This recipe cooks the steaks to medium-rare doneness. Lower the temperature and increase cook time for more well-done steaks.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle steaks evenly with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add steaks, and cook 3 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from skillet, and keep warm.

Step 3

Add brandy to skillet, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of skillet. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves and browns.

Step 4

Remove skillet from heat; whisk in cream until blended. Return to heat, and bring to a boil; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until thickened. Serve immediately over steaks. Garnish, if desired.
