It's a recipe you can whip up easily for a special weekday treat or save for special occasions when you need to wow friends and family.

- 14 oz NY strip
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
For the au Poivre sauce
- 2 ea shallot diced very fine
- 2 tbs cracked black pepper
- 1 tbs unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup Cognac
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp fresh thyme
1.30-45 minutes before cooking, take your steak out of the refrigerator and allow it to come up to room temperature.
2.Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
3.Rub your steak liberally with olive oil, salt, and pepper about 20 minutes before cooking.
4.You will need a large skillet to cook your steak. Put your skillet over high heat and wait until it is very hot.
5.Sear the steak on all sides to lock in that fantastic flavor and caramelize the outside. The high heat will start to render the marbled fat, creating that juiciness the NY strip is so famous for.
6.Put the steak in a 425-degree oven for 6 minutes, retaining the pan and steak juices. While it is cooking you will have time to make your steak sauce.
7.In the pan that you cooked your steak in add the butter and shallots. Cook them over medium heat until they are glossy and translucent.
8.Add cracked black pepper and use the Cognac to deglaze the pan. Deglazing helps to loosen those lovely steak morsels still left on the pan. These are a source of immense flavor that will add depth to our sauce.
9.Add the cream and fresh thyme.
10.Reduce the heat until the sauce starts to thicken, stirring as you go.
11.Take the steak out of the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes.
12.Slice your steak into 1" slices and serve the sauce over the steak or in a small jug at the side.
