What You'll Need

  • 4 (6-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks (1-inch-thick)

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 3/4 cups beef broth
  • 3/4 cup brandy
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or dried rosemary
  • 1 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese (See Note)

What to Do

  1. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add steaks, and cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium rare or to desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks to a serving platter; keep warm.
  2. Add beef broth, brandy, and rosemary to skillet, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of pan. Bring to a boil; boil 5 to 6 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about half. Pour over steaks. Sprinkle with cheese.
