    My husband's most favorite meal! This recipe from Paula Dean is one of the easiest and tastiest that I have made!
    didnt like. i think it could use some wine to. sorry
    This dish was divine! I used shallots instead of onions and added about 2 tablespoons Cognac to the sauce - wonderful.
    I use the shallots as well  
    This recipe is delicious!!! I have made it three times and its better everytime, the meat is expensive but well worth it!!! I think il make some more today, my mouth is watering right now. I make mines with homeade mashed potatoes soooo good
    This is a very good quick version for "Steak Diane" and instead of keeping it on the stove top. I place the sauce & steaks in a pan in the oven and let it cook for about 15mins at a temp of 275....It is simply delicious, if you are not fond of butter then use less and it still turns out to be quite a delightful dish!
    This was delicious! We ate every bite, the dogs were begging us for tastes and the house smelled marvelous afterward..
    I loved this recipe. I have used it numerous times, and it works really well with pork chops to!!
    not much sauce, needs less butter and red wine.
    Way too much butter! The sauce was very watery, or rather, buttery, not thick at all. I deleted it out of my recipe box..will not be making it again.
    I think I remember this show and she used 2 TBSP butter and some olive oil to the pan before adding the steak. It seems to me that the people on here that don't like as much butter could use only as much olive oil as necessary in place of the butter. I, myself, love the flavor that real butter adds to a steak recipe.
     This is a delicious and very quick way to serve something that your family will be proud of:-)
    I used a little less butter. ( sorry Paula) and added a little wine. It was quick, easy and very tasty.
    This was very simple to make and the whole family loved it!!!
    This is a really good, quick meal. For all the "Steak Diane" snobs out there - the name of the episode was "Quick Fix". None of these dishes were meant to be "THE" original recipe but a quicker, still delicious, version of it.
     As for the amount of butter I think Paula used great restraint in using so little. The "intelligent reason" for that much butter: FLAVOR. When you come to the South we'll greet you with "Welcome to the South - here's your pound of butter and quart of cream" - ENJOY!!!.
    yikes butter queen at it again
    I love greasy food, but this was way too greasy even for me. The grease completely drowned out the taste of the tenderloin. I suggest cutting the butter amount to at least half and adding lots more seasoning.
    Great Steak Diane recipe--reminded us of a delicious version we've had at a great restaurant. Very easy to execute as well.
    We loved this one. Place it over rice and it was wonderful will make it again.
    My husband and I love it, easy to make and super tasty. With this great dish there is no need to go out to a restaurant!
    I saw this one while I was working out at the gym. Stopped at the market on the way home - and it was a big hit. I liked that it was so easy to prepare and didn't lack in the tender and tasty department.
    I prepared this meal last night and was surprised at how easy it was to prepare. After I prepared the meal, I sat down to eat it and was even more delighted that it tasted so good. To enhance my meal, I included a glass of Marlot.
    This was pretty tasty but not phenomenal. We made twice the sauce and served it with egg noodles
    This is a very tasty recipe. I don't imagine anyone would be disappointed with the final results of this recipe unless they have actually HAD real Steak Diane. This would not be what they were expecting. This recipe, while simple and certainly delicious, is NOT Steak Diane. Thank you, though, Paula..
    I LOVE steak dianneand when I was reading the recipe I was wondering how it would turn out nice and creamy. Well it doesn't because this isn't steak dianne. The sauce is good but the name is misleading.
    O.M.G. This recipe is easy and tasted like I was eating at a 5 star restaurant! What a wonderful mixture of flavors!
    This is one of those standby recipes that always delivers.
    The steak Diane was simple and my husband and I love it. Thanks Paula!
    As much as I love Paula's recipes, this one didn't measure up. It was too greasy. I'll go to a recipe containing beef stock next time.
    What a wonderful recipe!! Everyone loved it!!! I will be sure to make this again!!!! Thanks Paula!!!!
    Jeffery from santa rosa.....
      If you had paid attention to Paula during her show she did not claim it to be the "traditional" steak diane... Her quick version
      By the way Paula, it was delish!!!!
