Don’t feel you need to be limited to steak to accompany this Diane Sauce.  It would be just as delicious with lamb seared on the barbecue or roast chicken.  If you feel it’s a little heavy for chicken, just stir through a half cup of white wine to lighten up the consistency and flavour.

Ever wondered why a lovely rich sauce like this is called Diane Sauce?

According to Australian Food Timeline, there is some dispute about the origins of Steak Diane but it was almost certainly introduced to Australia by Tony Clerici, maitre d’ at Romano’s restaurant in Sydney. Clerici claimed to have invented the dish at his Mayfair restaurant in 1938 and named it in honour of Lady Diana Cooper, formerly Lady Diana Manners, the society beauty of her time. He brought Steak Diane with him when he returned to Sydney in 1939.

Well wherever and however Diane Sauce was invented, we’re grateful that is was.  We can’t think of a more delicious pouring sauce for any meal!
