Here's What You'll Need:
2 New York Strip Steaks
1/8 Cup Whole Black Peppercorns.

1/2 onion minced
3 Cloves garlic minced
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 Cups reduced dark chicken stock

The Finished Product!


My Personal Review:

Alright! This was an extremely fun recipe to make! Not to mention, for the first time ever i was able to FLAMBE' - or light my food on fire! talk about a rush! keep in mind you have to use a Stainless Steel pan for this or you may melt your non stick pans!! When cooking using a stainless pan you get better caramelization on the meat and better Sucs- or bits of caramelization left in the pan. Good luck to anyone trying this recipe, you will not be disappointed!

My Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 Clean Plates

Are you kidding? You light the poor thing on fire and only give it a 5-10 minute rest? I'd require at least half an hour after all that! Looks delicious!
