Last night Alex and I made Steak Diane and these Cloverleaf Rolls from One Perfect Bite.

Ingredients:
  • 2 beef steaks
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • Olive oil
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • Butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Dijon mustard
  • Cognac
  • heavy cream
  • Flat leaf parsley
Directions:
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the steaks to flatten and cut off any excess fat
  • Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet
  • Brown the steaks on both sides for about a minute per side
  • Set steaks aside to rest
  • Add more olive oil if needed
  • Saute shallots until soft
  • Add mushrooms and table spoon of butter and heat for about a minute
  • Add garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard.
  • Heat through for a minute
  • Turn up heat and tilt pan away from you
  • Pour in the cognac into the far end and allow it to ignite.  (we has to ignite with a match since we have an electric stove)
  • Once the alcohol has burned off, swirle the juice around the pan
  • Add cream and allow the sauce to thicken
  • Turn down heat
  • Add steaks back into the pan
  • Cook until done to your taste.
  • Add chopped parsley
  • Serve
