Coaching Points:


Pat dry steaks. Sprinkle both sides evenly with seasoning salt and the cracked peppercorn. 

Pound each side with a meat tenderizer. In a large, heated skillet, sear the steaks without crowding for 6-7 minutes on each side. Add one minute for medium. Remove the steaks and place on a plate and let stand lightly covered.


Leave enough juice from steaks to cover the bottom of the pan. Add shallots, mushrooms, and brandy. Cook for about 15 seconds if the brandy flames up let it burn out itself 


Add the 3/4 cup of beef broth and boil until it is reduced down by half. Add chopped parsley. Strain out shallots and mushrooms. Place on top of each steak and pour the broth in side bowls for an incredible sauce to dip your steak in.
