Directions for: Filet Steak with Shrimp Peppercorn Sauce



5 (2-inch-thick) beef filet steaks (about 10 oz each)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 Tbsp salted butter

1 Tbsp olive oil


2 Tbsp salted butter

8 oz shelled and deveined jumbo shrimp, (16-to 20-count), chopped

½ cup beef broth

¼ cup brandy

1 cup heavy cream

2 Tbsp crushed peppercorns

1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley



1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

2. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat, then add the butter and olive oil. When hot, throw in the steaks and sear for a minute on each side.

3. Transfer the steaks to the oven for 3 to 5 minutes for medium rare or 6 to 7 minutes if you like them cooked a little more. Remove to a board, cover in foil and let rest for 5 minutes.


1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped shrimp and saute until cooked, 2 to 3 minutes, then remove to a plate. Add the broth and brandy followed by the cream and crushed peppercorns. Bring to a simmer, throw the shrimp back in, add the parsley and cook for about 2 more minutes.

2. Pour the sauce over the steaks and serve.
