I like to serve with our prime rib on Easter Id also like to serve another fancy sauce too! Can you share a T&T...TIA
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)
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
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, sautÃ© 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.
YUM! looks like a good one
Since the Cognac is a cream sauce, either of these would be a good second sauce.

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.
