This sauce is so tasty and is great with chips or mash. I looked on zaar for a pepper steak recipe but only found stir-fry's with capsicum so I came up with my own. I have said that this recipe is for 2 servings because I have 1 steak and my fiance has 2. It also makes a lot of sauce which we like so you could easily cook another 1 or 2 steaks and still have enough sauce to cover them all as well as the chips.
- Season raw steaks with salt and freshly cracked pepper.
- Melt butter with oil in pan, add steak and cook to you liking. Remove and set aside.
- Turn heat to medium. Add flour to the pan to make a roux with the pan juices, let cook for 1 minute.(only add enough flour to thicken the mix, don't put so much that it makes the mixture "crumbly" because the flour can overtake the taste and you will end up needing more stock or water).
- Begin adding the stock bit by bit, whisking constantly so it doesn't get lumpy. It will be quite thin once all the stock is added.
- Add pepper steak seasoning to your taste and mix in to the gravy. Keep whisking.
- Add cream and thicken to your liking on a low / medium heat.
- Re-heat steaks in the micorwave for about 30 sec's if you haven't kept them warm.
- Serve with chips or potato mash.
Yummy! I didn't use pepper steak seasoning...simply salt, garlic, pepper, a dash of cayenne, and some dried thyme. It was amazing with some mashed potatoes.
Absolutely fantastic, I used a medley of peppercorns instead of just black and served over rump steak and for 3 of us I halved the recipe and it was the perfect amount for us. Thank you kb1 for a great recipe.
Easy and delicious, as comforting as a good pub pepper steak!
