So it’s Valentine’s Day again and you are searching at the last minute for that perfect dinner for your significant other. If you want to “play” Julia Child without all the heavy duty work, this is the meal. A quick stop at the local market and about 20 minutes in the kitchen and your will have a restaurant quality dinner. Finish it off with a few large strawberries dipped in melted chocolate chips and enjoy the rest of your evening.
The Boss is Back (Distinctive Dinners)
salt and pepper to taste
10.5 oz can
Flatten steaks to 3/4 thickness by placing in plastic bag and hitting them with a mallet or pan. Place on plate, drip soy sauce on them and salt and pepper to taste.
Mix consommé, Dijon mustard and cornstarch in bowl, set aside.
Add 1 Tb of butter to pan. Heat pan until butter bubbles, add steaks, cook 2-3 minutes per side, and remove from pan and cover.
Add consommé mixture to pan and remaining butter, stir, making sure to get all the bits from the bottom of the pan. Add steaks back to the pan.
At this point if you are feeling adventuresome, remove pan from stove, add cognac (no more than 2 oz) and light with a long match. Very impressive, be careful.
Plate, drizzle gravy over steaks and serve.
