Steak au Poivre with Decadent Cognac Sauce (National Steak Au Poivre Day)

Chef Remi

It’s Steak Au Poivre Day on 9th of September, and it’s one of my partner’s favorite dishes.

Classic Steak Au Poivre come with red wine sauce, but the version that most Americans will have at restaurants is with a creamy brandy sauce.

My version here uses Cognac, which is brandy that comes from the Cognac region of France, and is known for being the best brandy in the world. So I’ll be treating my partner to the best on Steak Au Poivre Day!

How To Make Your Steak au Poivre with Decadent Cognac Sauce:

  1. Take the tenderloin steaks out of the refrigerator for 1 hour prior to cooking so they return to room temperature.

  2. Trim off any excess fat from the steaks. Use our award winning kitchen shears with micro-serrated edges for slip proof cutting. No knife and board necessary!

  3. Sprinkle all the sides of the steak pieces with salt. Measure out your peppercorns using a measuring spoon, and use a mortar and pestle to crush the peppercorns coarsely. If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, use a mallet and a skillet or pie pan.

  4. Spread the peppercorns evenly onto a plate. Now press each fillet steak onto the peppercorns, making sure both sides of each steak are coated. Set aside.

  5. Place a skillet over a medium heat and melt the olive oil and butter. Once they begin to smoke and turn golden, place the steaks into the skillet gently using kitchen tongs (you may need to do them in 2 to 3 batches)

  6. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium to rare steaks, flipping over using heat resistant kitchen tongs. Adjust cooking times if your preference is rare, medium or well done. Once cooked, remove the steaks to a plate, tent with foil and set aside.

  7. Remove the skillet from heat and pour off the excess fat from the skillet, but do not scrape or wipe the pan clean.

  8. Measure out your Cognac using measuring cups, and add to the skillet. Carefully ignite it with a firestick, click lighter or long match. Do not ignite any alcohol while the skillet is on heat!

  9. Gently swirl and shake the skillet to reduce the flames. Once the flames have died, return the skillet to a medium heat.

  10. Measure out your cream using measuring cups, and add to the skillet.

  11. Bring the sauce to a boil. Whisk for 5 to 6 minutes until the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Add the teaspoon of Cognac and season with salt to taste.

  12. Add the steaks you set aside back into the skillet and spoon over the sauce. Serve immediately (with choice of vegetables, if preferred). Magnifique!

Natasha said: Functional, great size, even dishwasher safe!

I seriously CANNOT say enough good things about these tongs! Where to begin....they are heat resistant up to 600 degrees, which is awesome because I am known to melt a lot of my cookware (or use metal cookware, thus scratching my pans). They are dishwasher safe, which is awesome. The sizes are great and they're super functional, but honestly I think the best part is the little button at the top, which you pull up on to close them. I HATE how a lot of tongs stay open, taking up so much room in the silverware drawer--no worries with that here! And to top it off, they even come with a lifetime warranty! This is my first Chef Remi purchase--I will definitely be back for more!

John said: Bad can opener

This can opener opened a few cans then broke. Tried to contact customer service, no luck. Back to Wal-Mart $2.00 tool, much better.

Stefani Main said: Awesome thermometer

This thermometer works awesome. Easy to use and easy to read. Also love it comes with a cap for when you aren't using it!

Lisa Pope said: Love these tongs

This is a great set of tongs, I love that you set a set of two and that they are reasonable priced. They are very comfortable in my hand an are easy to maneuver while grabbing food. The rubber is high quality and like never having to worry about scratching my pans or them melting. They clean up great just with soap and water or in my dishwasher. The best part is the locking tab so they save space and are easy to carry around. I am thinking of buying more of these as house warming presents.

Sima Levin said: The best products

I am using a lot of Chef Remi products. All of them really good. The last is Kitchen sturdy shears. It is a
Multyfunctional thing. A cut the whole chicken with them, opened beer and cracked nuts. Cut plastic covers and more. They looked nice too. Recommend to everybody !
