Butter Sprinkle salt to taste on the top and bottom of the steaks, and then press each side into the cracked peppercorns, encrusting the steaks lightly or heavily, to your liking.

Making the pan sauce: Add the shallots to the pan and sauté briefly, stirring with a spoon to scrape up the drippings.
