      Excellent recipe. My husband and I found ourselves some alone time and a couple of beautiful filets. I used a pound of mushrooms, and substituted 3/4 cup of green onion in lieu of the shallots, a cup of beef broth and increased the flour to 2Tbs. to accomodate the increased liquid. I found the mustard to be a bit to much and will reduce to one TBS next time. This is definetely going to be used again and again.

      Excellent recipe. I did half a recipe and served it with Uncle Bill's Deep Fried Zucchini Strips as an appetizer and Crab Meat Stuffed Shrimp to make surf and turf. Great way to celebrate our anniversary.

      First class sauce. Used regular brandy because that is what I had. Delicious anyway. Thanks, Jovigirl.
