Very flavorful Steak Diane

This is one of the best steak meals I have ever had. Superb flavor. I too did not have brandy on had. So I used Cognac which I think helped to add flavor to the sauce. I would be careful with reducing the sauce to ensure it does not happen faster than you expect. If so, you can safely add additional beef broth as long as the sauce is not burnt. My wife said the Steak Diane was better than she has had in any restaurant.

Easy to prepare, Flavorful, Equal to if not better than most restaurants

Fantastic!

This is the first time I had made Steak Diane before, and although it did take a little while to do it all, for someone who is quite new to cooking as myself, I found it very easy.

My girlfriend and myself absolutely loved it! I think I added a few more mushrooms than the recipe calls for, which personally I liked. I accompanied it with a good serving of steamed vegetables.

I too didn't have any brandy on hand, and didn't want to buy a bottle that would only be used for this dish, so instead I bought my favourite bottle of red wine and used it, which I think worked great.

I plan on making this again very soon!

Easy, very tasty
