  • Preparation Time10 mins
  • Cooking Time8 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyMedium
30g plain flour
30g butter
240ml beef stock
1 tbsp crushed peppercorns
400 to 450g New York strip steak, trimmed
2 tbsp olive oil
10g chopped shallots
Pinch minced garlic
60ml brandy
60ml double cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Freshly chopped parsley leaves
1) For the brown sauce, make a roux by adding the flour and butter to a small bowl, whisking until combined. Put the beef stock in a saucepan, over a low heat, and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the roux and combine until smooth. No lumps!

2) For the steak au poivre, with a meat mallet gently pound the peppercorns onto both sides of the steak. Place a saucepan on a medium heat, add the olive oil and heat until smoking. Add the steak, turning once or twice until cooked to desired doneness.

3) Add the shallots and garlic and stir. Do not allow to burn. Remove the pan from the heat and deglaze with brandy. Light the brandy with a long kitchen match and when the flames subside, place the pan back on the stove.

4) Add the brown sauce and whisk in the double cream. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. If desired, you may remove the steak before final mixing. Place the steak on a serving platter and pour the au poivre mixture on top. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
