Flaming Steak Diane

Jeanne Gliddon


A co-worker gave me this recipe years ago when I was looking for a romantic meal that I wanted to prepare. I thought it appropriate for me to post this on Valentine's Day so I am very happy to share it with you. It was such a huge success with my family tonight and I was very proud to serve them something so special! This is a very easy recipe to make and I hope that you try it!

  • 2Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet.
  • 3Dredge steaks in flour, salt & pepper mixture.
  • 4Cook steaks in butter on medium high heat for 2 minutes on each side (fast). Remove from skillet and set aside. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  • 5In same skillet melt 2 tablespoons butter and add mushrooms.
  • 6To mushroom and butter mixture add beef broth and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 7Pour 1/4 cup of Brandy on mushroom mixture and carefully light with a torch like lighter! Cook until flame dies out.

    Suggestion: I would double the sauce when making three or four steaks but I would still use only the 1/4 cup of Brandy.
