    This was delicious. I served it alongside green beans and some roasted potatoes. I will definitely make it again--followed the recipe exactly.

    The shallot glaze adds a nice tang to these steaks. Steaks I used were thinner and smaller. Also I used water instead of beef broth--still very tasty. This can certainly be a weekday meal. Will definitely make this again. I served this dish with an asparagus soup with cheese croutons.

    Great lite version of Steak au Poivre! Easy too. Just added a little garlic because I use garlic in everything :)

    My boyfriend declared this the best meal he's eaten in a long time. I consider that a high compliment, since I think of myself as a decent (and adventurous) cook! For medium-rare steaks that are 1/2" - 3/4" thick, a minute to a minute and a half on each side is plenty of time.

    LOVED this recipe. My steaks were done in more like 2.5 minutes per side, then rested on a plate. Any more and they would've been overcooked. Served with steamed potatoes and the pan-roasted asparagus recipe elsewhere on the CL site. Buy grass-fed and local when you can.
