Do you like steak sauce? I certainly do. I put on burgers, fries, sandwiches, Indian food, eggs, and even steaks! If you use steak sauce like I do you run into two big problems:

1: Running out
2: Paying exorbitant prices for it

Following this simple - and customizable - recipe, you can make your own steak sauce that is surprisingly similar, and possibly superior to those store-bought kinds. Plus, it's so much cheaper, you don't need to save it for special occasions.

What you'll need to make about 8oz of sauce: (You may already have it all!)
-6oz Tomato Ketchup/Catsup (I just use store brand)
-1.5oz Worcestershire sauce (again using the cheap brand here)
-Hot sauce to taste (Optional - I like Tabasco, but try whatever you like)
-8oz empty food-safe bottle (I suppose you could reuse a commercial steak sauce bottle)

Step 1: Start with the Ketchup

I mix this right in the bottle so it's easy and there's no cleanup, but you do sacrifice about 1/2oz of room in the bottle for shaking purposes. If you're making a big batch, filling lots of bottles, or just prefer to wash dishes, feel free to do all the combining/mixing in a bowl.

Add about 6oz of ketchup to the bottle. If you have one of the squeeze bottles of ketchup, this is easy. Just don't overfill - too much ketchup makes the whole thing taste like, well, ketchup.

My favorite thing about this is how you describe it. Funny and to the point. Will be making this soon! Thanks for sharing!
I remembered seeing this article title a few months ago, and my most excellent wife made steak tonight, was getting sick of plain woostershire. I made her try this sauce, and she grabbed the dish I made it in! Had to remind her we're trying to set an example of sharing for our young'uns!<br>Great sauce recipe!
Sounds easy enough. I wonder if you could vacuum seal... Would it be safe on the shelf?
seems to me like a leah and perrins. seems yummy though
1.5 oz is equivalent to 3 Tablespoons.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> I assume you are talking liquid measurements.<br /> <br /> 1 ounce = 2 Tablespoons<br /> 1 Tablespoon = 0.5 ounce<br /> 3/4 Tablespoon = 0.375 ounces<br /> <br /> 1 Tablespoon = 3 teaspoons<br /> .75 Tablespoons = 2.25 teaspoons<br />
Yes, although ambiguous, I'd assumed by &quot;3/4 tbsp&quot; <a href="../../../../member/waaronw/" rel="nofollow" style="margin: 0.0px;" title="view waaronw's profile">waaronw</a> meant &quot;3 or 4 tbsp&quot;, not &quot;three quarters of a tbsp&quot;, or it's nowhere near 1.5oz.<br /> <br /> Might be worth clarifying this for future readers!<br />
Looks good.&nbsp; Might try it soon.<br />
I use the same recipe, but call it homemade tonkatsu sauce. And also love it on pork chops with some white pepper... mmmm, pork.
