I'm not sure where to post this, in test kitchen or promotions.  Boss/Mods move it if needed.
 
FREE STEAK SAUCE!
 
My new Steak Sauce prototype needs some reviews!  I have 13 bottles of a new steak sauce that I will send out for the bargain price of sending me comments and reviews. 
 
 
Back story-
For several years now I've hosted a Making Hot Sauce class at the Grange hall in the winter.  This year, I asked the attendees what sauces they wanted to make and one reply was a 'spicy steak sauce'.  Hmmm OK...but in all of my life, I'd never even tasted Steak Sauce!  Pretty much lived by the thought that if the steak was good, it didn't need a sauce on it. 
 
But they wanted to make it, so I went to the store and bought a couple sauces (A-1 and Western Family) to taste what we were supposed to be making.  Well, those are interesting sauces, but I figured we could do better.
 
With what they made in the class and a few more tweaks to the recipe, here is the latest version of- 
Texas Creek Spicy Steak Sauce!

Comments needed-


general flavor


texture


heat level


acidity/sweetness balance


usability


any other comments...the usual~ :)


 


If you want to try the test batch and will commit to sending me comments (PM is fine), then go ahead and dibs on a bottle.  PM your mailing address to me and I'll get them in the mail over the next few days.


 


Thanks!

Had it on a Rib Steak last evening.

Color: Perfect

Flavor: Excellent, paired perfectly with the sear

Acidity: Perfect balance.

Consistency: Perfect. Not to thin and not to thick like those national brands.

I found it to be a perfect blend and balance of ingredients.

I don't generally use a lot of steak sauces other than typical A1 or 57

I would put yours better than both and will be placing an order once you are ready for sales.

I enjoyed it very much. Wouldn't change a thing.

I will be taking to my Dads later today and will be putting it in the burger meat before grilling.

Just made pork chops and I thought it was really good. It had enough of the a1 flavor in my opinion. I also didnt think it was too sweet, texture was good.

Was it supposed to be a spicy steak sauce? If so it needs some heat. But as a steak sauce I thought it was awesome. The wife likes it too, and she usually doesn't eat much sauce.

Overall I think its a very usable sauce. (Although I would never disrespect my rib eye) lol. It would be good on burgers for sure.

In my first review I had several bloody marys, and wanted to have another go at it without the booze.

So...I grilled up another Rib steak and left it naked other than a generous 3 finger pinches of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper.

Review #2:

Consistency is spot on.

Flavor: I definitely noticed a very sweet floral note on the pallet. Some kind of fruit comes to mind? Mango? Pineapple? Grapes?
While it still has that zing you expect in a steak sauce the fruity overtone is good but kinda overpowered the beef flavor I thought.

Heat: cant say I noticed any, even took a glug right off the bottle. Cant say I 2anted heat but it needed something to give it a punch for my taste buds. No idea what that would be.

Acidity: yes its there. I assume from the fruit. While the sweetness is good It left me wanting a bolder flavor and less on the sweetness.

Yes!! I still think it's a great steaksauce beginning but would like less fruity and sweet overtone and a little more zip to it.

As is I think it would pair very well with Caribbean style meat dishes.

Didnt get the chance to do burgers last weekend so will do them this weekend and put up the results for that as well.

:cheers:

I've had this on flank steak, pork tenderloin and baked chicken thus far.  Here are my notes:

 

Tastes great.  Good balance of flavor between sweet & savory.  Tinge of fruitiness with sweet notes at the end.  Texture is perfect, wouldn't change a thing.  Not spicy at all really though.  Seems like there might be some chipotle in it, so could add a bit more of that to creep up the heat.  Or make a big ass batch and hit it with a touch of pure evil....

 

Overall as is I'd give it an 8.  If it were billed as a spicy steak sauce I'd dock you a point though.  That said I'd reach for this over A1 or Heinz 57 all day.
