    This was really good; the poivre sauce was excellent without overpowering the meat. Did not add the additional 1Tbs butter for the sauce and was still a total hit. Served on mixed greens with Yukon Gold potatoes on the side. Thanks!

    This is a variation

      I was kind of skeptical on how this dish was going to turn out for me, mainly because I am starting to explore different types of cooking. I made this for some family members I got nothing but complements from it (although I felt it was a disaster) looking back I find that the steak is perfectly seasoned as is but slightly cover the steak with the left over sauce, serve with a side of mash potatoes and asparagus I guarantee you it will be a hit.
