Bistro-Style Steak Au Poivre

By Andrew Zimmern

Inspired by the classic French bistro dish, this steak au poivre with a peppercorn-laden creamy pan sauce is an easy yet elegant way to impress your guests. Use New York strips, ribeyes or flat iron steaks if you can find them.

Instructions

SERVINGS: 4
TOTAL TIME: 40 MINUTES

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

Season steaks with salt and pepper on all sides.

Place a large cast iron pan over high heat. Preheat for 5 minutes, then add the oil.

Add the steaks. Brown very well, about 4 minutes per side.

Once browned, place the pan into a 500 degree oven for 7 minutes (they will be medium rare). Reserve steaks to a platter.

Return pan to high heat. Add the shallots, thyme, and peppercorns.

Swirl pan and add the brandy and sherry. Stir, and add the stock.

Reduce by half, about 3 or 4 minutes. Add the cream. Simmer briefly and pour sauce over the steaks, serve.
