Ok I know its not a Cypriot recipe but we do seem to be sharing others lately...

Typically Pepper sauce would be made with cream but we don't tend to buy cream and never plan to have pepper sauce. Like today when I spotted a couple of beef steaks it was suddenly on the menu. So this is made from mostly store cupboard ingredients.

Pepper Sauce

Ingredients

125ml extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion finely diced (about 200g)
2 tsp freshly cracked black peppercorns
1 tsp salt
½ dried oregano
½ smoked paprika
½ chilli powder
½ tsp garlic purée
1 tsp mustard (english/dijon)
2 tsp tomato purée
½ beef stockpot (or cube)
125ml flour (strong white flour - measured in a measuring cup for the liquid save getting weighing scales out)
1000ml milk
250ml hot water * if needed


Method

get all the ingredients ready as you don't want to leave it once started (doesn't take long to cook)

it should then thicken up as it all heats through (takes 5 to 10 minutes and keep stirring)

if it gets too thick add the hot water.

and serve once its cooked through and at a thick creamy consistancy

It might sound a bit of messing around but when you consider it like making a white sauce (warm oil or fat, add flour and mix in, cook while adding milk and stirring) its only that with some herbs and spices added...

That looks delicious and I must say that I am not a big steak eater but I do like the steak with pepper sauce and so I will be trying that recipe. Thanks for that.

No reason why you can't add cheese ! As I mentioned at the bottom its only a basic starting point... I often change when I'm missing something or when I have something else to hand..
If he likes it cheesy then you could add some grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (a small handfull) once all the milk is added allowing it to cook in... then crumble some stilton at the last minute so its just starting to melt as its served !
