So here’s how this recipe for easy steak au poivre (otherwise known as steak with pepper) came about. We were ambling through a new supermarket near our house recently, and they have an enormous meat counter. And right in the center was a glorious display of pepper-crusted filet mignons, all ready for the cooking. I think the Southern husband actually got a little misty-eyed, and it got my competitive juices flowing, steak-wise.
So I picked up a couple of plain filet mignon steaks and decided I was going to one-up the supermarket steaks with a creamy, slightly boozy sauce to go along with the pepper crust. And let’s just say the Southern husband is cheery again. Ready to kick your steak up a notch? Let’s make it!
This recipe started out as a result of an overabundance of Yukon gold potatoes in my kitchen. With just the Southern husband and me in the house, I like to buy things by twos, but at some point our local market didn’t have loose Yukons. Nope, they only had them in the 5 pound bag, and I needed my Yukons, so I went for the five pound bag.
I finished making what I was making, and then I still had pounds of Yukons left over. And since we have a strict no ingredient left behind rule around these parts, I needed to get inventive…and so I bring you cheesy hash brown nests, which used up a pound of those Yukons and led to ALL kinds of Southern husband happiness. Got a pound of potatoes and a muffin tin? Let’s make them!
