We’ve been talking about beef all week in our guide to beef. Now it’s time for less reading, more action. Steak au poivre is one of those dishes that is easy to execute but seems fancy enough to impress whoever is lucky enough to be sharing this meal with you.

Traditionally steak au poivre is steak simply covered with coarse ground peppercorns and finished off with a pat of butter. We’ve created a crust that’s packed with flavor and aromas, and can be used on meat, fish and vegetables too. The finishing sauce adds some richness to the dish. Pour a glass of red and dine like a king.
