4 (7-ounce) top sirloin steaks

4 cups water

1/2 (1-ounce) package au jus mix

2 tablespoons margarine

2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup heavy cream (recommended: Minor's Culinary Cream)

2 ounces brandy

1 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground coarse black pepper


  1. Heat a grill to medium. Put the steaks the grill and cook to desired doneness.
  2. Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the au jus mix and the brandy. Let boil for 10 minutes. While that cooks, in a separate small saucepan, combine the margarine and the flour to make the roux. Let the roux cook for 5 minutes. Add roux to the au jus mixture and stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Stir in the cream and the black pepper. Arrange the steaks on serving plates and serve drizzled with the sauce.
