This peppercorn sauce can obviously be served with any meat of your choice but is really elevated when made in the same pan as the steaks.
180ml beef stock
45ml canned green peppercorns
Cook your steak in a cast-iron pan, remove the meat but keep the pan on the heat.
Add the brandy to the hot pan.
Turn the heat to medium-high and simmer for a few minutes while scraping down the pan.
Reduce the brandy by half and until you can no longer smell the alcohol.
Pour in the beef stock, bring to a quick simmer and cook until it has also reduced by half.
Turn the heat down to medium and pour in the cream.
Add the peppercorns and cook for 2 minutes.
Taste and season the sauce with salt and a few good grindings of black pepper.
Serve as needed.
