    Directions:

    1. 1
      Plce the filets on a board and pat them dry with paper towels; sprinkle with salt and then press the black pepper evenly on both sides.
    2. 2
      Allow to rest at room temperature for 15 minute.
    3. 3
      Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the butter or margarine and the oil in large saute pan over med-high heat until it almost smokes. Place the steaks in pan and lower the heat to medium.
    4. 4
      Saute steaks for 4 minutes on one side and then 3 minutes on other side, for medium rare. Remove to a serving platter and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, pour all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the saute pan; add the shallots and cook over med heat for 2 minutes. Add the beef broth and cook over high heat for 4-6 minutes, until reduced by half, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
    6. 6
      Add the Cognac and cook for 2 more minutes. Off the heat, swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
    7. 7
      Serve the steaks hot with the sauce poured on top; sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
    8. 8
      These would be wonderful with a side of mushrooms, a baked potato, asparagus, freshly baked bread and a lovely wine!

      This was delicious! I am not a big fan of brandy, so I reduced the brandy by half and upped the amount of beef stock. I served this with ratatouille and roasted red bliss potatoes.

      Excellent recipe. The steak had a rich, spicy flavor and was melt in your mouth tender. Served with Nippy carrots Stuffed mushrooms and a baked potato with Cottage cheese instead of sour cream & chives - Great Sunday Dinner
