And, you thought peppercorn crusted steak was reserved for fancy steak houses, well- think again! This recipe is so easy but tastes gourmet!
Per person:

1 4-ounce lean cut of tenderloin or filet mignon steak, trimmed of fat
1 tablespoon whole peppercorns (black or mixed colors)
1 Process peppercorns in a food processor, peppermill or coffee grinder until slightly cracked.
2 Rub the peppercorn mixture over both sides of the steak. Heat a nonstick pan to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
3 Cook the steak on both sides to desired doneness. Medium = 160 F and has a pale pink center. Well done = 170 F and has a gray or brown center.
4 Try serving with garlic mashed potatos and steamed green beans!
