homemade steak sauce

i love my steaks and if they have to come with the steak sauce, i prefer something homemade instead of just sticking to A1 sauce.

a few days ago, i had a craving for some steak with steak sauce and i wasn't willing to settle for ready made ones or A1 sauce so the next better way was to google for a recipe!

Google is everything to me.

it never fails. its like a life line or something very close to that.

Google knows everything and it doesn't mind me asking it many questions every single day. 
I think thats what makes it sooo lovable. 

so, i found a recipe from HERE which i am going to cut and paste for you below for your easy access.

I think that this is really one of the best around and like what most reviews about this said, you really need to taste it with meat to fall in love with it.
on its own, its not that great but have it with any type of meat, i think it's going to work out.

in fact, i think this sauce is good for christmas too because of the color of it and because it uses raspberries!

one thing to remember, not to have this with spicy wine. 

i had two sips before i gave up. On the wine. ( mental note to do more research on the types of wine i like and those which i can't take more than 2 sips )


  • 2 tablespoons raspberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar ( i used only 1 tablespoon )
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons malt vinegar
  • 5 drops hot pepper sauce ( i substituted it with ground black pepper and also added some garlic powder)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. In a saucepan over high heat, blend raspberry jam, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, malt vinegar, hot pepper sauce, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes, or until thickened.

Easy Peasy right? Right. 

Oh yes, before we came back, we had coffee and a huge chocolate cake at this cafe in MBS.
it was a nice, relaxed afternoon but the best part was lazing around at home in the evening while the inevitable monday creeps in slowly but surely.

ps: we were happy. we just like to put on cool and cold looks for the pictures. its a couple thing. 

Have a beautiful weekend ahead ;)
