This is an inexpensive take on traditional Steak Diane. I make this for my husband, who loves to play with fire. From Great American Recipe card series.

Directions See How It's Made
- Place steaks between waxed paper and pound slightly with a mallet.
- In small skillet, melt 1 tbsp butter and saute scallion for 2-3 minutes.
- Stir in worcestershire, lemon juice, and parsley.

- In a medium-large skillet, melt 1 tbsp butter and brown steaks, about 2 minutes per side.
- Season with salt & pepper.
