Steak Diane is a gourmet treat at the finest restaurants, but it can be quite expensive. Here is a version using ground beef patties with a similar rich mushroom wine sauce. If you cannot use wine, you may substitute strong beef broth.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef (chuck for flavor or sirloin for lower fat)
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, divided use
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, divided use
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots or sweet onion
  • 4 button mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red wine (may substitute strong beef broth)
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons chopped chives for garnish


Gently combine ground beef, 1 teaspoon of the Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Form into 4 patties, each 1-inch thick.

Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter and sear ground beef patties until browned on each side. Remove to a platter and keep warm.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon of butter to the same skillet along with shallots and mushrooms. Saute until most of the liquid has evaporated and vegetables are soft. Carefully add red wine and stir often, scraping up browned bits, for 2 minutes until reduced. Stir in Dijon mustard, lemon juice, remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, and cream. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Taste and adjust salt and pepper, if need be.

Return beef patties, with any accumulated juices, to the sauce, turning to coat. Heat until warmed through, sprinkle with chives, and serve with pan sauce.

Yield: 4 servings

We didn't have any Worcestershire sauce left so I added HP Steak sauce, a few herbs, spices and garlic to the mest and that tasted great. On cooking sadly they broke up in the pan, but I was able to price it together enough and served with the sauce which was quite delicious. I had also added a tablespoon of caramalized onions that we got at Chrismas, more of a preserve but again the flavor was great. I served it with a mushroom rice and it was all so good, my husband asked if there was any left as he would take it to work next day, but it was too late.
