  2. Press each side of the fillets into the cracked peppercorns and let the beef stand about an hour to absorb the flavor.

  4. Remove the steaks to a platter and allow to rest.

  5. Add cognac to the pan and heat for just a few seconds and then set ablaze.

  8. Pour over fillets and sprinkle with parsley.

  9. Option 2: Skip the cream (but it's better with).
