Does it actually matter when you add pepper to your steak?

When you apply pepper to your steak does have an effect on how that pepper flavor or more especially the piperine flavor. After experimenting myself, I think I'm now a believer in applying some pepper to my steak after it has been seared, but this is not due to the rationale that pepper could burn if you put it on the steak before searing.
