    Prep Time

  • 4 People


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Knorr Beef Stock Cube
  • 2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 4 175 - 225 grams beef fillet steak (about 4cm thick)
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 100 ml boiling water
  • 200 ml double cream

  1. Mix the oil, Knorr Beef Stock Cube and the pepper together to make a paste.

  2. Rub the paste evenly over the steaks to season.

  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan, place the steaks in and fry.

  4. For a perfect steak to your liking, give it 5 minutes on each side for medium; 1 minute less each side for rare; and 1 minute more for well done.

  5. Once they are cooked to your liking, leave steaks to rest for 5 minutes while you make the sauce.

  6. Add the brandy to the pan (carefully as it will flame). Bubble, then add the water and de-glaze the pan getting all the flavouring into the pan. Stir through the cream, bubbling to thicken a little, then taste. Add extra pepper if you wish, to taste.
