Freshly ground black pepper

½ cup brandy

 

Marinate steak in lemon juice, olive oil and black pepper.

Leave to rest for one hour (or preferably overnight).

 

Cooking method for fillet

Heat black pot until hot (200°C). Do not add olive oil in pot.

Cook the steaks to your taste.

Before removing the steak from the heat, flambé steak in brandy

Serve steak immediately.
