2 boneless beef top loin steaks (1 inch thick, about 1 1/4 lbs)
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 pound small mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1 tablespoon brandy
1/4 cup half and half
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add mushrooms and shallots; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender. Remove.
Wipe skillet out with a paper towel. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Combine lemon peel and pepper; press onto beef steaks. Place steaks in skillet; cook 12-15 minutes, while turning for medium rare. Remove and keep warm.
Add brandy to the skillet; cook and stir to deglaze the pan. Stir in half and half, lemon juice, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in mushroom mixture; heat through.
