  • 2 x 200g Fillet steaks (or ribeye)
  • 30ml Vegetable oil
  • 3 Tbs Black peppercorns, roughly crushed

  • 30ml Cognac (or brandy)
  • 60ml White wine
  • 60ml Cream
  1. Rub the steaks with the oil
  2. Drench the steaks in the cracked black pepper so the both sides of the steaks have a good coating of pepper
  3. Heat your pan until smoking hot, add the butter and fry the steaks for 6-10 minutes, turning every 15 seconds
  4. In the last turn-cycle, add the cognac and ignite it with your blowtorch, or by tipping the pan slightly over the gas. Stand back when you do this.
  5. Remove the steaks from the pan and transfer them to heated platters.
  6. Add the wine to the pan and stir briefly to deglaze the pan.
  7. Add the cream and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.
