- Crush the peppercorns.
- Cover the steaks with the crushed peppercorns, pressing them into the steak firmly.
- Season with salt and pan fry, grill, or broil until cooked to desired degree.
- Deglaze the pan with cream, red wine, or beef stock, reducing the liquid and stirring up the brown bits in the pan before spooning it over the steaks.
I always deglaxe the pan with heavy/double cream as it makes such a superb tasty marbled sauce to cover the steaks.
