Steak Diane

Have you ever made it or tried it?

I never have, but it looks really good. Very old school.

I'd like to attempt this maybe over the weekend.

Any special tips to share?

That video could have been so much shorter.

He really talks too much.

The guy spent nearly five minutes talking about cutting and patting down his steak to make it dry. I forwarded past all of that.

His sauce really did look good, though.

However, I'd probably leave the steaks cut thick.

He cut them way too thin, and they looked tough and dry.

I used to make it. You don't need to cook the steak for long, mine never got dry. It's easier to slice the meat thin enough if it's about half frozen.

I never make it now because my partner hates mushrooms.

It's delicious

I use porto.

Any sauce with mushrooms, cream and cognac is a winner in my book!

I’ve made the recipe by Emeril Lagasse. It’s really good.

I need a vegan version please.

Just use a steak-sized slice of firm tofu, or even a cauliflower "steak," R7.

You'd probably have to use vegetable stock and some vegan cream for the sauce, too.

Shut up, r7, and eat your soy jerky.

r5 I agree 100%. You can't go wrong with all three of those.

It’s “Continental,” you know. Strictly white tablecloth.

Steak diane is a cook at the table dish where the waiter brings over a cart with a gas element and cooks everything in front of you.

Is that still done anywhere? We used to do it at this restaurant I worked at as part of my highschool co-op class in the 90’s.

Owner was a piece of garbage.

Chef was sexy though.

Melvyn's Restaurant in Palm Springs still does table side service of Steak Diane.

It's very old school and charming.

Cost is $68.

I watched quite a few of that YouTuber's videos and then got tired of him.

First of all, he refuses to give weight measurements. He says "you're boring" if you want to use weight measurements.

Second, he uses his tween son as the arbiter of how a dish came out. He calls his wife "Mama" like he's Mike Pence.

Yes, tweens can have a good palate, but his son has certain dislikes and will knock off points for a dish if it has something on his list of dislikes.

Not hard at all. I make it every few months.
