Ingredients

    1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    6 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed (about 1 inch thick)

Directions

Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper evenly over steaks. Add steaks to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan; cover and keep warm.

Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add shallots, and cook 2 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add water and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Spoon sauce over steaks, and sprinkle with parsley.

    Ceiteag, you can just leave the Sherry out. Add some water or broth to replace the liquid in the recipe. - 1/18/09

    This sounds really good. I agree with Gecko140....where are the flames? Steak Diane is always "flamed" before serving. To the alcoholics,some people do drink in moderation,everything isn't always about you, the recipes are for the general population not every single person. sorry to be so blunt - 2/14/10

    My only comment would be regarding the potatoes.....DON'T buy the "prepared" ones - make your own!
    I cut mine into wedges or fries, and put them into about 2 TBSP olive oil that I have added garlic and onion powder, lemon pepper, and just a dash of chili powder and bake them! - 5/1/08

    I made this last night using a loin strip steak. It was excellent. The steak was tender (and I usually broil or grill steaks) and the sauce was delicious. I even put some on my sweet potato. I might try this sauce for other recipes, too. - 1/22/08

    This was an excellent sauce on top of the steaks. I had never heard of shallots before. They were good (kinda a mix between onion and garlic) and a learning experience. - 5/6/07

    The sauce was super. I don't eat red meat much (too much cholesterol) but it was great over pounded out turkey breast. Turkey Diane. - 2/14/10

    This was a very good sauce. We actually barbecued the steaks and then spooned the sauce on top. Everyone just loved it. - 5/6/07

    This sounds great! I am sorry that some people can't have the Sherry, but that is life. Just do what you have to and not tempt yourself. We all have to sub some things for others. I will try this and it sounds wonderful. - 2/15/10

    Sorry, had to add my 2cents here, but if a person doesn't drink because s/he is a recovering alcoholic, it may very well mean that they can NOT keep even cooking sherry on hand. - 1/18/09

    I think I'll give this a try. Sounds great! And in regards to the person that doesn't drink. It doesn't mean you can't have cooking sherry on hand. - 1/18/09

  • My husband is a recovering alcoholic (10 years sober0 and I still have a beer if I want....but I see no reason why such a big deal was made out of the Sherry! Good grief don`t make the recipe! or if you feel compelled and feel you must make it, change to something else! - 11/20/12
