Easy Creamy Pepper Sauce

When it comes to a creamy pepper sauce, it doesn’t get much better than this. Thin, yet delightfully smooth, it boasts a ton of peppery goodness. With hints of garlic, onion, and a touch of zest from the lemon juice, this sauce is a versatile companion that can enhance any dish. But there’s something special about pairing it with a juicy, smoky grilled steak.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 cups whipping/heavy cream
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • salt to taste


  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan then add the onion and saute until soft.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds before adding the pepper and herbs.
  3. Gently toast the pepper until fragrant then pour in the cream.
  4. Season with lemon juice and salt and allow to simmer gently for 10-15 minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened to your preference.
  5. Serve.
