      This really hit the spot tonight!! i couldn't locate any brandy or cognac so I used red wine. a bit different but still delicious! i used ribeyes & seared them well in my cast ron skillet. i let them rest vs. putting them in the oven & they were perfectly medium rare. :) the sauce was woderful. Thank you! made for the Emerald City Shakers ZWT7. :)

      I wanted to make a steak, and truly enjoy a wonderful filet. At first I was going to grill it, but then I saw this recipe. It sounded interesting, so I made it. I enjoyed the sauce, but it tasted a bit like the gravy I use for country-fried steak. Once I tasted it with the steak, I felt it needed a little something....so I added some dijon mustard. I think horseradish would work well too. The mixed peppercorns were delicious, and I'm so glad I used the mix instead of just the black peppercorns. Cooked my steak medium-rare, and had a wonderful dinner tonight. Thanks for sharing!

      This was tasty. When I put the bourbon in the pan, it boiled off VERY quickly, so I added more....too much I think. It ended up looser than I had hoped, but I think that was all the extra bourbon.
