Dixie Quicks peppercorn / steak au poivre @ home

^sorry I did not get a final pic

Got this idea from triple D when they visited Dixie Quicks (Site seems down) in Omaha. YOUTUBE of episode (recipe 2 mins in)
Mixing fresh peppers and onions into the sauce seemed like a great idea since we have modified the standard anyway.

We have been rocking the peppercorn steaks for a long time. It was getting a bit old and we decided to chill on them for a while. I saw the vid and knew we had to try it. I picked up the biggest NY strip I could find, some Anaheim peppers, and onion. I really did not check the steak enough and it was not a good cut at all 🙁 Still decided to try it out because the sauce looked so interesting.

Lightly coated the steak with cracked black tellicherry peppercorns and salt to sear the sides. Loaded it in the toaster oven to cook through.


After searing the steak in some clarified butter in went the onions and peppers to get them sweated.


added some concentrated beef broth to deglaze the fond and begin the sauce.


Added some table cream and simmered the sauce to a consistancy we like and poured over the steak and mashed potatoes. The steak was bad, but the sauce was simply amazing. I doubt we will ever go back to it without the onions and peppers.
