Keto Peppercorn Steak Sauce

This Keto steak sauce is deliciously rich and creamy, infused with the heat of crushed whole peppercorns. Our Keto take on this classic steak sauce is quick and easy to make, with minimal prep and cooking time. Perfect served over your favorite cut of steak or drizzled over roasted or grilled meats.

What Makes a Sauce Keto?

It can be incredibly simple to recreate your favorite sauces and dressings on a Keto or low carb diet. By default, some sauces may already be Keto, however others may include non-Keto compliant hidden ingredients like refined sugars and added flour to thicken. The best way to ensure a sauce is Keto friendly is to prepare from scratch using ingredients you know to be compliant with your diet. Sauces are also an excellent way to add extra fats to your meals - perfect to bring added fats to protein-heavy dishes or served with low carb vegetables. We have used heavy cream, beef stock and butter to create the base of our sauce with some cream cheese to help thicken. The sauce is then gently simmered with crushed peppercorns until smooth and creamy.

Serving Suggestions

Our Keto peppercorn steak sauce is perfect generously drizzled all over your favorite cuts of steak. Alternatively, the sauce makes an excellent alternative to a traditional gravy. Perfect served with a Sunday lunch of roasted meats and vegetables.

Recipe Steps

steps 3

12 min

  • Step 1

    Add the butter and cream cheese to a small saucepan. Set the saucepan over a low heat. Stir the butter and cream cheese together, melting gently to combine until completely smooth. You will need to use a soft, spreadable cream cheese to ensure it melts easily.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Add the heavy cream and stock to the saucepan. Stir well to combine with the cream cheese and butter. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer. We have used beef stock for its rich flavor, perfect to complement steak. You may however use a chicken or vegetable stock if preferred. You may also wish to season the sauce with salt and pepper. This will depend on the strength of seasoning in your stock. Please adjust your macros for any changes.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Add the whole peppercorns to a mixing bowl or mortar. Gently crush them so they break down ever so slightly using the base of a rolling pin or pestle. You may use more or less peppercorns as desired to suit your personal tastes. Be sure to adjust your macros for any changes. Add the crushed peppercorns to the sauce and stir well. Simmer the sauce gently until thickened and piping hot through. This should take about 2-3 minutes. If you would prefer a thinner sauce you may add extra stock as desired.
