  ground pepper to taste

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add the cornstarch and beat well with a whisk or wooden spoon. Cook for 3 min, stirring constantly and taking care not to let it burn. Slowly add the broth, while stirring thoroughly to avoid lumps. Cook over medium heat 4-5 min.
