Eileen, this is a great sauce to serve over beef filet so I think it would be great with prime rib also:

Beef Filets with Cognac-Cream Sauce (From Williams Sonoma)

Spice mixture
3/4 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

The Sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1 shallot (or small onion); minced
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoon Cognac
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup beef broth or stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
Cayenne pepper (optional)

In a small bowl spice mixture and set aside.

In frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the shallot, sauté until softened about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the parsley and Cognac. Return to heat and simmer for another 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the Dijon mustard, tomato paste, beef broth and reserved spice mixture. Continue to simmer while stirring often to reduce the sauce by half, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the cream and cayenne to taste. Add any accumulated juices from the steaks to the sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Since the Cognac is a cream sauce, either of these would be a good second sauce.

Multiple as necessary

Brown Butter Caper Sauce
Makes 2 servings

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsps butter
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsps drained capers

In a small heavy saucepan, cook the olive oil and butter over moderately high heat, swirling the pan ocassionally, until the foam subsides and the butter is nut-brown. Remove from the heat and swirl in the lemon juice and capers. Spoon over fillet and serve hot.

Mushroom-Whiskey Sauce
Makes 2 servings
Source: Mayo Clinic
Serve over broiled or grilled steaks

1 tsp trans-free margarine
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 ounces sliced Shitake mushrooms
2 ounces button mushrooms
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 cup whiskey

In a small sauce, pan, heat the margarine over medium heat. Add the garlic, mushrooms, they and rosemary. Saute lightly until the mushroom are tender, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully add the whiskey (be careful not to flame). Stir the sauce for another minute and serve over steaks.

Eileen, This first recipe I've made often since Mique shared it with us a few years ago.

The sauce really compliments the tenderloin without over powering.
