4 (6-ounce) beef fillets (have the butcher cut them in 1/2 to make 8 (3-ounce) fillets)
1 cup coarsely cracked black peppercorns
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons finely diced garlic
2 teaspoons finely diced shallots
1/3 cup brandy or cognac
2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons pure clover honey
1/4 cup stone ground mustard
after removing from heat the filets will continue to cook, so better under than over. 1 to 2 minutes per side for rare (cold red center); 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare (warm red center); 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium (hot pink center); 7 to 8 minutes per side for medium well (hot very little pink center); 8 to 9 minutes per side for well (hot center NO pink at all).
