I absolutely love a good steak. I’m more of a skillet steak kinda girl and lately I’ve been loving this peppercorn sauce recipe. It’s one that I made when my husband and I were first married and is one that every time I make it I wonder why I haven’t made it in a while. It really is perfect on a steak for a date night at home.

I start by cooking my steaks in a hot cast iron skillet like in this skillet steak with gorgonzola herbed butter recipe and this rib eye steak recipe. Once the skillets have cooked to just the perfect temperature for whomever I’m cooking them for, I remove them to a plate to rest as I make the peppercorn sauce.

For the peppercorn sauce, I add a little butter and olive oil and heat until the butter has melted and then I whisk in the chicken stock, Dijon mustard, heavy cream and then the whole peppercorns. Occasionally, if I really want to amp up the pepper flavor, I’ll also stir in a bit of freshly cracked black pepper. Talk about delicious!

Once the peppercorn sauce is ready, I drizzle it over top right before serving. It is so delicious and adds just the perfect amount of richness.

Here’s my skillet steak with Peppercorn Sauce Recipe. I think you’ll love it.

  1. This sauce was DELICIOUS!  SO simple, too!  I upped the dijon mustard to 1 tsp. to suit our personal tastes.  Just for kicks, added a dash of Worcestershire sauce, too.
