Easy Recipe for Cooking a Quick and Delicious Meal - Steak Diane

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Every woman, family CEO or career woman, needs an easy recipe for cooking a quick and delicious steak.  This easy recipe is for Steak Diane, which you may think of as a restaurant dish, but which is actually an easy recipe you can make at home.


Begin this easy recipe with 4 center cut beef tenderloin medallions, 3 ounces each.  Trim off all fat and pound until ½ thick.  Chill the steak in the fridge to 'set' it.  Sauté 1 tablespoon butter in 8 to 10 inch pan over medium heat for 1 minute.  Add the steaks and sauté over a medium heat.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Increase heat to medium high.  Sauté no more than 2 minutes on each side, then remove from heat. 


Place steaks on plate and cool in refrigerator for 5 minutes.  While they are cooling, heat a 12 inch sauté pan over medium heat 1 minute.  Add 1 ½ ounces clarified butter to pan with 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.  Put 2 tablespoons shallots chopped fine, 1/8 teaspoon minced garlic, and ¼ mushroom caps sliced 1/8 inch thick. 


Place steaks around edges of pan.  Stir mushroom mixture to keep it from boiling.  After 2 minutes of sautéing, add in 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (not from concentrate).  Season all ingredients with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Turn steaks over and add ½ teaspoon thyme, 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder, 1 tablespoon dried parsley.  


Cook the steaks until they are nearly done (cooking time will depend on weight and thickness).  Pour 2 ounces heavy cream into pan and add 1 tablespoon chives.  Tilt pan and add 1 ounce brandy for a flaming finish to this easy recipe.  Turn heat on high and light brandy with a match.  Swirl, turn off heat and allow flame to go out.   

This is one recipe that no one will ever believe is so easy... and it tastes delicious too.
