What is served with steak in France?

Chef's answer
It's typically served with a rich, creamy pan sauce flavored with cognac or brandy ladeled on top. Cognac is the traditional ingredient since steak au poivre is a French recipe and cognac is a type of brandy made in France. So to be truly authentic, use cognac, but any good quality brandy will also work.Sep 29, 2020
