  • 1 pound beef, sirloin tip top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick, boneless
  • 2 tablespoon black peppercorns crushed
  • 3 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup shallots or onion, minced
  • 2 teaspoon red hot pepper sauce (eg. Tabasco)
  • 3 tablespoon gin


  • Cut steak into 4 equal portions, and press the peppercorns evenly into both sides. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat until bubbly. Cook steaks 10 to 12 minutes for rare (140 degrees) or to desired doneness, turning once. Remove to a warm platter.
