Our homemade steak sauce strikes the perfect balance between tangy, smoky, and vinegary, with just a hint of sweetness to round it off. It’s the only steak sauce you’ll ever need!

How to Make Steak Sauce

Forget about buying steak sauce from the store. Making your own is incredibly simple and allows you to customize the flavors to your liking. The ingredients are likely already in your pantry, so you won’t have to make any special trips to the store.

Steak Sauce recipe

The base of the sauce is a combination of ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, and vinegar. You can use either white vinegar or white wine vinegar, depending on what you have on hand. Dijon mustard, garlic, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes add a burst of flavor and just the right amount of spice. Be sure to use dijon mustard for the best taste and texture.

To make the sauce, simply mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce will thicken and reduce slightly. Once it has cooled to room temperature, transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
