Steak au Poivre or Steak au Poivre with Rum Sauce for dinner always sounds good in my ears. I do not particularly eat red meat very often but having an extra dose of protein certainly helps. My Steak au Poivre recipe is full of bold flavors because I added my Pineapple Gourmet Hot Sauce.
Steak au Poivre is actually quite simple to prepare. There are several recipes on the internet and in several in cookbooks. The types of meat cuts may be slightly different but it is the taste that is the most important factor in creating an excellent dish in my opinion.
Compared to many recipes, my recipe has a nice blend of herbs and spices. Usually, in a good recipe, the instructions will say to marinate the meat with garlic, black pepper, and salt. With this recipe, not only you marinate the meat with the spices, but you also add red wine to the marinade. Yes!!! Red wine!!!
That’s not all, ladies and gents! After the meat has been marinated, it is seared in unsalted butter and Gourmet Pineapple Hot Sauce then finished in a rum sauce. Can we spell YUMMY in caps! Yes, we can.
The wine tenderizes the meat while the rum adds a smooth and pleasant taste to the finished sauce.
Lastly, both the wine and the rum do not overwhelm the dish. You can use either white or black peppercorn.
