Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 steak and 4 teaspoons sauce)

Serve a company-worthy dinner of flavorful steaks, ready in less than 20 minutes. Mashed potatoes drizzled with olive oil and steamed broccoli pair well with this impressive dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle both sides of steaks evenly with salt and pepper. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove steaks from pan; keep warm.

Step 2

Melt butter in pan. Add shallots to pan; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broth and mustard to pan; cook 1 minute or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Stir in brandy. Return steaks to pan, and cook 1 minute on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve sauce with steaks.

Chef's Notes

Place fresh broccoli florets in a bowl with a small amount of water. Microwave three minutes or until crisp-tender; garnish with grated lemon rind, if desired.

I agree with reviewer ktleyed, I didn't really care for the flavor of the sauce. I tasted it after the broth & Dijon and didn't like it, added brandy, reduced and it still wasn't good. Tried a few pinches of brown sugar and that didn’t work. I ended up adding a little apple cider (not vinegar) and the slight sweetness helped mellow the flavors to make it okay. I won’t be making this again, but I suggest you taste the sauce before smothering your precious tenderloins in it.

Made as directed only after searing the steaks in the skillet, we transferred them to our Traeger barbeque to finish cooking. Nice flavor on the sauce. We served it with mushrooms, baked potatoes and peas.

This wasn't as good as I thought it would be, I just wasn't really crazy about the taste of it. Served with mashed sweet potatoes and steamed hericot verts.

Made this last nite - delish! Savory and easy - the only thing I would suggest is letting the sauce reduce down to a little more dense consistency. Certainly easy enough for use any time! I served w/ smashed potatoes and sauteed green and yello zucchini.

Not red meat eaters - the sauce is great with salmon... may try it on chicken too. Didn't alter recipe - may try the thyme as savory is always good. sides = vegetable salad and TJ's mixed brown/wild rice. Definitely special occasion keeper and easy enough for anytime.
