Finally, a good steak
--Steak Sauce

Steak Sauce
Sunset Barbecue Cook Book Copyright 1962

1 bunch green onions
3 cloves garlic, minced
Butter for sautéing
1 cup catsup
½ cup wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon each of celery salt, garlic salt, onion salt, chili powder, dry mustard and dried mixed herbs

Cut up green onions and garlic in small pieces and sauté in butter until brown. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl, then add the sautéed onions and garlic. Marinate steaks in this mixture for 3 hours before grilling.

It's so hard to find good steaks around here, never mind at a decent price. When I saw these T-bones on sale for $4.99/lb, I grabbed them. Never mind the price, they were some of the better looking steaks I've seen locally in quite a while.

This steak sauce is just glorified ketchup but I love ketchup, even on steak so it was a winner in my eyes. I only rubbed a little bit of the sauce on the steak and let it marinate while I was at work. I served the rest of the sauce on the side and even dipped my french fries in it.

It rained all day yesterday but when I got home and started the grill, the sun came out!

Blast From the Past: Big Game Baked Round Steak from December 2005. I have to start using up the venison in our big freezer. My husband is asking for it but I'm just not in the mood. This deer isn't as tasty as the one I used in that recipe.

Question of the Day: What do you like with steak? A-1? Heinz 57? Ketchup? Nothing?

It depends how good a steak it is. I had a delish steak on mothers day and ate it plain. But normally with the cheaper cuts I use A1.

I like to eat my steak naked. As in, no sauce of any kind. :)

If it is cooked to my liking and seasoned properly nothing. But sometimes I get a craving for HP sauce. If the steak is overcooked or a bit tough, I like to have a sliver of pickled hot banana pepper with each bite. Something about that vinegar flavour and bit of heat, although the steak tames that a lot.

I prefer my steak with nothing. I do like au jus if I've broiled it in a pan. This sauce, however, sounds as if it would be good. I just wouldn't use the bought bottled sauce.
