You should always have a great tasting homemade steak sauce recipe in your back pocket. It’s the perfect way to add flavor and a little something extra to .
Steak sauce is not just for meat-eaters! There are so many great uses for steak sauce when it comes to veggies and plant-based recipes.
A few months back, I was faced with the challenge of using up 4 pounds of portobello mushrooms. Why did I have that many mushrooms you ask? Oh because my Instacart shopper misread my order for 4 mushrooms…and brought me 4 pounds.
I was traveling at the time and sent an order to my house so that I was prepped for the week ahead, one of the amazing reasons I love Instacart. My husband send me a photo of our fridge and wanted to know if I was planning on selling mushrooms out of our home. LOL!
While I love this grocery delivery service and it has literally gave me back time for my family, mistakes like these happen. But lucky for you, this got me in the kitchen creating all the things I could for using up mushrooms!
How do you use steak sauce?

Traditionally, steak sauce is made from some sort of tomato base and can have added vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and spices.
When I set to create my version, I wanted a steak sauce without Worcestershire sauce, I wanted whole food ingredients and things that were easy to find. So I settled on:
- Tomato paste
- Balsamic vinegar
- Tamari/Soy Sauce
- Maple syrup
- Garlic powder
- Ground black pepper
- Optional hot sauce
Homemade steak sauce stores best in jars or bottles that are air tight. I personally love these!
