Chef's Steak Sauce

Karen Dean Covington

"Recently on vacation we ate at a wonderful restaurant. The steak I ordered had a magnificent sauce poured over it. I ordered it two nights in a row it was so good. I asked the waiter if he knew what was in it and was shocked when he came back 5 minutes later with the recipe. I have had to scale it down due to the fact that the original recipe make about 4 gallons! I freeze left leftovers in additional containers."

  1. Pour the apple juice, vinegar, soy sauce, molasses, water, and lemon juice into a large pot. Add the ginger, cayenne pepper, mustard, cloves, jalapeno, onion, peppercorns, garlic, horseradish, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally until the sauce has reduced to half its original volume, about 2 hours. Strain through a fine sieve and cool before serving.

This sauce is FABULOUS! I made the recipe to serve 16 and wish I had done 32 servings. That would have given me 2 cups of sauce. I forgot to take into account that it would reduce to half it'...

Fabulous! So much better than anything you can purchase in a bottle in the grocery store, and outrageously easy to make. I actually had everything on hand. Sweet, tart, tangy, spicy, savory -...

I kinda hate to be the one to break the streak, but honestly, this was okay. It wasn't bad, it has actually, a really nifty and unique flavor, but it didn't nearly rock my world as much as it di...

The taste is very upscale, and can transform a cheaper cut of meat into something nice. I am excited though to try it on a nice steak. I cut this in half, because there are only two of us. I...

Great Recipe! Personally I never put sauce on my steak what I like to do with this is cook it with the onions and peppers that I always sauté with my steaks. Like to let it reduce down very good...
