A note about serious food allergies

Named in honor of Diana, the Roman goddess of the hunt, “Steak Diane” celebrates a quality cut of meat by bathing it in a luscious, Sherry-spiked sauce of pan juices with cream, cremini mushrooms, and a hint of Dijon mustard. Traditionally made with venison, our version uses tender flat-iron steaks. To make this a meal truly fit for a mythological deity, we round it out with buttery whipped potatoes and roasted asparagus.

  • Pepper
  • 1 Baking Sheet

  • 1 Medium Pot

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients
    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel potatoes and cut into 1" chunks. Bring a medium pot with potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until tender, 12-16 minutes. While potatoes simmer, trim woody ends off asparagus. Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. Peel and mince shallot. Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Asparagus

    Roast the Asparagus

    Place asparagus on prepared baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in hot oven, 5 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully move asparagus to one side to make room for steaks. Asparagus will finish cooking in a later step. While asparagus roasts, sear steaks.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Steaks
    3

    Cook the Steaks

    Season steaks on both sides with Worcestershire. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Remove steaks from Worcestershire, letting excess drip off. Reserve Worcestershire. Add steaks to hot pan and sear undisturbed until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Flip steaks, and place in empty space on baking sheet. Pour reserved Worcestershire over. Roast until asparagus is tender and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Remove cooked steaks to a plate, tent with foil, and rest at least 5 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While steaks roast, finish potatoes.

  • Step 4 - Make the Potatoes

    Make the Potatoes

    Drain cooked potatoes in a colander. Return to pot and add half the butter, half the cream (reserve remaining of both for sauce), ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Mash until smooth. Cover and set aside.

  • Step 5 - Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium heat. Add remaining butter, shallot, and mushrooms to hot pan and stir occasionally until aromatic, 3-4 minutes. Add demi-glace, ½ cup water, Dijon mustard, sherry, and remaining cream and stir occasionally until sauce is creamy and slightly thickened, 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner.
