, and heat until it begins to smoke. Cook the steaks for 1 to 2 minutes on each side until they have browned. Pour brandy over steaks and carefully ignite. Once the flames burn off, remove steaks from the pan and set aside.

  • Cook the onion and garlic in the same skillet over medium heat until they soften. Stir in the red wine, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper; mix well. Mix in the mushrooms, stir, and cook for about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, coat one side of each of the steaks with 2 tablespoons of the Dijon mustard. Gently lay them on top of the sauce in the skillet, mustard-side down. Spread 2 tablespoons on top of the steaks. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove the steaks from the sauce, and keep warm.

  • Stir the cream in to the mushroom sauce and bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, return the steaks to the sauce, and simmer for 1 minute more before serving.

After preparing and eating this for the first time my husband told me this was the best steak he had ever had. Considering that we are competitive cooks and live in a part of the country that is known for its steaks that is quite a statement. One recommendation: the recipe calls for "steak sauce"....make sure it is one that you really like because the steak sauce provides a lot of flavor to this the cream sauce. I didn't use a steak "sauce" at all....I used my favorite steak marinade: Allegro Original Marinade. Also 1/2 cup of Dijon mustard seems like a lot so just eyeball it and slather it on to each side of the steak so that it coats each side evenly...like spreading mustard on a sandwich. I probably used between 1/4 to 1/2 to coat all four sides. Read More

I was skeptical about cooking this dish with the recipe calling for so many unmatched ingredients but I did and presented it to my family as a steak recipe. It is edible and all of us finished but left most of the sauce on our plates. I certainly don't want to dicourage others from using this recipe so I am giving it a three. For those who wish a Steak Diane ( named after the Roman "hunter" goddess) use filet mignon rubbed with garlic and crushed black peppercorns and fried quickly very quickly in butter; deglazethe pan juices with more butter finely chopped shallots heavy creme beef stock and if desired a dash of Worcestershire sauce and flambeed with brandy. The sauce is then poured over the steak prior to serving. I serve pommes frites and pea pods to accompany. Bon Appetite. Read More

I made this for my husband and mother-in-law they loved it! I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I didn't like about it was the meat did start to get tough when you put it back into the pan with the mushrooms and sauce. It really only needs to be in there for about 30 seconds. I also had my butcher tenderize the steaks. There was a lot of the sauce left over next time we will have mash potatoes instead of wild rice. It is a keeper! Read More

DH is rating this a 5 star recipe. He absolutely loved it. All I kept hearing was mm mm mm. I rarely eat beef but I did have a few bites and it was quite delicious. I think I will cut back on the mustard just a bit next time. Otherwise I made it exactly as stated. Thank you for sharing. Read More

I am so impressed with this recipe. Its better than what I've tasted at 5 star restaurants. I didn't use the brandy or ignite the sauce but I don't think you need to. Excellent!!!! Read More

Absolutely delicious and very elegant. Fine dining at home! Next time I will cook the onions a bit longer -- they were not quite soft enough. Note that I said 'Next time ' and it will be soon! Read More

Everytime I've made this it's been a hit. There is definately a lot of sauce left over so I always make mashed potatoes with it and use the sauce as a gravy. Read More

This recipe was ok. Just way way to much mustard for us. I would use less then half of what it calls for. Read More

My husband said that this was the best steak he ever ate. Which is exceptional since he is picky about steak!!! The flames were wild (first time doing that) but this was easy and very good!!! Read More
