How To Make A Sauce For Steak

Save Recipe


  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 3 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon crushed cloves
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 2 cinnamon sticks broke in half


  1. Combine 1/4 cup red wine, soy sauce, Sriracha sauce and crushed garlic in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine vodka, allspice, crushed cloves and the broken cinnamon sticks in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Put the sugar and 3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar in a cast iron pot or skillet and caramelize over medium heat.
  4. Add in the red wine mixture and stir well.
  5. Strain the vodka mixture to remove the spices.
  6. Add the strained vodka to the cast iron pot.
  7. Add the lemon juice and stir to combine.
  8. Bring this mixture to a boil and cook until the mixture thickens. This takes about 5 minutes.
  9. Bottle and refrigerate, use as a marinade or as a steak sauce for beef.


Note: Be sure to use whole spices. Ground spices add a grittiness to the steak sauce. If you are using the sauce as a marinade however and want a thicker sauce, ground spices are perfect for that.
