Loyd Grossman Green & Black Peppercorn Pour Over Sauce
Ingredients: Water Double Cream (8%) Modified Maize Starch Cognac (2%) Butter Chiclen Stock (Chicken, Water, Salt) Skimmed Milk Powder Green Peppercorns (0.7%) Garlic Purée Salt Black Pepper (0.3%)
Can be bought at most major supermarkets. I buy it all the time at Sainsburys and cost about £2.08. To be honest I do think that is quite expensive for a pour over sauce but once you try it you will not hesitate to spend the money on this sauce. If you could buy it in bulk I would.
This sauce is best used to pour over steak but I do tend to use it with chicken as well when i'm making my gorgeous chicken stuffed with haggis (see my review for how to make that). Its so easy to use, you just need to pour into a pot and heat gently for about 2-3 mins. The sauce itself has so much flavour and is really spicy which is why I love it. It also has whole green and black peppercorns which is what I find gives it a kick. I would always use this sauce over steak as nothing else compares. Recently I went out for dinner and got a big steak with peppercorn sauce and as it was quite an expensive restaurant so was expecting a really good sauce, especially since you had to pay £2 extra per person. However, the sauce really did not compare to Loyd Grossman and I couldn't help thinking I could get a whole sachet for the price I've paid for this.
Overall, I would definitely 100% recommend this sauce. It can be used for basically anything (lovely over mash potatoe) and gives a nice spicy kick to a blant meal. I tried another cheaper version recently but realised I don't mind paying more for quality and a more enjoyable meal.
