This was a delicious compliment to the Omaha Filets we received for Christmas. Really easy - I did not have beef broth, so I used beef boullion and it was still delicious - I used unsalted butter and did not find that it was too salty with the boullion. I also steamed some potatoes on the side and then tossed them in the sauce to serve - delish!!!
I made this last night for dinner and it was incredible. My DH said this was the best steak he had ever had cooked on the stove. I did substitute rib-eyes for the filet. The combination of flavors is perfect. I sauteed some mushrooms with butter and worcestershire and served those alongside the steaks. Heavenly....
