Impress The Ladies By Learning How To Make Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Perfect Steak’ With Cognac Flambé
Do you want a to impress the ladies with a delicious steak that looks like it would be served in a fancy Michelin Star restaurant? Well, Gordon Ramsay got you. Not only does this delectable steak look like a James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef made it, but the best part is that it’s super easy to make. Ramsay shared his recipe for his perfect steak with a cognac flambé and it looks mouthwatering.
Gordon’s perfect steak with cognac flambé is basically a dish called Steak Diane. You would think the dish would be a French recipe since it has a cream sauce, but it is actually American cuisine. Wikipedia states that Steak Diane was “probably invented in mid-20th century New York as part of the fad for tableside-flambéed dishes, named after the Roman god Diana, goddess of the hunt.”
A recipe for Gordon Ramsay’s Steak Diane is posted on Epicurious and it is very similar to the dish that the celebrity chef made in his video, but with the addition of Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard and is missing the sprig of rosemary and thyme.
