Steak Diane

Nuvita Biscuits

A lean cut like filet mignon takes well to sautéing in a little fat, as in this classic preparation with a simple pan sauce that’s laced with brandy and set aflame—a spectacular feat that cooks off the alcohol and contributes rich caramel notes to the dish.


  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
    4 (4-oz.) filet mignon steaks
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    1½ cups beef stock
    2 tbsp. unsalted butter
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 shallot, minced
    4 oz. oyster or hen-of-the-woods mushrooms, torn into small pieces
    ¼ cup cognac or brandy
    ¼ cup heavy cream
    1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
    1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
    ¼ tsp. hot sauce, such as Tabasco
    1 tbsp. minced parsley
    1 tbsp. minced chives


1. Heat oil in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper, and add to skillet; cook, turning once, until browned on both sides and cooked to desired doneness, about 4 to 5 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer steaks to a plate, and set aside.

2. Return skillet to high heat, and add stock; cook until reduced until to ½ cup, about 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl, and set aside. Return skillet to heat, and add butter; add garlic and shallots, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, and cook, stirring, until they release any liquid and it evaporates and mushrooms begin to brown, about 2 minutes. Add cognac, and light with a match to flambée; cook until flame dies down. Stir in reserved stock, cream, Dijon, Worcestershire, and hot sauce, and then return steaks to skillet; cook, turning in sauce, until warmed through and sauce is thickened, about 4 minutes. Transfer steak to serving plates and stir parsley and chives into sauce; pour sauce over steaks to serve.

    my girlfriend cooked a very tasty steak diane the one with cream sauce garlic, onions, and other ingredients.

    While we are eating, after 3 bites, I stopped eating and just wanted to have sex with her, and I’m very happy for her.

    she is not wearing sexy cloths…

    We don’t really have any room in our tiny freezer, so freezing meals isn’t an option. I just need ideas for easy meals that my husband and I could make after the baby is born so I can get the ingredients. Thanks!!!
