Stir-fry the meat you would like to serve to taste. Remove the meat from the pan and use the juices from fried beef as a base. Add olive oil, shallots, garlic, and thyme to the pan and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Add brandy and flambé it off the heat.
Return to the heat once the flames have gone down, add stock and reduce to about half.
Strain out the solids and add cream and mustard.
Reduce to about half again, then shut off heat and add green peppercorns.
