I did this steak separately from the sauce, using just the crushed peppercorns and a light sprinkling of kosher salt. I omitted the lemon pepper because it seemed total contrast to the red wine and brandy later used, plus it would oversalt the beef. Also if you are using a good quality, well marbled piece of beef, you do not need to cover the taste of the meat itself dramatically. Mushrooms were a great addition, and I allowed them to cook longer in the sauce so they were juicy and tender with taste. Overall I think it is a good recipe.
