Peppercorn Steak

Cattlemen's Steakhouse Recipe

Serves 4

4 (7 oz.) top sirloin steaks
4 cups water
1/2 (1 oz.) package au jus mix
2 tablespoons margarine
2 1/2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup heavy cream
2 ounces brandy
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground coarse black pepper

Heat a grill to medium. Put the steaks the grill and cook to desired doneness.

Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the au jus mix and the brandy. Let boil for 10 minutes. While that cooks, in a separate small saucepan, combine the margarine and the flour to make the roux. Let the roux cook for 5 minutes. Add roux to the au jus mixture and stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Stir in the cream and the black pepper. Arrange the steaks on serving plates and serve drizzled with the sauce.
