Brandy Peppercorn Sauce with Parmesan

I would not be surprised if someone drank leftover Brandy Peppercorn Sauce with Parmesan straight from the dish. I would also not be surprised if someone wiped the dish clean with their finger then licked their finger clean. I’m not implying I know anyone who has actually done that; I’m just saying I would not be surprised if someone ever did.

I served it with Beef Tenderloin when my family was home for Christmas and I’m pretty sure my two children actually wept tears of joy.

It was the best steak I have ever eaten and a meal that will never be forgotten.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 1/2 shallot peeled & thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup brandy divided (half will be used to deglaze pan after steaks cook)
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock unsalted
  • 1 teaspoon beef granules or 1/2 beef cube
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground or cracked
  • pan drippings (if using)
  • cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • sea salt add only after tasting.

Instructions

  1. Over medium-low heat, melt butter in a 3-quart saucepan. Add shallot and cook until translucent and tender, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Carefully, and away from the heat, stir in 1/2 cup brandy.

  4. Place the pan over medium-low heat and add chicken stock, beef granules (or 1 beef cube), thyme, black pepper.  (If adding in pan drippings, *see note.)  Bring mixture to a low boil, reduce heat to low and cook 8-10 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half.

  5. Remove the thyme sprigs.
  6. Stir in the heavy cream. Keep mixture at a gentle boil, stirring occasionally, about 10-15 minutes or until the sauce is reduced to a little thicker than heavy cream. 

  7. Remove the mixture from the heat and whisk in grated Parmesan cheese.

  8. Once cheese has melted, season to taste.

  9. Serve with Filet of Beef or Beef Tenderloin.
  10. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Brandy Peppercorn Sauce can be made up to three days ahead. When ready to use, reheat the sauce slowly in a small saucepan over low heat.
The sauce can be made with or without pan drippings – also the pan-drippings can be added even if the sauce is made ahead. After the beef is cooked, deglaze the pan with ¼ cup brandy and cook until reduced by half.  Add the deglazed drippings to the already prepared sauce. Bring the sauce to a low boil and cook 3-5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened again.
***Keep leftover sauce refrigerated and in an air-tight container.

    What a delicious sauce!! I can think of a lot of ways to use it...pinned so I can try it! Thanks for the recipe, Susie!

    What an incredible flavor profile you chose for this sauce! I imagine it would be wonderful served over chicken as well as beef!

    where does the beef cube come into play? i see it in the ingredients list but not in the step by step instructions...

      Susie Gall
      Thank you for pointing out to me that I left out when to add the beef cube (or beef granules). I have corrected the recipe to include this step. Hope you enjoy this sauce as much as we do, it is finger-licking good. Thanks so much for stopping by and happy cooking.

        Also I'm adapting this slightly to use cognac instead of brandy, and dicing white mushrooms as well. Thanks for the recipe! It looks unhealthy but I have a cheat day once or twice a week so it's all good :D

    Amazing Sauce! We added chances of freshly fryed crisp bacon, long shredded parmesan! Yam! Thank you!

    I just made this for Christmas dinner and I feel like it isn't thick enough. What do you think I did wrong? It smells delicious and we'll still eat it! Lol

      Hello Dee and Merry Christmas. I'm sorry the sauce didn't turn out thick enough. I made this for Christmas dinner tonight, and noticed I didn't have enough time listed for reducing the sauce. I have corrected the recipe so hopefully the next time you make it, it will turn out just right. Once the Parmesan is added, the sauce thickens even more so keep that in mind, too. Again, I'm so sorry it didn't turn out thick enough. I sure hope you were able to use it. Thank you for your comment - it always helps to have feedback. Happy New Years. Susie
