I'd agree on the cut, but wouldn't quibble over a nice short loin strip done that way; I think the important thing is to find a cut that can be perfectly cooked without the pepper burning, so it should be something pretty tender. As far as I know, black pepper can be, and often is, used for biftec au poivre. The green peppercorn and cream version would be specified as poivre vert, generally, at least within my experience...
