How to Make Steak Diane


  1. Pat dry the filets with paper towels and season generously with salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and butter. When hot, add steaks and cook until browned turning only once, about 1 ½ to 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil.
  3. In the same skillet, reduce heat to medium, add garlic and shallots; sauté for 30 seconds. Add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper; stir well and cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in Cognac, wait 2 seconds and then ignite; cook until the flame dies down. Add demi-glace, heavy cream, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce; stir well and cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Return the filet mignon to the skillet including the juices accumulated while resting and spoon mushroom sauce over to warm them up. After about 1 ½ minutes, transfer the steak to warm serving plates while finishing the sauce.
  6. Add chives and parsley to the sauce; stir quickly and then pour sauce over steaks. Serves 2
