  1. Turn off the heat (if using a gas hob) when you add the brandy, or it may ignite and catch you unawares.
  2. Steaks can be pan fried or grilled, then sliced into 1-2cm strips and then added to the sauce. Otherwise they can be cut into strips and stir-fried quickly.
  3. If the sauce thickens too much, add a little water to let down the sauce, do not add cream.
