    Excellent recipe. My husband and I found ourselves some alone time and a couple of beautiful filets. I used a pound of mushrooms, and substituted 3/4 cup of green onion in lieu of the shallots, a cup of beef broth and increased the flour to 2Tbs. to accomodate the increased liquid. I found the mustard to be a bit to much and will reduce to one TBS next time. This is definetely going to be used again and again.

    Excellent recipe. I did half a recipe and served it with Recipe #26901 as an appetizer and Recipe #42875 to make surf and turf. Great way to celebrate our anniversary.

    First class sauce. Used regular brandy because that is what I had. Delicious anyway. Thanks, Jovigirl.

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! I used to serve steak once a week but with the increasing hike in food prices, we have it so rarely, but when we do I go to town and buy fillet mignon and really thick ones at that. This was the perfect sauce to accompany this cut of meat. There is nothing worse than dreaming about this awesome steak dinner only to be let down by the sauce and this definitely didn't disappoint. When I buy a good cut of meat such as a fillet. I tend to prefer the cut as is, but found this recipe and it sounded so good I thought I would try it. What an awesome sauce I did add 3 cloves of garlic and added a little more cognac to the steak which I then poured into the pan with the steak and ignited. This was so good and one I will enjoy again and again as I can afford our fillet mignon cuts. jovigirl this is an absolute winner and I am sure would be superb with any cut of steak. II just wanted to indulge and you satisfied all our cravings. A super wonderful recipe and I would highly recommend!!
