    Eric in LB's Note:

    This has long been a staple for dinner parties and always one of my favorites. I have also prepared this using lamb chops instead of steads and it is also wonderful. This is my interpretation of this exquisite French favorite. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    steaks

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To crack peppercorns, wrap them in a clean dish cloth and crush them by firmly pressing on peppercorns with the bottom of a heavy skillet or by tapping gently tapping with a mallet. Peppercorns should be cracked to release their flavor, not ground. Avoid food mill processing. This really makes a difference!
    2. 2
      Press cracked peppercorns generously on both sides of the beef filets, covering evenly. Season liberally on both sides of the filets with kosher salt.
    3. 3
      Heat butter and oil in a large heavy skillet (cast-iron or Le Creuset type) over medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Add filets and cook until well browned, approximately 4 minutes on each side for medium rare preparation.
    5. 5
      Transfer steads to four warmed plates and cover loosely with foil to retain heat while preparing the sauce.
    6. 6
      Add Cognac to the hot skillet, then carefully ignite. Make sure to keep a tight-fitting lid handy so the flames can be readily extinguished if needed. Allow alcohol to burn off for about 1 minute, then add the stock.
    7. 7
      Cook until the sauce is reduce by half, approximately 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add cream and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until thick, about another 4-6 minutes.
    9. 9
      Season with salt and pour the sauce over the steaks.
    10. 10
      Serve immediately.
