recipe : steak flambé with pepper of Jean-François Piège (1 person)
250 g fillet of beef, cooking oil or peanut butter, 30 g of butter 20 cl of cream, 1 shallot, 5 cl of white wine, 1 tablespoon of cognac, salt, pepper
In a sauté pan, drizzle it with cooking oil or peanut. When the oil begins to heat, add the butter. When the butter has melted, place the beef tenderloin in decreasing the intensity of the fire. Let the butter foam, ensuring that it never burns. At the end of two to three minutes, flip the fillet of beef. Just before checking the cooking of the filet of beef (preferably rare), get a shallot finely chopped in the sauté pan. Book only the fillet of beef on a plate in the pushing with a spoon so that it does not hit anything. Add salt to both sides.
Pour into the sauté pan, the cognac and the white wine. Let reduce. Remove with a spoon all the juices and slightly increase the intensity of the fire. Pour in the cream. Mix together using a spoon. Bring to a boil with a pinch of salt. Whisk the sauce until you get a nice texture.
Just before sending, heat slightly the beef tenderloin in the oven or in a frying pan.
Place your beef fillet in the centre of the plate. Top with the pepper sauce.
