WOW!

Thank you Ina! Another Delicious Recipe. I must admit I added a bit more cognac. This recipe is a keeper. It just works. The whole family loved it.

Thank you Ina.

Did you use a meat thermometer and did you cover the steaks with aluminum foiled to rest for 10 minutes while you prepared the sauce?

Hi Chaddavis, No your steaks should not have flattened out. I use three inch thick beef tenderloins from Costco and they are perfect for this recipe. This is the best steak I have ever had. Delicious!
