Ribeye Steak with Green Peppercorn Sauce

Ribeye Steak with Green Peppercorn Sauce

Serves 2


  • 2 x Scotch Beef ribeye or sirloin steaks, approx 200g each

  • 25 g unsalted butter

  • 2 to 3 tbsp green peppercorns from a jar of green peppercorns in brine

  • 1 to 2 tbsp brandy

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed with a little salt

  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 100 ml whipping cream

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley

Cooking Method

  1. Lightly salt the fatty edges of the steaks and sear those edges by holding the two steaks together with tongs and placing on a very hot frying pan until browned and exuding some fat.
  2. Manoeuvre the steaks, still together, till the edges are brown all around, then in the rendered fat sear the two separate steaks on both sides until done to your liking. (The steaks should need about 2 to 3 minutes on each side for rare, 3 minutes each side for medium/rare and 4 to 5 mins per side for medium/well done.)
  3. Set the steaks aside in a warm place while you make the sauce.
  4. If you want to save washing up, blot up any excess fat from the pan with kitchen paper and re-use it, alternatively you can use a small pot to make the sauce.
  5. Melt the butter in the pan until it is foaming.
  6. Add the drained peppercorns and crush slightly with the back of a wooden spoon. Add the garlic.
  7. Add the brandy and salt and stir together to deglaze the pan, the stir in the mustard and the cream.
