Fancy entertaining! So very good and rich! I tasted the sauce before adding the cream Thinking a dab of butter would just finish this off great. The cream did make it very rich for those special occasions. For the brandy I used Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry. So yummy.

I made this using one large T-bone steak, but I omitted using the brandy, as I didn't want to take a chance causing a fire lol! but used all other ingredients, also added in garlic. DH enjoyed this for lunch, thanks Ev!...Kitten

i made this last night and it was absoloutely delicious; i didnt have shallots, so substituted with some regular chopped onions, I even managed not to singe my eyebrows when i ignited the brandy..that was the fun part of this recipe!
