Fancy a steak but watching the pennies? This substitute made with lean steak mince is equally as delicious with a velvety sauce made with green peppercorns, brandy and cream. Yum . . . I like to serve this with fries and asparagus or a green salad and a good bottle of red. This dish always goes down well.
Green peppercorns: Use the peppercorns found in small jars in brine. The best ones I have found are the ones purchased in France. The ones in the UK are nice, too, although you may have to scout for a good brand as some are a little too vinegary.
