DIRECTIONS

  • Bring filets to room temperature.
  • On a plate combine the pepper and rosemary.
  • Salt both sides of filets, then press one side into pepper mixture to form a crust.
  • In a very hot, heavy skillet add a little olive oil (this will keep the butter from burning) and butter (for flavor).
  • Sear filets until desired doneness is reached. (About 6 minutes on each side for large filets to reach medium rare.).
  • Remove to cutting board to rest for 5 to 10 minutes (this will allow time for the juices to redistribute and stay in the meat instead of on your plate).
  • For the sauce, combine broth and pepper. Reduce to half.
  • Add whiskey, cream and mustard; reduce to desired amount.
  • Remove from heat and swirl in butter. Allow to cool slightly to thicken.
  • Serve steaks whole or slice thinly and top with sauce.
