PEPPERCORN SAUCE - Another classic full flavoured steak sauce that compliments your steak like no other!

2 to 3 tablespoons peppercorns
60g butter
1 shallot, minced
50ml water mixed with juices from your steak cooking pan
60ml double cream

Crush the peppercorns slightly, either using a mortar and pestle or a rolling pin.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add the shallots and saute until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the water mixed with steak juices and boil for another 3 minutes.

Finally, add the cream and reduce the heat to medium. Heat through, but don't allow the peppercorn sauce to boil. Once the sauce is at your desired thickness, test for seasoning. Add salt if necessary.
