A delicious classic sauce: low FODMAP peppercorn sauce! Delicious with a meat dish and ideal to serve during the holidays.

How do you make your own peppercorn sauce?

Making peppercorn sauce is not that difficult at all. You only need a handful of ingredients.

The basis of the sauce is a white sauce. I make it with butter, gluten-free flour, and beef stock.

When the base of the sauce is ready, add lactose-free cream and 2 tablespoons of whiskey.

Cognac or whiskey is often used for peppercorn sauce. I chose whiskey, but both whiskey and cognac (brandy) are low FODMAP in small quantities. So you can use either one.

If you want to make the peppercorn sauce without alcohol, you can also skip this part.

A peppercorn sauce is of course not a peppercorn sauce without pepper. So at the end, you add crushed whole peppercorns to the sauce.

These give the peppercorn sauce a nice spicy taste.

What can you serve the pepper sauce with?

Peppercorn sauce is best with a piece of red meat. For example, I like to serve it on top of a steak or with a piece of pork tenderloin.

But it also tastes delicious with chicken.
