My journey to making this superb recipe for tonight's dinner involved being initially drawn to it by Boomette's enticing photograph, and having I'mPat translating what "New York Strip Steak" is here! Then with "N" up in All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag, I grabbed the chance to tag this recipe. I was halving the recipe for two so got my butcher to cut two strips of porterhousee steak and (as a mushroom lover) with a generous interpretation of what half of two pounds of mushrooms meant, I was ready to go! Wonderfully clear instructions and this dish was just superb! I have only very rarely used brandy in cooking but after discovering the mushroom component of this recipe...WOW! We are not big steak eaters, but enjoyed this dish immensely. But I will be making mushrooms this way again - SOON! Garlic and thyme are just so perfect with mushrooms, but the brandy and cream: a superb taste sensation. I used low-fat cream as I've always found one can cut calories there without any appreciable loss of flavour and richness, and I needed to do that as I plan to make these often. Thanks for sharing yet another fantastic recipe, Lainey!Reply
DH cooked the steak on the bbq (which was 1 hour in a marinade with Montreal Spice Blend, soy sauce and olive oil). And I cooked the mushrooms in the skillet, followed all the steps. At the end, when the sauce with the mushrooms were ready, I added the juice of the cooked steak in it to give it more flavour. Nothing was wasted. It was so good. Even DS liked the mushrooms. Thanks Lainey. Made for Zaar Star GameReply
