Add the peppers, onion, mushrooms and garlic and saute but do not over cook. Deglaze the pan with the brandy. Add beef stock, heavy cream and dijon mustard.

This is also very good on chicken, seafood and even on burgers. Just change the stock for what you are making it for.

Any time that I see one of Mr. Hansen's recipes here on food geeks I try to make it. This Steak Diane is very good. My wife and I have had it before but this is the best so far.

I made this Steak Diane last year for my husband for Valetine's Day. He liked is so much that he asked me to make it again this year. It was very good and fast to make. Some recipes just take too long and I don't think worth it in the long run.

When I made this for Valentines day, my wife was so happy. She said "This is even better than restraunt steaks." I thought the same way.

I make steak diane in 15 minutes. I use strips of fillet steak, finley chopped onions,finley chopped mushrooms,dried oregano, cracked steak pepper,course sea salt, and the best parts are: dry white wine and fresh double cream. Just fry all the above except last two, for 5 minutes, then add wine, cook for 10 minutes, add cream last, bring it to simmer and serve, with broken french baguette. ABSOLUTLEY FANTASTIC.

I made this recipe as the main course for Valentine's Day. It was a hit!!! I loved it! It was definitely restaurant quality -- something I'd gladly pay $25-$30 for.
