Steak Au Poivre

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Carmen B.

I always double the sauce because I find there isn't enough. Add more mustard if you want, but be careful because it can be overwhelming.

We have made this twice and it was superb both times. Doubling the sauce is recommended as suggested. We used fresh mushrooms instead of the canned ones. We browned the mushrooms in the oil after removing the steaks. We had to remove the mushrooms before continuing, but it was worth the small amount of extra effort. Thanks for posting this recipe!
