We made this as part of the Adoptee Support swap, and it was delicious! Although I forgot to include the herb sauce in the photo, it was the perfect accompaniment to this peppery dish. The only things I did differently from the recipe were to use buffalo instead of beef, and tricolor pepper instead of all black peppercorns. Delicious!
