Steak Au Poivre

This evening I made some delicious steak au poivre for dinner.  It is really easy and quick.  Takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. 

Steak Au Poivre


Seasoning (I used Crushed Rosemary, Crushes Sea Salt and Garlic Salt)
4 Steak Medallions (Cut of steak depends on your preference)
Unsalted Butter 3 Tbsp
1/2 Package Mushrooms Sliced
2/3 Cup (3 fl oz) Cognac or Brandy (I used Cherry Grand Marnier)
2/3 Cup Heavy Cream
1 Tsp Tarragon

In a Large Frying pan over med-high heat melt 2 Tbsp butter.  While the butter is melting season the steak on both side with the seasoning of your choice.  Add the steaks to the pan to cook.  Turning once for a total of 6-8 minutes for medium rare and longer if you like your steak done more.  Transfer the steaks to a plate and store in the microwave to keep warm. 
Add the remaining 1 Tbsp butter to the pan and melt over medium heat.  Add the mushrooms and saute' until softened (about a minute).  Stir in the cognac, cream and tarragon.  Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to simmer until slightly thickened.  Simmer for more than a 1-5 minutes.  Turn the heat off and return the steaks to the pan to soak into the sauce.  Serve by spooning sauce over the steak onto the plate.  Enjoy!
