How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Coat steaks with olive oil.
  • In a bowl, combine coffee, cinnamon, black pepper, salt, chili powder, cayenne and sugar.
  • Dust steaks with the spice mixture.
  • Heat a large, flat, cast-iron skillet or griddle over high heat, until smoking.
  • Sear the steaks, in batches if necessary, until caramelized and brown; do the same to the other side.
  • If using a skillet, transfer steaks to a baking pan and cook for 8 minutes.
  • Turn steaks and cook for another 8 minutes, or until medium rare. Remove from oven and allow to rest while you make the sauce.
  • Using the same cast-iron pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and sauté until light brown.
  • Add beef stock to deglaze, then the brandy.
  • Add peppercorns and simmer to reduce by one-third.
  • Season with salt to taste.
  • Put the steaks onto four plates and drizzle sauce on top.
