Put your butter in a sauté pan, over medium to medium high heat. Once the butter starts to melt, add in your sliced strawberries and your freshly cracked black pepper, and sauté until the strawberries begin to soften (about 4 - 5 minutes). As this happens, get a match ready, and pour in your cognac, and fire off the pan (mind your hair). Continue to cook until the alcohol burns off. Reduce the heat to low.
Scoop some of your vanilla ice cream into martini glasses. Gently spoon your strawberry sauce over the top of the ice cream, and garnish with a couple of mint leaves.
