Grilled Pork with Cracked Pepper Sauce

Grilled Pork with Cracked Pepper Sauce

Peppercorn sauce or Steak au poivre is a type of sauce where creamed sauce together with butter, occasionally liquor (wine, cognac or brandy) and spices are prepared with lots of peppercorn usually black ones are used but green, red and pink are now getting popular. This type of sauce originated from the French cuisine and usually served in a different variety of meats like filet mignon, lamb racks, chicken and even fish.

Today instead of the usual meats where this is used we will be applying them on grilled pork, we will also make a less slightly creamy version which is perfect for this cut of meat.

  1. What a simple, quick, and appetizing meal! Pork is among one of my favorite meats to both cook and eat.

  2. I was making the beef version of this dish the other day, and was thinking that I’d bet it’d be spectacular with pork. I gotta try this! Thanks so much.
