Pepper Steak

Recipe by JustJanS
READY IN: 12mins
YIELD: 3/4 cup


  • 1
    tablespoon oil
  • 4
    steaks (your favourite type and size)
  • 3
    tablespoons brandy
  • 4
    teaspoons green peppercorns (the ones canned in brine)
  • 1
    cup beef stock
  • 1
    cup cream (I always use low fat)
  • 2
    teaspoons chopped chives


  • Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the steaks to your liking- (remembering they will have to rest and keep warm about 10 minutes, so they will continue to cook).
  • Remove the cooked steaks from the pan, and add the brandy allow a little of it to cook away, add the peppercorns to the pan and crush about half of them with the back of a fork.
  • Add the beef stock and cook over a high heat for a couple of minutes to reduce by about half.
  • Add the cream and continue to cook over a high heat for a few more minutes until this mixture has again reduced by half-or to a nice consistency.
  • Add the worchestershire sauce and the chives and serve over your steaks.
