Homemade Steak Sauce

let's just be honest here, i love red meat. i don't eat a lot of it, but when i do, i want it to be worth it. i love a good juicy bison burger, and i'm crazy about a nice sliced pink marinated flank steak in a steak fajita

however, a perfectly grilled steak just may top my list. some may think it's sacrilegious, but i love steak sauce on my steaks. yes, i season the steak with freshly ground black pepper and garlic salt and yes, it tastes good just like that. but i really think steak sauce sends it over the top. i like A-1, but i have been wanting to make my own steak sauce for a while now. 

i adapted this recipe from one i found on tasty kitchen. i will probably tweak it in the future, but i kind of think i nailed this one on the head on my first try. the chipolte chili powder adds just a touch of smokiness that is so good and brings out the grill flavor of the beef. it also happens to be good on chicken and with veggies in a stir fry - talk about versatile!

if you love a good steak sauce, ditch the store bought bottle and whip up a batch of this. i stays good in the fridge for quite a while, especially if it's sealed up nice and tight in a mason jar.
