I'm not a fan of brandy in my sauces so love making peppercorn sauce without and it is really easy to make naturally gluten free even when some restaurants insist on adding wheat flour. This non alcoholic peppercorn sauce is perfect over steak, it is beautifully creamy and packed full of flavour.

2 small onions
2tbsp peppercorns

The best pepper sauce I ever had was dark in colour and had no cream or brandy in it ! It was in Lanzarote about ten years ago ! They told me what was not in it but wouldn't tell me what was in it ! But it was excellent and was just right ! Not over peppery ! Any idea how they made it as Id love to know !?

I'd presume they just skipped the cream and probably reduced the stock down to make it thicker.

Worcester sauce is generally NOT gluten free

Lea and Perrins in gluten free according to Coeliac UK and Lea and Perrins as barley is below 20ppm. Gluten free worcester sauce that doesn't contain barley is also available in free from aisles (Asda it is most commonly found in)

Great recipe Alison, but was just wondering what beef stock you used that was GF.
