Black Peppercorn Sauce

Print PrintShare with Friends


I am a big fan of Steak au Poivre but we rarely cook our steaks in a skillet so I never have the drippings to make the sauce. This is a recipe I found on the internet. I admit it is not as good as the real thing from scratch, but it is quite tasty.
