176 people made this

IngredientsServes: 4

  • 4 tablespoons coarsely crushed black peppercorns
  • 4 (170g) beef fillet steaks, 3cm thick
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons beef stock
  • 250ml double cream

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:15min ›Ready in:25min

  1. Place the peppercorns into a shallow bowl. Sprinkle the fillets with salt on both sides, and coat both sides with crushed peppercorns.
  2. Melt the butter with the olive oil over high heat in a heavy frying pan (not non-stick) until the foam disappears from the butter. Gently place the steaks in the pan, and cook until they start to become firm and are reddish-pink and juicy in the centre, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Remove the steaks to platter, and cover tightly with foil.
  3. Pour the beef stock into the frying pan, and use a whisk to stir the stock and scrape up any dissolved brown flavour bits from the frying pan. Whisk in the cream, and simmer the sauce until it's reduced and thickened, 6 to 7 minutes. Place the steaks back in the frying pan, turn to coat with sauce, and serve with the remaining sauce.

Save a few quid...

To save money, purchase a whole fillet and slice the steaks yourself. Always remember to cut against the grain of the meat.

Really tasty sauce and easy to make.-09 Sep 2015

This is a very good variation of Steak Au Poivre. The cream sauce is very nice. The only thing I did differently was to cook the filets less. It is a standard misconception that 130 is medium rare. Not true. 120 will come up to medium rare,(125), once it sits for 5-7 minutes. Do NOT cut into the meat or poke it with a thermometer to check for doneness as all the juices will leak out. Figure 2-1/2 minutes per side on medium high for med rare. Please do not overcook filet. There is no fat on this cut and no margin for error!-07 Mar 2011

Great recipe! I substituted milk for the heavy cream because that is what I had on hand. I added a little flour to help the sauce thicken. The filets came out perfect. I cooked them 4 min. each side.-27 Feb 2010

    The realities of the modern market are such that quite often we, consumers, are deceived by unscrupulous suppliers of goods and services. Specialists, sales consultants, whose advice you will find in the articles of this website, will help to avoid this.
