  • Skillet
  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • Whisk
  • Chef's Knife


  • 2 Tenderloin Steaks
  • 2 Tbsp Crushed Peppercorn
  • Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • ¼ Cup Flour
  • ½ Cup Cognac
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Let tenderloin steaks come to room temperature uncovered. Season generously with salt and fresh cracked peppercorn.
  • Heat a skillet on medium-high and add butter and olive oil. Add steaks and cook for 4 minutes per side (for medium rare, for a more well done steak, cook longer)
  • Remove steaks from pan and let rest. Turn heat down to low.
  • Stir in flour and cook until flour is no longer raw, usually a minute. Stir in cognac and cream. Cook at a simmer until alcohol has been cooked off and sauce has thickened. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and spoon over steak to serve. Enjoy!
