    Default Pepper Steak

    4 boneless shell steaks (10 ounces each), patted dry
    Salt and pepper
    1/4 cup flour
    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 shallots, finely chopped
    1/4 cup green peppercorns in brine, drained
    1/2 cup cognac or brandy
    1-1/2 cups beef broth
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1/4 cup steak sauce
    Frozen shoestring potatoes, cooked according to package directions

    Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Coat with the flour and shake off any excess.

    In a large, heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat until rippling. Add the steaks and cook, turning once, 10 to 12 minutes total for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate. Add the shallots to the skillet and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the green peppercorns and stir for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the cognac; return to the heat and cook until nearly dry, about 1 minute. Pour in the beef broth, heavy cream and steak sauce; bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

    Lower the heat and return the steaks to the pan along with any juices, turning them in the sauce. Transfer the steaks and sauce to plates and serve with the shoestring potatoes.
