happy cooking.






Ingredients for 2 portions:



For the sauce mixture:


1 generous tablespoon Dijon mustard


2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce


1 teaspoon tomato paste


pinch cayenne pepper


1/2 cup demi-glace (Or substitute 2 cups rich, low-sodium or salt-free chicken broth. It will take longer to reduce, but will still produce a great sauce. Just be careful with the salt.)



2 teaspoons vegetable oil


two (8-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, fully trimmed, pounded to 1/2-inch thick (top sirloin will also work nicely here)


kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


1 tablespoon unsalted butter


3 tablespoons finely minced shallots


1/4 cup Cognac or brandy


1/4 cup heavy cream


2 teaspoon sliced fresh chives
