Deck Family Farm’s Steak Au Poivre

June 15, 2017 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

This week, Deck Family Farm is offering pasture raised pork chops at eight chops for $20. Also beef tenderloin steaks, also known as filet mignon, for two steaks for $20. These are super special deals for the super special father in your life!

Here’s their recipe for the classic French dish, Steak au Poivre!

Yield: 4 Steaks
Time: 20 min

Ingredients:
4 steaks
1 1/2 tbsp whole peppercorn
1 tbsp coarse salt
3 tbsp butter
1 shallot, finely diced
2 tbsp cognac
1 cup stock or broth
1/2 cup cream

Directions:

  1. Place steaks on cutting board and pat dry with paper towels. Coarsely crack the black pepper in mortar and pestle. Sprinkle the pepper as well as salt on both sides of each steaks and press into the meat so the seasoning coats the steaks.
  2. Preheat large cast iron skillet to high, then add in 2 tbsp butter. Place steaks in and cook 3-5 minutes per side depending upon thickness and desired doneness. Set steaks aside.
  3. Add remaining tbsp of butter to pan, then shallots. Saute until translucent. Add in cognac and light a match above pan, making sure to be safe. Then add in broth and cream.
  4. Scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze.
  5. Cook down until sauce has thickened.
  6. Place steak back in the pan with sauce and coat. Plate the steak and add more sauce.
