Ingredients


300 g cream I use the 20% fat variant for cooking.
80 g Gudbrandsdalsost To make it sweeter and more cheesy, add more cheese to taste. Going up to 90g or 100g should be safe, but above that the cheese taste can become a bit overpowering.
10 g beef bouillon Or use 1 cube if you have bouillon in cubes.
3 tbsp game stock
1 tsp corn starch Optional
1 tbsp juniper berries
1 tbsp black pepper

Directions


  • 300 g cream | I use the 20% fat variant for cooking.
  • 10 g beef bouillon | Or use 1 cube if you have bouillon in cubes.

mix cream and beef bouillon in saucepan:

Add the cream and the beef buillion to the saucepan.


heat the cream over medium heat untill boiling:

Do you like the taste of burnt milk? No? Stir that sauce!


  • 80 g Gudbrandsdalsost | To make it sweeter and more cheesy, add more cheese to taste. Going up to 90g or 100g should be safe, but above that the cheese taste can become a bit overpowering.

slice the cheese:

Prepare the cheese in thin slices so that melting it into the sauce goes smoother.


  • 1 tbsp juniper berries
  • 1 tbsp black pepper

grind the pepper and juniper:

If you use whole peppercorns and juniper beries (as I think you should given the slightly better taste compared to the little effort it is to do), now is the time. Otherwise just make sure you have them at hand.


Stir in the cheese:

A slice at a time, add the cheese to the now simmering cream until you have dissolved it all. (Remember that it takes less heat to keep something warm than it takes to heat it up. At this point you probably want to turn the heat down a bit.)


Add the pepper and juniper:

Add the pepper and juniper to the sauce. Stir well.


  • 3 tbsp game stock

Add the game stock:

Add the game stock.


  • 1 tsp corn starch | Optional

Stir in the corn starch:

Stir in the cornstarch. Make sure there are no lumps


Simmer while stirring:

Stir the sauce until it has thickened as much as you want.
