DIRECTIONS

  • in the same frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter.
  • Add the shallot and parsley and saute until the shallot is softened, 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from heat and add the Cognac.
  • Briefly return to the heat to warm; then remove from the heat again to ignite the Cognac using a long kitchen match, making sure the overhead fan is off and averting your eyes. Keep a lid handly in case the flame should flare up.
  • When the flame has burned out, return the pan to high heat and whisk in the mustard, tomato paste, reserved 1 Tb rub, and beef stock.
  • Cook, whisking often, to reduce the sauce by half, 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the cream and cayenne to taste.
  • Add any accumulated juices from the steaks. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  • To serve, spoon a generous amount of sauce over the steaks and serve at once. Pass any extra sauce at the table.
