I love sauces on basically everything. I just like having a little something more to top things off. I have made this steak sauce recipe before. It is so easy, and uses ingredients I almost always have in the house. You can whip it together in just a couple of minutes, and it really adds some nice flavor to steaks, or even vegetables, or burgers, or anything else you can think of! The recipe starts with raisins, but don't worry, you can't tell they are in there once you are done. I don't like raisins at all, but once everything is blended together they disappear.
Plump some raisins in warm water
Let them get nice and big
Meanwhile, grab ketchup...
...Worcestershire, dijon and vinegar
Throw everything into a blender, including the raisins
Ready to mix
Blend it all up
Then it's time for the steaks;
season with plenty of salt and pepper
And grill them up!
Pretty and pink, they were a little too done for me,
(I'm a rare girl!)
but I'll adjust the grilling time next time
Grab a salad and spoon on some sauce and
you are good to go!
