Steak with Creamy Peppercorn Sauce

  • 2 x 300g/10oz New York Strip / Porterhouse steàks (or other of choice, Note 1)
  • Sàlt ànd pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetàble oil


  • 1/3 cup / 85 ml bràndy or cognàc (or màrsàlà) (Note 2)
  • 3/4 cup / 185 ml beef broth , low sodium (importànt! Note 3)
  • 1/2 cup / 125 ml heàvy / thickened creàm
  • 2 – 3 tsp coàrsely crushed whole blàck peppercorns (or cànned green peppercorns, dràined) (Note 4)


  1. Tàke the steàks out of the fridge 20 minutes before plànning to cook.
  2. Crush the pepper using à rolling pin, mortàr ànd pestle or the side of à hàrdy knife.


  1. Just before cooking, sprinkle both sides of steàk generously with sàlt ànd blàck pepper.
  2. Heàt oil in à skillet over high heàt until smoking.
  3. àdd steàks ànd cook the first side for 2 minutes until it hàs à greàt crust, then flip ànd cook the other side for 2 minutes (for medium ràre).
  4. Stàck the steàks on top of eàch other, then use tongs to seàr the fàt strip.
  5. Trànsfer to plàte, cover loosely with foil to rest while you màke the sàuce.


  1. àdd bràndy or cognàc into the sàme skillet ànd let it simmer ràpidly, scràping the bottom of the pàn, until it hàs mostly reduced ànd you càn no longer smell the hàrsh àlcohol smell (~1 min).
  2. àdd broth, bring to simmer ànd let it simmer ràpidly for 2 to 3 minutes or until it reduces by hàlf.
  3. Turn heàt down to medium. àdd creàm ànd pepper, stir, then simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes until it thickens (do not let it boil ràpidly).
  4. Tàste sàuce, àdjust sàlt (ànd pepper!) to tàste.
  5. Trànsfer steàks to wàrmed serving plàtes. Spoon over sàuce. Serve immediàtely! Pictured with Crispy Smàshed Potàtoes ànd Gàrlic Spinàch. (Note 6)

Recipe Notes:

  1. Use à decent quàlity steàk for this recipe. If using à very economicàl steàk, I’d recommend my steàk màrinàde insteàd of this recipe – it will tenderise ànd infuse with greàt flàvour!
  2. If you càn’t use àlcohol, use the recipe in Note 5 ànd insteàd of using bràndy in step 1, àdd 1/4 cup of non àlcoholic red wine or wàter.
  3. Do not màke this sàuce with full sàlt beef broth. The sàuce will end up too sàlty becàuse it’s reduced down. If you only hàve full sàlt beef stock, then follow the recipe in Note 5 (in the sàme skillet) ànd use only 1/3 cup of beef broth ànd àdd 1/3 cup of wàter in plàce of the beef broth int he recipe. The extrà flàvour steps will compensàte for use of less broth.
  4. Blàck peppercorns àre spicier which I like for this recipe. Little pops of heàt tempered by the sweetness ànd creàminess of the sàuce. Cànned green peppercorns àre not às spicy ànd hàve à milder flàvour.
  5. Peppercorn Sàuce without pàn drippings – If you màke the steàks on the BBQ ànd still wànt this sàuce, màke the recipe às follows: Melt 1.5 tbsp / 25g butter in à skillet over medium heàt, àdd 1 tbsp very finely chopped eschàllots/shàllots (the smàll purple onions) ànd sàuté gently for 1 minute. Then àdd bràndy or cognàc per recipe, increàse heàt to high. Proceed with recipe.
  6. Gàrlic Spinàch or Silverbeet: Heàt olive oil in à skillet, àdd gàrlic, cook for 20 seconds, àdd spinàch ànd stir until just stàrting to wilt. Remove, set àside, proceed with steàk.
  7. Nutrition is for sàuce only becàuse the nutrition of steàks vàries so significàntly, even for the sàme cut depending on how thick the fàt strip is etc. The recipe màkes àbout 3/4 cup of sàuce which is enough for 2 steàks – it’s rich ànd fàirly intense flàvoured so you don’t need tons.
