Recently – like two weeks ago, I discovered Steak au Poivre, through using StumbleUpon. This is the recipe I’ve adapted/changed a little bit to fit our household, but hot damn, I’d propose to this guy if I knew him (and, y’know, if he wasn’t a dude.)
I won’t rehash it all out for you since it’s pretty well done on his side, but the changes I made are:
– I use a cast iron pan, since I don’t have one that isn’t non-stick.
– I use a little more than 1/3 cup of cognac.
– I added sliced crimini mushrooms (8 oz) at the part where you add the cream
– I also added rosemary and thyme since I have obscene amounts of it, and then a teaspoon of pepper as well.
I seriously recommend this as a pretty easy meal to wow people.
