First photo - Garlic infused olive oil, sea salt and cover with black pepper.

The steaks may look black but remember they are covered in black pepper. Inside was perfect. (Forgot to take pic).

When in doubt add more pepper.


  • Wow, I like pepper crusted steak, that is on steroids.  Would have been good to post a pic of a cut.  What is really important is if you think it was a success.  Congrats.

  • That looks like my kind of steak! I do a mean au Poivre where I crust the hell out of them with pepper. I have to hold off on the wifes though. Your crust looks perfect to me. As long as you have a strong beer or wine that can stand up to the pepper and a sauce (if you're into that sort of thing) I say the more pepper the better. Making my mouth water seeing those pics! Bet the garlic olive oil added a nice flavor. I haven't tried any infused oils on the grill yet, maybe I'll have to though.

    Thankis RocEGG.  You make a very good point about the importance of the beverage selection with the meal.  To me, that is as important as the meal.  With my steak i had a Stone Double Bastard Ale which can stand up to anything.  My wife is not a beer drinker so a local chambourcin was served which is fuller than a pinot but not quite a cab.  All-in-all we were happy with the meal.

    Next time i will provide a cut pic. 

    Have a good day!

  • Peppered fillet sounds really good right about now while at lunch.  I need to get a mini for my office, wonder if that is tax deductible, ha ha.

    I have a large, small and just recently this mini.  I'm telling you, i use the mini more than the other two combined.  Of course, for most cooks it's just the wife and I.  I've rigged a way to do a slow cook on the mini but why would I as i have the L and S.

    When in doubt add more pepper.
  • I did a black pepper-coated eye of round roast a couple of weeks ago. It was really, really good. I cooked it exactly the same as the oven recipe, using indirect heat and a drip pan 1/3 full of water.

    Good idea. More pepper more better!
