I stumbled across this recipe a few months ago and decided to give it a try today, enjoying it while watching the SuperBowl.  Here is the original recipe:

TIME: 40 minutes


1 Yellow Onion, chopped

2 cloves Garlic, minced

1 cup Ketchup

1 medium sized Lemon, juiced

1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce

1/4 cup White Wine Vinegar

1/4 cup water

2 to 3 tablespoons Tamari

2 tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar

1 tablespoon {heaping} Dijon Mustard


In a sauce pan combine the chopped onion, garlic and the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium/medium-high and simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.

Pour the thickened sauce through a mesh strainer {that has been placed into a large bowl} to catch the onions and garlic, use a spoon or spatula to press the sauce through. Wipe any excess off the bottom of the strainer and into the bowl.

Let the steak sauce cool before transferring to an airtight container and into the fridge.

Can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.


Here is the link to the original recipe with great photos (such as the one above): http://www.simplyscratch.com/2013/03/homemade-steak-sauce.html

I had to make some substitutions… I didn’t have tamari, Dijon mustard or white wine vinegar so I added garlic salt to make up for some of the lost saltiness, 1 tsp of regular mustard and 1 TB apple cider vinegar along with 3 TB Pinot Noir.


We were also a bit short on marmalade so I substituted 3 TB of orange dipping sauce. Without adding equal portions of marmalade to the original recipe, which is for steak sauce, you’d have steak sauce.  Because the third times a charm, and just in case you’re still unsure, the original recipe is for steak sauce.  🙂


Tastes phenomenal!!

I bought about a pound of country style pork ribs on sale from Fry’s and put them in the crock pot for about 24 hours… the meat was totally falling off the bone with a spoon.  After separating the fat, here is the result.


And the finished product:



God bless
