    I won’t be able to leave my link on Friday, so I’m posting early!

      My first week here and I am very excited to join the group! I just made this for the family and also set off the smoke alarm but the steak was worth it :) Overall, I loved the steak but the rest of the family doesn’t love pepper as much as I do so next time I would reduce the pepper or change the seasoning. The sauce was great and I served it with roasted potatoes and asparagus (no need to risk setting off the alarm again with frites).

        My first week, also. My husband loves sauces over meats, so I have another one in my arsenal, now. He liked the steak and didn’t seem to mind that we own yet another accessory in our kitchen – a cast iron skillet. We just had our kitchen cabinets refinished, so I opted not to flame the cognac.

    All that meat and Sarawak peppers made me a bit hot under the collar! But hey, some papaya frites helped cool things down… Interesting recipe, this one.

  3. Allison April 28, 2011 at 3:38 PM #

    Oh Dorie you’ve out done yourself with this one! I’ll be forever indebted!

  4. Cher April 28, 2011 at 4:15 PM #

    Steak is my guilty pleasure. I am both guilty and oh so pleased…

  5. josefa April 28, 2011 at 5:41 PM #

    i especially love the contrast between the tender steak and the creamy, sweet sauce.

  6. Miss Kris Kitchen April 28, 2011 at 6:18 PM #

    I totally cheated on this recipe…but I was inspired to cook steak and fries because of Dorie’s recipe…but it is sooooo beautiful here in AZ that I just had to cook outside and so….well, that’s the way it goes sometimes……..

    After a few weeks’ hiatus, I’m back again! WHEW!

    And delicious steak, too. I used ribeyes ‘cuz they were on sale at my favourite meat market. Can’t wait to have the leftovers tomorrow! Maybe while I’m watching the Royal Wedding!

  8. cdcooks April 28, 2011 at 6:36 PM #

    We loved this recipe! This was an amazing sauce and so easy! Oh, and I finally made the pancetta green beans, too, and they were delicious as well.

  9. stephsbitebybite April 28, 2011 at 7:09 PM #

    Best steak recipe ever! Loved FLAMING my sauce!

  10. tricia April 28, 2011 at 7:23 PM #

    Fantastic – we adored this steak recipe. We are also posting a special family recipe from Nana this week as well. Enjoy !

  11. StephIrey April 28, 2011 at 7:25 PM #

    Loved, loved, loved this at our house! With frites and all!

  12. jemangepdx April 28, 2011 at 8:26 PM #

    Here’s mine:

    Just had it for dinner a couple of hours ago. Wow! Delicious! On the side – Baked Rosemary Pommes Frites and sauteed broccolini. Oh, and a bottle of cabernet! ;-)

  13. Genkinaonna April 28, 2011 at 8:44 PM #

    Well it’s almost Friday, and I finally have an actual website up, not just a Facebook link! I’m thinking I want to try the cognac sauce next time too…

    • Cher April 29, 2011 at 3:19 PM #

      Love the new toy! Enjoy it.

    • Adriana April 29, 2011 at 3:44 PM #

      I couldn’t find the comments link in your post, but your toys look like so much fun!

    • tricia April 29, 2011 at 5:59 PM #

      I couldn’t find the place to comment on your blog either, but your post looked amazing. Great job and now I want to go straight to Costco :)

    We used steak from our first cow that we raised. And it was good.

  15. Pam@FromApplesToZucchini April 29, 2011 at 1:06 AM #

    I am so excited – this is my first week! We loved this dish – I used a less expensive cut of beef as well, and substituted red wine for the cognac, but it was delicious! Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

  16. fakeginger April 29, 2011 at 2:39 AM #

    This was probably my favorite FFwD yet:

  17. creolekid April 29, 2011 at 2:54 AM #

    A wonderful preparation, and it was just in time for Easter. Looking forward to this and many variations. Cheers!

  18. SisBoom April 29, 2011 at 3:05 AM #

    Whats not to love? All this and flame too!

  19. Adriana April 29, 2011 at 3:13 AM #

    I managed to tear myself off the Royal Wedding to finish my post!

  20. anderlani1 April 29, 2011 at 4:05 AM #

    Good morning, all! This is my first week as a member of FFWD, and I’m looking forward to getting to know everybody. I really enjoyed participating. Can’t wait to check out everyone else’s stories!

    • LW April 29, 2011 at 3:43 PM #

      Welcome to the group! Glad you joined us. :)

  21. Kayte April 29, 2011 at 4:17 AM #

    I can think of lots of uses for this sauce! All delicious. Here’s my post:

  22. sanya living April 29, 2011 at 4:51 AM #

    Had so much fun with this week’s recipe!

  23. Anne-Marie April 29, 2011 at 4:54 AM #

    Just so-so. Looked and smelled lovely but the flavors disappointed!

  24. Newfinmysoup April 29, 2011 at 5:08 AM #

    Lovely dinner! I made Pommes Souffle “fries” and steamed asparagus on the side. And a bottle of red, of course! Have a great weekend.

  25. Pachecopatty April 29, 2011 at 5:16 AM #

    Wow,wow,wow, smoke, flames and the most flavorful steak with a beautiful sauce;-)

  26. heather.nelson April 29, 2011 at 5:50 AM #

    Looking forward to next weeks recipe

  27. mygreatmenu April 29, 2011 at 5:52 AM #

    Super easy and quick. I love a recipe that’s easy to modify for my little ones. My five year old loved the sauce but the steak was a little too rare for him.

  28. RedsKitchenDiaries April 29, 2011 at 6:37 AM #

    FRENCH Friday???

    NOOO!!! Today is BRITISH Friday!!! Sorry, folks, but I just couldn’t do steaks today:

  29. PheMom April 29, 2011 at 8:19 AM #

    We really loved this one and I had to embellish just a bit with bacon, mushrooms and of course made the frites too! Wonderful!

  30. thesavourypage April 29, 2011 at 8:40 AM #

    I face the flames and my fear all for a delicious recipe. Plus its my first one!

  31. kudoskitchen April 29, 2011 at 9:45 AM #

    I made the men in my house very happy with this dish!

  32. Bakeawaywithme April 29, 2011 at 12:09 PM #

    A wonderful, simple to fix dinner!! We loved it!!

  33. tammycirceo April 29, 2011 at 4:04 PM #

    Three weeks in a row that I haven’t made the dish during the week it was ‘assigned’. I felt I could still write, though, since I’ve made it before. ;) I only bent the rules a little …

  34. Connie April 29, 2011 at 6:42 PM #

    I missed the last couple of weeks. I’m glad I did not miss this week.

  35. Diethood April 29, 2011 at 8:26 PM #

    Just in the nick of time! It’s almost Saturday :)

    Loved loved loved this… pan-fried is my new way to cook steak!

  36. onewetfoot April 29, 2011 at 9:57 PM #

    Oh, this one is going to happen again soon:

  37. laurcl April 30, 2011 at 4:56 AM #

    Excellent way to cook a steak. Almost 7 year old loved it too – peppercorns & all!

  38. Linda April 30, 2011 at 4:29 PM #

    This week there were 2 fabulous chefs in my kitchen

    it was the perfect storm!

  39. stoutkitty May 4, 2011 at 5:32 AM #

    I did mine a la Bourguignonne. Was so good.

  40. Guileless Gourmande May 26, 2011 at 4:54 PM #

    So proud of myself for not overcooking the meat!
