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.

Delicious!! I too had to cook the steaks a little longer, about 7 minutes on each side- we like ours a little more done in the middle. I served this with couscous and green beans. It was so easy to make, I definitely recommend!

Delicious! This could be one of the best steaks I have ever tasted. We will definitely make this again. I had took cook the steak a bit longer than recommended - at least 6 minutes or so on each side leaving it a little pink.
