Peppered Steak with Barbecue Sauce

For delicious peppered steak try preparing your steak with a juicy rump steak.

I first tried this steak recipe many years ago while visiting close friends in Germany. What I like most about the way the steak was prepared is the garlic butter that was added to the top and french fries that came along with the dinner.

The solid pepper taste is what makes this delicious peppered steak recipe so great. The sauce uses simple, everyday ingredients, and you can whip up a great meal in no time at all!
