  • 185 ml beef broth
  • 125 ml heavy cream

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, add the brandy and simmer rapidly, over medium to medium-high heat, until it has mostly reduced and you can no longer smell the strong alcohol smell (about 1 min).
  3. Add the broth, bring to simmer and let it simmer rapidly for 3 minutes or until it reduces by a third.

  4. Turn heat down to medium. Add cream, pepper, and mushroom mixture and stir to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until it thickens (do not let it boil rapidly).
