    diner524's Note:

    A classic in every French cookbook, Steak au Poivre is the perfect main course for a romantic meal. A recipe I found on for French food. This is one that I would probably grill the steaks, as I love the added flavor they get from the grill, and then make the recipe for the sauce on the stove top or side burner. Note: You can use coarsely ground peppercorns in place of the black pepper stated for the recipe.

      love the sauce! i grilled my steaks so i could not use the pans scrapings, i did however cut off some of the fat before i cooked the steak and sauted it in the butter and shallots, i also added a teaspon or so of dijon mustard along with the cream. this sauce was amazing, great flavor did not over power the steak at all, a must try

      This was delicious! The sauce was very flavorful and a perfect complement to the beef. I served it with # 482036, and it was a great combination.
      Made for ZWT8.

      Yum, yum, yummiest! We grilled the steaks...a cow sized porterhouse for DH and a dainty filet mignon for me. I did however make the full sauce recipe. It is so darn good I could eat it with a spoon. Ok, I did eat it with a spoon. What you see in the picture is the largest portion of the sauce left after my 'tastings'. There was less than 1/4 of a cup left & I should be ashamed. lol. I think this would aslo be a fabulous base for other dishes. Mushrooms would be good in it too. Did I tell you I love this sauce :) Made for ZWT5 - Ali Baba's Babes
