A classic in every French cookbook, Steak au Poivre is the perfect main course for a romantic meal.
Season both sides of each steak with the salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat, and then sauté the steaks, 2 at a time, for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Transfer the steaks to a heatproof dish and keep them warm in a 175 F oven.
Pour any leftover liquid from the skillet and lower the heat to medium.
Add the shallots and 1 piece of butter; sauté for 5 minutes, until cooked.
Carefully add Cognac (it may flame) and bring to a boil for 2 to 3 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Stir in cream and other piece of butter; heat through, stirring constantly.
Serve over steaks immediately.
