Peppercorn Steaks Recipe

Peppercorn Steaks Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

30 ml/2 tbsp green peppercorns, crushed
4 sirloin steaks
50 g/2 oz/0.25 cup butter or margarine

Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

15 ml/1 tbsp snipped chives

30 ml/2 tbsp double (heavy) cream
 

Method :

Press the peppercorns into both sides of the steaks. Melt the butter or margarine and fry (saute) the steaks for 4 minutes on each side for medium steaks, slightly less or more if you prefer them rare or well done. Transfer the steaks to a warm serving plate and keep warm. Add the lemon rind to the pan with 15 ml/1 tbsp of the lemon juice and the chives and cook for a few minutes until reduced slightly. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream. Pour over the steaks and serve at once.
