Seared Steak with Sautéed Mushrooms & Brussels Sprouts with a Brandy Peppercorn Cream Sauce

Some would argue that all a steak really needs is salt. Well then, a little pepper isn’t bad. Maybe a pinch of garlic. Sauteed mushrooms are always a nice touch. Sauteed mushrooms in a little peppercorn sauce… OK, so maybe the perfect steak is in the eye (and tastebuds) of the one looking at and eating the steak. So let’s add another option for you to choose from for your perfect steak.
