This is derived from a Rachel Ray recipe, and has that classic pepper steak taste. Be sure to use a good cut of meat, and don't leave out the definitely makes the recipe. I don't usually cook with wine, so I was a skeptic, but it really does add just the right flavor to the recipe.

Excellent, quick and easy. A few things I did differently: I sprinkled meat tenderizer on the steak and let sit for about 30 minutes so that the steak would definitely be tender because this type of meat can be tough sometimes. I also used a can of chicken stock because I did not have beef consomme. I would imagine it would have been perfect with the beef consomme. I also omitted the ginger as I am not a big fan. And last, I rubbed crushed peppercorns on the meat before searing. Out of this world My family loved it so much, there was nothing left for seconds.
