Apparently, Steak & Peppercorn Sauce is one of the most popular dishes eaten on Valentine’s Day, no surprise really as it’s a silky seductive sauce that packs a punch to stimulate the senses. However, if you want to make this a dish that will win over your partner then you’ve got to get the key ingredients right. Source your steak from a good local butcher, use green peppercorns - as they have a fruitier more subtle heat and of course it has to be proper beef stock. This is a pretty straightforward sauce to make and will complement the flavour of your steak beautifully.

Happy Cooking!
