    gailanng's Note:

    The outside has a nice, well formed crust; the center is perfectly pink; the sauce is full of depth and flavour and perfectly balances out with the steak. Adapted from http://www.courvoisiercollective.com.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pat dry steaks and salt generously on both sides; allow to stand on paper towels for 30-60 minutes before cooking.
    2. 2
      In the meantime make a paste of the garlich by sprinkling a generous amount of course salt on top of the smashed garlic and using the palm of your hand on the flat side of a knife, slide the knife over the garlic repeatedly until a paste forms.
    3. 3
      Pat the rested steaks dry and firmly press the top and bottom of each steak into the peppercorns.
    4. 4
      Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat. Add 2 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp olive oil; melt butter, stirring to combine.
    5. 5
      Gently place the steaks into the hot pan and sear over high heat for two minutes on each side. Don't move the steaks around. Allow to form a crust.
    6. 6
      Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the remaining 3 tbsp of butter, garlic paste, thyme and rosemary. Continue cooking the steaks, turning occasionally and basting with the pan liquid, until your desired doneness is reached (about 8 minutes for medium).
    7. 7
      Remove the steaks from pan and tent with foil to rest.
    8. 8
      Discard the liquid from the pan, but do not scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom.
    9. 9
      Place the pan over medium-high heat and add 1/3 cup cognac. Light the cognac with a match to burn off the alcohol. Whisk in the heavy cream, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Pour in the juices that have accumulated on the plate from the steaks, along with 1 Tbsp of cognac. Quickly stir until thickened again, about 30 seconds.
    10. 10
      Plate the steaks, topping them with a generous amount of sauce.
