Ribeye Steak Diane...lots of pix

My wife and I vacationed to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon this past week.  We toured the Hoover Dam, did a VERY small amount of gambling (I hate gambling...I'm too cheap and conservative for that... ;) ), saw a couple of shows, drove out to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and also took a helicopter tour through the canyon.  We had an absolute blast!!!  But, I'm glad to be back home now.  The time change messed with my head, we missed our dogs, and I missed Big Green Egging of course.  :)  Here is a shot of the Grand Canyon that I took while on the helicopter (I know the first pic is Off Topic, but it's cool so I thought I'd share it anyway):

To get back On Topic, I missed using the Big Green Egg this week...so tonight, I couldn't wait to fire it up.  My wife wanted Ribeyes, so I thought I'd shake things up a bit and make Steak Diane using Ribeye Steaks.  I looked up Emeril Lagasse's recipe and went with that for the most part.

I did give the steaks a quick sear outside of the CI skillet at first, which was different than the recipe called for.  Then I took them off and placed them aside.  I like a good sear, but the recipe called for cooking the sauce at only a medium high temp, so after searing and removing the steaks, I cranked the heat down for a couple minutes, then added the CI skillet.

image

 

First, butter is melted and the Shallots and Garlic get happy...  Then the Mushrooms are added in.  After they go for a couple minutes, the Brandy is added.  :) 

image

 

Had to be careful and tilt the CI skillet away so I wouldn't get bit by the ignited Brandy.  :)

Then everything else gets tossed in to thicken.  The steaks get tossed in again toward the end to finish cooking.

Served up with a Loaded Baked Potato.

The flavor of the sauce was unbelievable.  I will definitely make it again.  Already thinking about how I will incorporate it into other things, like burgers.  ;)

    I've been wanting to do scenic stuff when I visit Vegas, but poker typically has other plans for me. Lol

    Nice cook! Great to see an actual classic recipe here that utilizes a sauce other than barbecue sauce. Well done!

    Out-standing Dyal!!

    I'm curious... How did you get some of the "flaming" pix? They can't be flash, did you have a tripod?

    Great looking cook. Headed to Vegas for the big game and the Hoover Dam. I have a feeling the blackjack table will get to know me very well at the Venitian.

    Thanks guys!

    Jim, my wife took the flame pix with the flash off, while I was handling the skillet. We always take a bunch of pix and hope there are one or two good ones. :) Wish I knew more about photography, as that is something I enjoy too.

    Mickey, I think it's still open. The lights appeared on anyway. :) The drive to the South Rim was very scenic. It was about a 4 hour drive, but worth every minute!

    Dyal, what did you use for the "1/4 cup reduced veal stock"?
    That really looks good.

    Thanks! I didn't make the homemade veal stock... Just used 1/4 cup beef stock instead. Figured it was close enough. ;)
  • Holy dang, that looks awesome!

    Alright, fillet medallions aquired. Needed some brandy and did not realize yesterday that my cave had no supply of brandy. :(

    Remedial measures have been underway.

    You got me thinking. Have Brandy now to cook with, but the last Brandy to drink was Cherry Brandy back in the drive-in days :x
