Steak Diane

This is such a fast and easy way for Steak Diane.  It took me about 35 minutes from start to finish.  It also had great flavors.  I hope you enjoy!

4 sirloin steaks
3 shallots peeled and sliced
6 ounces crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 TBS salted butter
1 garlic clove, minced
2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1 TBS Dijon mustard
1/2 cup brandy
1 cup heavy cream
flat leaf parsley, minced

Using a meat pounder or rolling pin, pound out the steaks to about 1/2 inch thin and trim off any excess fat.  Season both sides of the steak with salt and pepper.Heat about 1 TBS of olive oil in a pan large enough to hold all four steaks.  Quickly saute the steaks for 1 minute on both sides and remove from the pan.

In the same pan add the shallots and saute briefly.

Then add the mushrooms and butter.

 Then add the minced garlic. Saute for 3-4 minutes and then add the Worcestershire sauce and the mustard.  Stir and heat through.  Turn up the heat and tilt the pan away from you.  Pour the brandy into the far end of the pan and ignite.  Once the alcohol has burned off, stir the the content of the pan to combine.  Then add the cream and turn down the heat.  Put the steak back into the pan and cook a little further, depending on how well done you like them.  Add the chopped parsley to the pan.

I served with sesame green beans and sauteed potatoes.
