Ingredients Needed

  1. pound (340 g) tender, well marbled steak (such as rib eye or
  2. sirloin), to inch (1 to 2 cm) thick
  3. 4 teaspoons coarse cracked pepper
  4. 1 tablespoon (14 g) butter
  5. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
  6. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) brandy
  7. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) heavy cream
  8. Salt

Cooking Instructions

Place the steak on a plate and sprinkle half of the pepper evenly over it.

Using your hands or the back of a spoon, press the pepper firmly into the steak's surface.

Turn the steak over and do the same thing to the other side.

Add the butter and oil to a large, heavy skillet over high heat.

When the skillet is hot, add the steak.

For a -inch (1 cm) thick steak, 4 minutes per side is about right; go maybe 5 minutes for a -inch (2 cm) thick steak.

When the steak is done on both sides, turn off the heat, pour the brandy over it, and light it on fire.

When the flames die down, remove the steak to a serving platter and pour the cream into the skillet.

Stir it around, dissolving the meat juices and brandy into it.

Season lightly with salt and pour it over the steak.
