One of our favourite steak recipes is Entrecôte au Poivre from Supercook.
Sirloin steak is coated in crushed black peppercorns and a brandy and cream sauce is poured over. We served the steaks with mushrooms and croquet potatoes. Superb.
We opened a bottle of Selvascura Principe Strozzi Toscana 2010, a full-bodied Italian red from the Sunday Times Wine Club. This Super Tuscan wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
We detected black fruit aromas on the nose followed by black fruits and cherry sweetness on the palate. There was a spicy finish with good acidity.
A very enjoyable mouthful and great with the steak.
