where did you go?

atwells is federal hill, some of the best italian restaurants in the country are on federal hill

meditteraneo for their pasta dishes
oyster bar or prime for seafood or steak
camilles and old canteen for great italian food
blue grotto for old school italian
andino's if you want to feel like you are in a goodfella's scene
242 is new, love it
siena is one of the more casual, trendy, cheaper restaurants, AWESOME food

Normally I see this done by cooking the peppered steaks in the pan and then deglazing with the sauce.

You missed the best part of the dish!

Deglaze the pan with the beef stock, cognac....add heavy cream and some green peppercorns, let that reduce until it just coats the back of the spoon. Those bits in the pan are the serious flavor

Alternatively if you want to make sure the alch is all out, deglaze with the cognac first, give it a shake, then light the steam on fire to burn off the alch. Better make sure you have some vertical room for that one

Deglazing was definitely an option, but it takes so goddamn long to make the sauce, I just wanted to get that going first..

I'll try it out next time, I can always wrap the steaks up in aluminun foil for a half hour or so....

Shouldn't take too long for the sauce. Steaks cooked, into 200 oven, should be 10-15min or so max for the sauce to be ready. I guess my point is, those bits ARE the sauce
