    We love this recipe at our house. It's easy and very good. We usually double the sauce so there's plenty. From Bon Appetit.

      The flavor of the cognac peppercorn sauce is so good, but I did have some problems with it thickening. I must have simmered it for 45 minutes and it never did get thick. Ended up with only about a 1/4 cup of the sauce. I don't have a clue what I did wrong, but the flavor of what I had was awesome. Thanks.
