very yummy looking!
I personally like to have some more significant pepper texture in my sauce. I take the whole peppercorns and do a rough crack to them. To add some nice color, I'll use a mix of black/white/green/red peppercorns.

i'll use very very coarse pepper on the steak itself... sometimes i'll use the mix too, depends on what I buy... tellicherry pepperscorns is what i'm stocked with right now... amazing

Looks delicious, how come you put it in the oven for 7min over continuing to sear it?

I make mine much different...

I use whole peppercorns that are flash ground in the spice grinder, leaving the grind very course. The cracked pepper is pressed into the meat. Then I sear the steaks in a hot cast iron pan, transfer to a baking sheet and either finish in the oven or return to the pan once the base of the sauce is made. At this point you can do a quick sautee on some shallot, onion, I've even tossed in button or sliced mushrooms. Add cognac to the pan, where it will flame and use it to deglaze the pan (the good stuff is stuck to the pan), add the cream and let it cook. You can return the steaks to the pan and pan baste them to finish cooking, this will really infuse the flavors into the meat.

Russo, I've acutally never heard of the au poivre cooking that long. Any place I've seen it made at does it the quick way.
Wait.. So if i am to understand this correctly the steak is returned to the pan after the oven simply to infuse the Au Poivre sauce for a very short time correct?
So..
1. Sear steak in pan
2. Move steak to oven
3. Flámbé cognac and add the remaining elements of the Au poivre to pan
4. Finish steak breifly in pan containing Au Poivre

Correct
I've come a long way since this thread lol.....

The issue with my previous recipe was that i was using enough for like, 12 friggin steaks. With that much cream, you needed to cook it low because if you cook it on high, the cream and butter will separate, then leave you with a sauce looking like an STD

But ya... cook the steak, take it off and let it rest, hit the pan with cognac, let it deglaze, add some butter, shallots, whole peppercorns, and cream... within 5 min your sauce should be ready to go and your steak will be properly rested.

I have now learned to cook the steak a little lower that way it cooks 100% in the pan, no stove necessary. Cool on a rack and tent it to keep i warm.

i didn't enjoy burning the outside of the steak, plue the oven at 350 cooks it a little more delicately than keeping it on a hot pan. Allows the steak to cook a bit more evenly as well.... however like i mentioned, i've turned the heat down just enough to get a perfect sear as soon as the steak is ready to be flipped

I'll say something that I am not sure that most people are not going to agree with...

If you're going to cook it all the way in a pan, flip frequently.

i actually agree on this, however i won't flip it for the first time until it has a nice char on it... if the crust is still gray, leave it. then flip frequently, and also sear the sides as well, a 30-45 second hit will do the job.
