This is a quick merlot and peppercorn sauce which cooks very quickly. You could use any red wine with it. It's very tasty poured over a good steak.
This sauce was pretty good. I will make this again but with some changes. More red wine, and less worchestershire sauce. I added extra garlic, and used olive oil instead of butter. - 18 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Flavor was good, if you could get around the 2-tablespoons of peppercorn. I would try this recipe again, but would drastically reduce the amount of peppercorn or possibly use 1 tsp of plain black pepper. - 13 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Lovely recipe. We also added the steak juices and double cream as we like it a bit smoother. - 08 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
