Ingredients

1/2 tbsp peppercorns 5 g
260 g beef, top sirloin
2 tbsp butter, unsalted 28 g
3 tbsp Cognac 45 mL
3 tbsp whipping cream 35% 45 mL
salt [optional]

Before you start

For proper cooking all the way through the steak, it is important to let it stand at room temperature at least ½ hour before cooking.

Preheat the oven to the lowest temperature to keep the steaks and the plates warm while cooking the sauce.

Method

  1. Crush half of the peppercorns using a rolling pin. Coat both sides of steaks with the crushed peppercorns, pressing them down on into the surface of the meat.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the steaks 1 min per side, add salt, then remove them from the skillet and set them aside on a warmed plate in the oven.
  3. Deglaze the skillet with Cognac 1 min, then pour in the cream and add the remaining peppercorns. Cook 2-3 min over medium heat with stirring using a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape the bottom of the pan. Put the steaks back into the skillet and cook 1-2 more min, turning them once.
  4. Tranfer the steaks to the warmed plates, spoon the sauce over the top, and serve.
