“These luscious steaks' peppery bite is tamed with a velvety cream sauce.” - by goodeets7
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Place the peppercorns into a shallow bowl. Sprinkle the beef tenderloin filets with salt on both sides, and coat both sides with crushed peppercorns.
- Melt the butter with the olive oil over high heat in a heavy skillet (not nonstick) 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 center, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Remove the steaks to platter, and cover tightly with foil.
- Pour the beef broth into the skillet, and use a whisk to stir the broth and scrape up any dissolved brown flavor bits from the skillet. Whisk in the cream, and simmer the sauce until it's reduced and thickened, 6 to 7 minutes. Place the steaks back in the skillet, turn to coat with sauce, and serve with the remaining sauce.

"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 si..." See morede."
"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. No..." See moret 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!"
"AWESOME!!! I tweaked it a bit -instead of peppercorn I used a "Spicy Garlic" seasoning in a "grinder". It worked out so well...and the cream sauce was delicious!! I've been trying to find a recipe ..." See morefor this cream sauce that I had at Sajo's, it came with my "steak bites" I had ordered...This sauce tastes just like it!! This recipe goes to the top of my list!!"
