tender, drain the pasta; there is no need to rinse pasta. Discard the liquid and serve

CRACKED PEPPER STRIP STEAK
WITH MICHELOB PAN SAUCE
CRACKED PEPPER STRIP STEAK WITH MICHELOB PAN SAUCE –
Serves 2
By Executive Chef Sam Niemann – St. Louis, Missouri
2- 8 oz. Strip Steaks
(We Use Certified Angus Beef)
2 tbsp. crushed Black Peppercorns
1 tsp. Vegetable Oil
1 tbsp. Butter
Pan Sauce:
2 tbsp. minced Shallots
½ c. Michelob Beer
¼ c. Beef Stock
1 tbsp. 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. Heat the oil and the
butter in a heavy sauté or frying pan over high heat. When the pan is quite hot, lay in the peppered
steaks. Fry for about 2 minutes, until the undersides are well seared. Turn the meat
and cook the second side for about a minute. Press with a finger to test for the slight springiness
that indicates rare. Cook to desired doneness and remove to a warm platter.
Making the pan sauce:
Add the shallots to the pan and sauté briefly, stirring with a spoon to scrape up the drippings.
Lean away from the stove (averting your face) and pour the Michelob into the pan; tilt the edge of
the pan slightly, over the burner flame, to ignite the alcohol. Cook for a few moments more and
then add the stock. Bring the liquid back to the boil, and cook about 1 minute to thicken the
sauce, stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust seasoning. Finally, add the soft butter, swirling the
pan until it melts and incorporates the juices. When blended, pour the sauce over the steaks.
