love the sauce! i grilled my steaks so i could not use the pans scrapings, i did however cut off some of the fat before i cooked the steak and sauted it in the butter and shallots, i also added a teaspon or so of dijon mustard along with the cream. this sauce was amazing, great flavor did not over power the steak at all, a must try

This was delicious! The sauce was very flavorful and a perfect complement to the beef. I served it with # 482036, and it was a great combination.
Made for ZWT8.

Yum, yum, yummiest! We grilled the steaks...a cow sized porterhouse for DH and a dainty filet mignon for me. I did however make the full sauce recipe. It is so darn good I could eat it with a spoon. Ok, I did eat it with a spoon. What you see in the picture is the largest portion of the sauce left after my 'tastings'. There was less than 1/4 of a cup left & I should be ashamed. lol. I think this would aslo be a fabulous base for other dishes. Mushrooms would be good in it too. Did I tell you I love this sauce :) Made for ZWT5 - Ali Baba's Babes

This was a huge hit at our house last night. We have had a real treat this summer with really good steaks, something I usually don't buy. The sauce was delicious and loved by everyone. Made for a very too late ZWT8.

Delicious simply delicious diner. We enjoyed this tasty steak for dinner last night along with sweet carrotes and garlic green beans. What a taste experience, the meat was perfect and the sauce devine. A quick and easy to make sauce, that was out of this world good. I love the combination of cognac, butter, cream and shallots. Even my picky dh cleaned his plate. Thanks for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again. Made for Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - France.

This sauce is fantastic! I had some 1-inch thick sirloin that I cut into 3-4" strips. Having no cognac, I used brandy. Delicious!!! It tastes like a dish you would eat in a restaurant, and very easy to make at home. Thanks diner524! Made for PRMR.

Yum! This was simple and wonderful. My cognac didn't flame until I shook the pan a little bit - then it looked great and added that special touch to this dinner. Merci diner for a great meal. Made for ZWT5 2009.
