Green Peppercorn Marsala Sauce

Marsala wine: is a wine produced in the region surrounding the Italian city of Marsala in Sicily.  While the city’s natives sometimes drink “vintage” Marsala, the wine produce for export is universally fortified similar to Port, Madeira and Sherry. (Wikipedia)

If you are looking for an easy sauce to go with steak, look no further.  We were introduced to this sauce in a restaurant and decided if we could replicate it.  As it turns out, it tastes quite similar and even better using fresh peppercorns.  This sauce is easy to make and pairs well with beef.  You only need 4 ingredients and a bit of time.
