What you need:

4  beef  steaks (sirloin or rump)

4 tbsp coarsely crushed black peppercorns
salt to taste
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp olive oil
5 tbsp beef stock
250ml double cream

What to do:
Place the crushed peppercorns into a shallow bowl. Sprinkle the fillets with salt on both sides, and coat both sides with crushed peppercorns.

Melt the butter with the olive oil over high heat in a  frying pan  until the foam disappears from the butter. Gently place the steaks in the frying pan and cook for  about 3 1/2 minutes per side.

Remove the steaks to a plate and cover tightly with foil.

Pour the beef stock into the frying pan, and use a whisk to stir the stock and scrape up any dissolved brown flavour bits from the frying pan. Whisk in the cream, and simmer the sauce until it’s reduced and thickened (around 5-6 minutes). Place the steaks back in the frying pan, turn to coat with sauce then remove and place on the serving plate.

Gently  spoon over  the remaining sauce.
