I cook a mean steak but Meanie's is meaner!!!! This steak was perfect in every way.The instructions are step by step and very easy to follow. I started off with a special aged Rib steaks (3/4" thick, 6 oz) from my favorite butcher. I used a mixture of several colored pepper corns coarsely ground.Seared it 31/2 minutes each side with the butter and sauted small button mushrooms along side, when I foil tented the steaks I put the mushrooms in with each one. Used cognac and dark gelled consumme. Served with Ovenstone fries, new parsleid, steamed carrots and bundles of lightly steamd local asparagus tied with a strands of chives. Put the sauce in small serving cups (eggcups) and we dipped our fries in it and drizzled it over the veggies. This meal was fit for a king Thanks Mean Chef - perfect steak
Dinner was fabulous tonight. I used NY strip & ribeye. Before adding the wine, which I used merlot, I added the butter to the pan first and I sautéd some sliced mushrooms and onion then I added the wine. Yummy for our tummy.
Mean, another winner. This is very simple to prepare. Your directions are very detailed. The only problem I had was the steaks were undercooked for our tastes but it could be my oven not your recipe. I used the NY Strip and a peppercorn medeley. I had to use a Rose for the wine since it was all I had, but it turned out fabulous anyway. Thanks for posting this recipe!
This is definitely a steak lover's dinner. A few common sense pointers: if you use a thicker cut of meat, you'll have to roast longer. I used a ribeye cut and to roast close to 8 minutes. Also, if you eat mostly vegetarian during the week and are looking to indulge in a meaty meal . . . this is not the way to do it, as it is most certainly a meal for hardcore carnivores.
That being said: Yum!
This was very tasty. We had it for Valentine's dinner. Thanks for posting.
PERFECT. Quite a different pepper steak sauce from the one I usually make, but just as good and a nice change of pace. Both my husband and I enjoyed it very much, thanks for.... for posting it, Mean Chef, and for its safe keeping, newspapergal! :o)
The directions are detailed and easy to follow. The recipe is simple and delicious. I overcooked my steaks but that was my fault, I was distracted. This is a great way to make steak. Thank you.
Just made this tonight and it was FANTASTIC!! Definately use the shallots in the sauce.. Thanks so much for posting this. thanks
The hubby and I loved this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly but cooked steak entirely on the stovetop. Steak was tender and delicious, Didnt even need the sauce poured over. Thanks for a great recipe.
I don't eat meat, but I made this steak for someone special and he loved it. I was a little over whelmed by all the steps in this recipe, but it is a lot easier than it looks. I ended up getting too big of a steak and it took longer to cook. Next time I will be sure to get a 6oz steak.
