Ground Black Pepper Coarse Grind
Our Ground Black Pepper Coarse Grind is a coarser grade of ground pepper used in many dishes where a more pronounced black pepper flavor is desired. Coarse pepper is the hallmark of Steak au Poivre, which is French Pepper Steak. It is our personal favorite steak served at our favorite Las Vegas restaurant. The pepper flavor comes through by using the coarse grind, but not so much to make it too spicy.
Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum) is made from undersize Green Peppercorns. The Green Peppercorns, which are the unripe fruit from the Piper Nigrum tree, are picked in an immature state and then dried. Black Peppercorns are rather mild but they are intensely fragrant. Pepper is one of the most common spices in the world. Its popularity is due not only to its versatility as a cooking spice but also because of its healing properties Pepper is believed to help cure colds, sore throats and to be helpful with respiratory problems.
Pepper gives off a warm and spicy flavor and it adds a depth to any dish. Pepper combines well with just about any spice. Coarse Ground Black Pepper is wonderful sprinkled on top of salads, pasta, cooked vegetables or sauces, or rubbed into meat before grilling.
