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.

Love this recipe! This steak is my favorite cut and this recipe sends it over the top. I doubled the recipe for my family. They thoroughly enjoyed every last bite! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.

Gail, this was superb! I didn't have the brandy, so used some dry white wine. I would have this always with my steak! Thnx for posting, hon. Made for KcK's Forum.

Beautiful combination of flavours. I made the sauce as written, using an Australian cut of meat called scotch fillet. Also used brandy and 2 cloves of garlic. Served with baked potatoes. Thanks very much for posting.

This was very easy to make and the sauce really compliments the steak. I served over some penne pasta which was a first for me "steak on pasta!!"....something I had never thought of doing. It worked really well with a side of Tasty BBQ Tomatoes. I will be making this again for sure and I am going to try this using pork steaks for a change :) Made for Aus/NZ swap April 2010
