Homemade Steak Sauce

Steak sauce as we know it—dark, sweet, and tangy with aromatic spices—is a British invention. In fact, A.1. Steak Sauce, the condiment of choice for many American steak lovers, was invented by Henderson William Brand, the cook to King George IV in the 1820s. This homemade variety is based on one in Secrets of the Still by Grace Firth (EPM, 1983).
