For such an easy recipe, this was wonderful. I followed directions exactly except that I used a NY strip steak and I skipped the water. Just let my black iron skillet cool down a bit, splashed with a bit of sherry, then poured in the sauce ingredients. Didn't need to put it back on the stove, but cast iron skillets retain a lot of heat. Served with the CL creamed spinach and simple roasted baby potatoes. Tasted like a classic steakhouse dinner without the cost and the unnecessary calories and fats.
Was easy and tasty! I added mushrooms which I guess changes the Diane part of the recipe and served it with a side of asparagus. Great weeknight meal!
simple, elegant and flavorful
Obviously not as good as prepared table side Steak Diane, but a very nice, flavorful do-at-home version. Be sure to use nice quality steaks. Any leftovers make a wonderful appetizer - dry toast thin baguette slices in the oven, add small amt. of Diane sauce to the baguette slices, and top with thin slices of the steak. Magnifique!!!
Very simple, flavorful sauce; made to recipe except that we added the accumulated juices from the resting steaks. Served with (oven-fried) sweet potato fries and red-skinned potato fries & steamed asparagus. First course was CL's "cover recipe" French Onion Soup.
