This was very good, I used lean sirloin and served it on a bed of spinach with broccoli and a sweet potato. The sauce did not reduce as much as I expected it to but it was still very tasty! And my boyfriend loved it! I did not have and could not find green peppercorns so I just used black. - 1/15/10
