Steak Diane

From Cookipedia

Steak Diane was the height of fashion in grand dining rooms across America. The highpoint of the meal came when a waiter in jacket and bow-tie flamed a diner's sirloin table-side before his very eyes! There are a number of variations on Steak Diane, but most call for butter, shallots, mustard, cream, Worcestershire sauce, brandy, and a match.

The dish is said to be named for Diane, the Roman Goddess of hunting; many game dishes also use her name.

This classic 70's dinner party dish is definitely still worth making because it has the very best ingredients. Probably needs a bottle of Blue Nun and a prawn cocktail too!
