Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes


  • 4 x 6 oz sirloin steaks
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 teaspoon green peppercorns
  • 2 teaspoons coarse grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 8 floz strained Greek yoghurt or 5 fl oz single cream
  • Juice of 2 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Trim excess fat from the steaks. Place some of the fat into a nonstick frying pan and cook over a medium heat to render it. Discard any solid fat.
  • Raise the heat to high and fry the steaks in the pan for 2 minutes each side. Reduce the heat and cook for up to 2 - 3 more minutes each side. Eight minutes time will give a well-done steak; reduce the Cooking time by half for rare meat. Remove the steak from the pan and keep warm in the oven.
  • Chop the shallots finely and add to the pan juices. Cook over a low heat, stirring until lightly coloured. Add the crushed peppercorns, mustard and brandy.
  • Stir in the yoghurt or cream and lemon juice; heat gently and then serve with new potatoes and a salad or crisp vegetables.
