Caribou Steaks with Green Peppercorn Sauce

4 caribou steaks 1" thick
2 cloves garlic (or to taste)
2 Tbls olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

Green peppercorn sauce:
4 Tbls butter
2-3 Tbls cream
1/4 C whole green peppercorns
salt to taste
1 Tbls cognac

Carefully trim away all visible fat. (On the caribou,there's next to NO fat; but if you use beef...trim away!) Combine garlic and olive oil. Pour over steaks and marinate, refrigerated, over night.

Season steaks with salt and freshly ground pepper. Broil or grill 5-7 minutes per side or until meat has only a hint of pink.

For the sauce: In a small sauce pan, melt butter and stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Place the steaks on warmed plates and pour sauce over them.
