Do you like steak sauce on your steaks? I know some people think it ruins the steak and won’t touch it with a ten foot pole…and then there are other people who put ketchup on fillet mignon…which I think is a little nuts, but, hey, to each their own. I happen to LOVE gobs of steak sauce. Especially on porter house, and strip steak. I use to buy Heinz 57. I don’t really like A1. Well, except on grilled hamburgers, but that’s a different story.

We were out of Heinz 57 the last time we grilled steaks so I decided to create my own version of the classic. Let me just say, it’s WAY better than the bottled stuff. I made mine more garlicy and spicy. Truly, a new condiment has been born. Hold on to your hat.

for approximately 4 oz. steak sauce you’ll need:

1/4 cup ketchup

3 teaspoons yellow mustard

4 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons malt vinegar

3 teaspoons Sriracha hot sauce

1 big clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon onion powder

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

Place all in a medium size canning jar. Cover tightly with lid, and shake vigorously until all ingredients are mixed completely and evenly. Will keep in the refrigerator for a month. If you’d like to give this as gifts, just double or triple the recipe as needed and pack into little 4 oz. canning jars.

    Going to make some of this for my four siblings for Christmas. Think it would grand on a grilled burger, too. Thanks again, Melissa!

    Your sauce is fantastic, just the perfect level of heat. I mad it for myself and my son and we both loved it. I see that you answered someone else’s question above about whether or not this could be canned or not and you replied yes it could be, do you happen to know how many minutes it would need to be pressure canned for? Thank you for such a wonderful recipe.

      Yay!!! I love it too. I’m not sure how long you would need to put this in a pressure canner, but my guess would be the same as you’d do for tomato sauce? That’s just a guess. 🙂 Enjoy!
