  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 shallots, finely chopped

Nutritional Facts

1 steak with 1/4 cup sauce equals 444 calories, 19 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 81 mg cholesterol, 234 mg sodium, 14 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 35 g protein.

Directions

  1. Sprinkle steaks with pepper. In a large skillet, cook steaks in oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove to a baking sheet and keep warm.
  2. Reduce heat to low; add the shallots, Cognac and peppercorns, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in wine and broth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup.
