Serves: 2 

  • 2 rib eye steaks, or fillet or sirloin
  • 1 small tin green peppercorns in brine, drained
  • 1 generous splash brandy
  • 100ml double cream
  • 2 drops Tabasco® sauce
  • 1 knob butter

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Bring steaks to room temperature.
  2. Heat a fry pan over high heat and add the steaks, turn the heat down slightly and cook to your liking, turning as needed. Remove to a warm plate whilst you cook the sauce.
  3. In the same fry pan over a medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of the drained green peppercorns. Stir for a minute (the aroma of pepper may be initially a little strong but this will subside). Pour in the brandy and carefully flambe or stir with a wooden spoon for a minute or two. Add the cream, reduce heat to low and cook until the sauce has reduced slightly. Stir in the Tabasco, then stir in the butter for a glossy sauce. Pour over steak and serve.
