Before we delve into our newest flavor-filled Steak University article topic, first, a disclaimer. If you’re a steak purist, the type that believes that meat should be naked, un-sauced, cheesed or otherwise boosted with a heaping accompaniment of flavor packing goodness, look away now. Today’s addition to our educational masterclass in all things steak is all about the sauce.
Easy steak sauce recipes with basic seasonings will abound. Steak sauce recipes that can double as side dishes with the addition of everything from mushrooms to red wine, will definitely be on our list. And don’t forget the classic pepper sauce recipes for your steak, a favorite pairing that we’re sure will also have your mouth watering. So to the brave of experimentation and the lovers of bold flavors, read on; this is the kind of saucy article you’ve been waiting for!
Why You Should Sauce
Now that we’ve ditched those aforementioned steak purists, let’s get real. Yes, a good, quality, juicy gourmet steak (like those sold by Chicago Steak Company hint hint) needs little more than salt, pepper and the proper application of heat to create a memorable and tasty dining experience. But why limit yourself to vanilla when there’s chocolate, strawberry and Neapolitan out there? A quality, gourmet steak on its own is an amazing culinary treat. A steak dressed with a balanced steak sauce recipe containing just the right amount of complimentary flavors is the like the cherry on top of an otherwise delectable sundae.
