Prep Time : 0:15 | Cook Time : 0:15 | Total Time : 0:30 | Serving : 4 person.


  • 55g can green peppercorns in brine, rinsed, drained

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) red wine

  • 4 x 200g beef eye-fillet steaks

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) Massel beef stock

  • 1/2 cup (120g) creme fraiche

  • French fries, to serve

  • Rocket, to serve

  • Finely chopped flat-leaf parsley, to serve


  • Step 1

    Place peppercorns and wine in a bowl and stand for 5 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook for 2-3 minutes each side for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a warm plate and set aside in a warm spot to rest while you make the peppercorn sauce.

  • Step 3

    Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the peppercorns and wine to the pan and simmer for 1-2 minutes until the wine has almost evaporated. Add the consomme and creme fraiche, then cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes until thickened and reduced. Season to taste.

  • Step 4

    Place the steaks on serving plates with the fries and rocket. Drizzle the sauce over the steaks and sprinkle with parsley.
