Kcal: 550 kcal | Servings: 4


4 beef steaks (such as ribeye, filet mignon, or sirloin)

1 cup brandy

2 tablespoons olive oil 

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup beef broth

2 cups sliced mushrooms (such as cremini or button) 

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Salt and pepper to taste


1. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides.

2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they reach your desired doneness. Remove the steaks from the skillet and keep warm.

3. Reduce the heat to medium, add the butter to the skillet, and sauté the onions until translucent, about 2-3 minutes.

4. Add the mushrooms and garlic, and cook until the mushrooms are golden brown, about 5 minutes.

5. Pour the brandy into the skillet. Carefully ignite the brandy using a long lighter or match to flambé. Let the flames burn off, which should take about 1-2 minutes.

6. Once the flames have subsided, add the beef broth and heavy cream to the skillet. Stir well and let the sauce simmer for about 5-7 minutes, until it thickens slightly.

7. Return the steaks to the skillet, spooning the mushroom sauce over them. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to warm the steaks through.

8. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.


Use caution when flambéing. Ensure there are no flammable materials nearby and always ignite the alcohol away from yourself and others.

You can substitute the brandy with cognac or whiskey for a different flavor profile.

For a lighter version, use half-and-half instead of heavy cream.

Serve with mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a fresh salad for a complete meal.
