  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Season the steak with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook to the desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

  • Remove the skillet from heat and carefully add the cognac. Return to the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the cream and cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes more.
