This sauce can be made in minutes as the cooked steaks rest. To make the sauce ahead, leave out the butter. Reheat just before serving, adding water if the sauce has reduced too much, then whisk in the butter. This amount is enough for four steaks.

This is an excellent sauce...perfect with Steak. It makes the steak! I coat my steaks with oil salt and pepper and throw them on an extremely hot skillet. They cook fast! When they are off the sauce takes about 3 minutes. Read More

This was good. I changed it though. I added beef broth instead of chicken and spicy brown mustard instead of dijon. I also put in a clove of garlic. Delicious! Read More
