Delish and so easy. Did add some fresh mushrooms saute in butter. Used NY strip steaks, some sauce over potatoes, very good. Will keep this one. Thank you, Kitty

  1. Press pepper into both sides of steaks. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over high heat; add steak and sear on both sides. Reduce heat to medium high and cook an additional 6 to 7 minutes on each side, more for well done.
  2. Remove steak to serving platter and keep warm. Season lightly with salt to taste.
  3. Add brandy to pan with drippings and heat until bubbly; add a small amount of cream. Pour sauce over steaks; garnish with parsley.
