This sauce is great on steak and chips. We have it a lot through the summer in Australia. Serve with a nice crisp salad makes a wonderful meal. Dried parsley may be used in place of the fresh.

After adding all of the listed ingredients and cooking the sauce as instructed, I thought that it tasted just a little bit on the bland side. I added a lot more garlic powder, sprinkled some parmesan cheese in it , and also added a heaping tablespoon of margernine to it. After the additions, I thought that it tasted much better. I will definitely make it again, and add the extras. Read More

I did not like this at all but my husband loved it so it gets a three. To me it was like eating steak covered with fat. He was dipping his pieces in the pan though so maybe it just wasn't for me. Thanks though and I will prolly make it again but just for him. Read More

Followed directions (except used dried parsley) and found the sauce a nice thick smooth consistency but bland. Gave 4 stars because it was a nice base to play with... I added more garlic some seasoned salt some italian herbs and just kept tasting until I loved it. Nice on tilapia!! Read More
