  1. Brush steaks with oil and fry in hot butter 2-3 minutes per side. Remove to a warmed platter.
  2. Add the vinegar and then the brandy (the liquor evaporates leaving only flavor); cream, drained peppercorns and a touch of salt.
  3. Reduce this mixture slightly then put the steaks back in the pan.
  • Serve with the warmed sauce.
