Steak is especially delicious with a wine sauce that blends with the pan juices. Four steaks provide plenty for steak lovers, but you can adjust the amount to suit the appetites of your guests. Serve with watercress.

Sprinkle both sides of steak with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat oil over high heat; fry steaks, turning once, until browned and medium-rare inside, about 8 minutes. Transfer to plate; tent with foil and keep warm.

Drain fat from skillet; add wine and bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Boil until reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Add beef stock, brandy (if using), thyme and peppercorns; return to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

In small bowl, mash butter with flour; whisk into sauce and simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in parsley. Slice steaks if desired; serve with sauce.
