Pepper sauce with Cognac

Homemade pepper sauce with Cognac is one of my absolute favorite sauces!
No waiting for wine to reduce, fry onion and pepper, burn off with Cognac, add liquid and bring to the boil, easily and quickly and the result will be great!

If you have no veal broth in the freezer, nno worries, the recipe for one that only takes minutes to make: Veal broth

Remember not to burn Cognac under the kitchen fan, but move the pan to a safe place!
