Recipe Critique - Steak with Apple Almond Pan Sauce

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I threw together a recipe last night that I would love some critiquing of. The family really seemed to enjoy it, but it was my own concoction. If anyone has any suggestions as to how I could perhaps improve either the flavor or technique, I'd really appreciate it!

 

Steak with Apple Pan Sauce

Apples

2 fresh apples, cored and chopped 

1 heaping tsp light brown sugar

2 tbsp pulverized almond slices

1/4 cup brandy

 

Steak

4 strip steaks

1 cup beef stock

Salt & Pepper

 

Directions

Completely dry steaks with paper towels, sprinkle salt and pepper. 

Sauté steaks in 2 tbsp butter & 2 tbsp olive oil.

 

Meanwhile, sauté apples, brown sugar, and half the almonds in 2 tbsp butter.

After apples have softened, add 1/4 cup brandy. Continue cooking for a few more minutes. 

 

When steaks have finished cooking, drain grease. Deglaze pan with beef stock over highest heat. When stock has become syrupy, remove from heat and swirl in 3 tbsp butter and apple mixture. 

 

Top steaks with sauce, garnish with remaining almond pieces.

IDK, Pete... had you said "pork chops" I'd be salivating.  Sounds too sweet and fruity for beef to me.  But if your family loved it then you were a total success!
