Who can help? my parents often eat out and have "Diane Sauce" with the meat that they order, this is usually cream based, It is not "Steak Diane" its called Diane Sauce! I want to make it for them at home but cant find a recipe, i dont want to buy it ready made as it is usually mistaken for peppercorn sauce, but diane sauce doesnt have peppercorns. anyone help?

steak diane according to the professionals has worcester sauce redwine and tomatoes in it, this sauce is cream coloured has white onions in it and brandy, its remains cream coloured!
i'll bow to your superior knowledge. the recipe i use for steak diane has neither tomato or red wine in it, but does have white onions and brandy, amongst other things. the only thing it doesn't have is the cream. however, i'm not a professional, this is just the one i use,from one of my recipe books.
the important thing is that you and your parents enjoy it, which i hope you do.
Steak Diane was one of the 70's classic cook at the table dishes that flamed so Brandy is a dead cert. Worcester sauce as well as where would the 60s/70s have been without Worcester sauce? Knowing what I know now onions/shallots would also be there, and I distinctly rememebr the mushrooms as, in these days, I was a hater of anything mushroom like so that was the killer for actuallly ordering it. Tomatoes would also have stopped me then (how things have changed <g>) and I have no recollection of them being anywhere near it... the only problem I had was with the mushrooms. Pretty sure I remember a final white/cream like sauce but also have an inkling some weren't so guess the cream was perhaps 'optional' or interchangeable with the wine... though wine AND brandy???
What about trying a peak at the book "The Prawn Cocktail Years" for some more help.
ken, i agree with you. no steak diane recipe i've come across has either tomato or red wine in it. some have mushrooms, some have cream, some have brandy. and some don't have any of these.
at the end of the day , it doesn't really matter though. it's what you like that matters.
