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.
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.
We cook a very similar sauce but not with Tabasco or the green peppercorn, it all seems to add up to a to great sauce to me, can't wait to try it, iv picked up on a lot of ideas from these recipe's recipe's thanks
