This recipe may look a bit complicated but it is really quite easy to make there are 3 steps make the crepes, do this the day before if you wish, then cook the steaks and make the sauce - The concept is great- a crepe instead of a pastry cover and the flavor is wonderful.The herbs in the crepes are lovely and the sauce very subtle flavors. I found the crepe batter to be too stiff to easily pour so I added an additional 1/2 cup milk. 3/4 cup batter per crepe and it was just the right amount for 4 crepes. One crepe I put in the whole steak as called for in the recipe the others I sliced the steak first being very careful not to lose any of the meat juices and I liked the sliced best. I used Madagascar canned green pepper corns for the sauce. Fabulous elegant meal, flavor 5 star plus. Thanks Toolie (I took off one star having to adjust the crepe batter - I measured very carefully perhaps it was my flour that caused the batter to be too thick)

Superb stuff!! I had this planned as a part of a surprise private party for my guys (DH and DS) and we freaked out. Used spring onion greens instead of the chives and cilantro instead of the parsley. I also used cayenne in the sauce and omitted the green peppercorn as I did not find any. It was different and really, really lovely. DH said give this the highest rating possible. And the wifey concurs!!!! Thank you for a new experience in dining :) Fay
