Beurre Poivre Vert is an amazing green peppercorn sauce that is the perfect accompaniment to steak. Steak au poivre sounds as if it would be difficult, but it is actually quite simple to prepare, and makes an easy and elegant (perhaps somewhat pricy) meal. Essentially it is a sautéed steak, with a quick pan sauce. This version of Beurre Poivre Vert sauce is made with green peppercorns and tastes bright but not overpoweringly peppery. If you serve it with scallion-mashed potatoes, your home cooked steak au poivre will put the best neighborhood bistro to shame.
Steak with green peppercorn sauce is a French bistro classic. The sauce is done in the pan after the steak is cooked. The method of making the sauce is so simple, obvious and French that finding where it came from is essentially impossible.
Steak au poivre is sometimes prepared by adding a full-on peppercorn crust to the steak and then cooking and smothering over with the green peppercorn sauce. This results in a very peppery and delicious dish. Bon appetit!
