Filet Mignon with Green Peppercorn Cream Sauce

    1 3/4 cups beef stock or canned beef broth
    3 tablespoons butter
    4 (6 to 8 ounce) filet mignon steaks (each about 1 inch thick)
    1/4 cup chopped shallots
    1 cup whipping cream
    3 tablespoons Cognac or brandy
    2 tablespoons drained green peppercorns in brine

  Boil stock in small saucepan until reduced to 3/4 cup, about seven
 minutes. Meanwhile, melt butter in large skillet over medium-high
 heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Cook steaks to desired
 doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steaks
 to plate (do not clean skillet).

  Add chopped shallots to same skillet and saute 2 minutes. Remove
 from heat. Add reduced beef stock, 1 cup whipping cream, 3 tablespoons
 Cognac and green peppercorns. Boil until mixture thickens to sauce
 consistency, about 6 minutes. Season sauce to taste with pepper.
 Spoon sauce over steaks and serve.
