Although it can be grilled with success, traditionally steak au poivre is panbroiled or sautéed. The pepper for steak au poivre must be crushed in a mortar, cracked with a rolling pin or whirled in a blender to make rather course pieces. Do not be afraid to use a generous amount. Freshly crushed pepper is not hot.
