One simple step to signature beef menu items.
For each serving of Dijon Steak au Poivre, coat an 8-10 oz. strip steak with coarsely ground peppercorns, and sear in 1 tsp. Of hot clarified butter until slightly less than desired doneness is achieved; remove from pan and keep warm. Deglaze the pan with 1 Tbsp. Of brandy, add 3 Tbsp. Of beef stock, 3 Tbsp. Of heavy cream and 1/2 Tbsp. Of Dijon Mustard, bring to a simmer and reduce by one quarter. Serve steak over sauce on a warm dinner plate.
To make Dijon gravy for an Open Face Steak Sandwich: add 1/2 Tbsp. Of A.1. Bold Steak Sauce and 1/2 cup of Dijon Mustard to 2-1/2 cups of beef gravy. Ladle 2 oz. or more over an open face, sliced steak sandwich atop buttered toast points.
The secret to great barbecue is the sauce. To make a Beef Barbecue Sandwich with sizzle, combine, in a bowl, 2 cups of Dijon Mustard and 1 qt. Of hickory-flavored barbecue sauce; cover and keep warm for service.
For an unforgettable Corned Beef, add the flavor of Dijon mustard to traditional horseradish. In a bowl, combine 2 cups of mayonnaise, 1 cup of Dijon Mustard and 1/4 cup of prepared horseradish; mix well, cover and refrigerate.
