How bad can green peppercorns in brine go?

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:
2T butter
1T oil
4 steaks
2 T shallots
2T canned green peppercorns
1T dijon
2T cream

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!!
