I'm all set to make green peppercorn steak for dinner tonight, but realized my peppercorns in brine had an expiration date three years ago. I've never used green peppercorns, but a gal's gotta wonder... how bad can they go? I opened the can (which was not bulging) and it smells peppery in there. Two stores later, it's clear it's those old peppercorns or nothing.
Recipe calls for:
2 T shallots
2T canned green peppercorns
Oh yeah, I'm not such a hot meat cook either--this was a special Leap Day surprise for my guy who loves Australian-style pepper steak. Sooooooo, what's a gal to do?
Thanks for any and all help!!
