Elegant and Flavorful Classic Steak Diane


– 4 beef tenderloin steaks, about 6 ounces each

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

– 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

– 1 small onion, finely chopped

– 2 cloves garlic, minced

– 1/2 cup beef broth

– 1/4 cup brandy or cognac

– 1/4 cup heavy cream

– 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

– 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

– 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

– Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the beef tenderloin steaks with salt and black pepper, then sear them in the skillet for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare doneness. Remove the steaks from the skillet and cover to keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, melt butter and sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic until fragrant and softened.
  3. Pour in the beef broth and brandy or cognac, stirring to deglaze the skillet and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom. Allow the mixture to simmer and reduce by half.
  4. Stir in the heavy cream, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and chopped parsley, letting the sauce thicken slightly.
  5. Return the seared beef tenderloin steaks to the skillet, spooning the sauce over them, and cook for another 2-3 minutes to warm the steaks through.
  6. Serve the Classic Steak Diane hot, garnished with additional chopped parsley, with your favorite side dishes.
