This was fantastic! My DH can't stand mushrooms and still ate every morsel. Thanks for a great recipe
Absolutely delicious. Made with New York strips instead of filets.
mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmm mmmmm loved it. So did my darling! Made as specified except swapped brandy for bourbon as that is what i had. Made complete gluttons of ourselves :-)
Outstanding! I made this for hubby today and he really enjoyed it. I don't eat red meat so I can't comment on the flavour but the recipe was very easy to put together. I used filet of beef as stated, hubby tells me it was very tender cut. I wasn't able to find double cream or half cream so I used thicken cream. I substituted the brandy with a few drops of brandy essence & liquid beef stock. I served it with mash potatoes. After hubby ate this recipe he tells me he wouldn't bother to order this at a restaurant because his meal was perfect. Thank you The Flying Chef
The only drawback for us was that the thyme was overpowering (fresh lemon thyme from the garden) would cut this back to about a teaspoon, other than that I subbed spring onion/scallion for the shallots due to allergy issues and had to use scotch whisky for the brandy. Only 2 of us had it over steak and the other 2 as a side as they preferred to have sausages to steak. Thank you The Flying Chef, made for Recipe Swap #20 - September 2008 as a recipenap.
Yumbo, we loved this. I do have a couple of questions though...you have left out where to add the dijon, I guessed and added it at step 6,with the beef stock (3/4 teaspoon???, I added 1/4 cup). Apart from these relatively minor hiccups we really enjoyed this recipe. Served with Smashed Potatoes, asparagus and corn on the cob. A wonderful meal!!!
Absolutely wonderful. I made a few changes to what I had on hand - didn't have brandy so I used red wine, veg broth in place of beef stock and it still was fantastic. Used fillet mignon - what a treat. I'll make sure I have brandy next time as this will surely take it to another level. This is a keeper, thanks Flying Chef.
Delicious and oh so easy! I cooked the steaks on the grill, but otherwise followed the recipe exact. A very flavorful sauce. We will be making this one again and again. Thanks for another keeper Flying Chef!
