  • 2 tsp Whole Black Peppercorns
  • 14 oz Beef Top Sirloin (Lean Only, Trimmed to 1/8" Fat, Choice Grade)
  • 2 tbsp Light Olive Oil
  • 6 oz Mushrooms
  • 1 oz Shallots
  • 0 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbsp Unsweetened Ketchup
  • 0 1/2 fl oz (no ice) Brandy
  • 1 tbsp Parsley


Green peppercorns are used instead of black peppercorns in this recipe.  Purchase them brined in a jar for the best flavor and consistency.  You will need 2 tablespoons drained from the brine.
  1. Spread peppercorns on a work surface and press onto both sides of the steaks in an even layer.
  2. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Cook steaks 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove steaks from the skillet and keep warm.
  3. To the same skillet add the mushrooms and shallots.  Cook over medium-high heat 3-5 minutes and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Add cream, ketchup, brandy, and up to 1/2 tsp additional salt to skillet. Bring to a boil, stirring, loosening any browned bits from bottom of skillet.
  4. Lower heat and simmer the sauce for 2 minutes until slightly thickened. Pour sauce over steaks, sprinkle with fresh minced parsley and serve immediately.
