Famous Steak Sauce (Like A-1) Copycat / Clone

From "About.Com". Great for those who can't find American A-1 sauce. Did you know that Canadian A-1 is TOTALLY different from the American version even though the bottles look the same? I found this out while at a steak house in Toronto. The Canadian version is much sweeter and redder that the US version.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all ingredients into a small pan and bring to a low simmer.
  2. Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
  3. Strain into a bowl by pouring through a fine mesh strainer, pushing raisins with the back of a spoon to release all juices.
  4. Allow to cool completely before seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. It tastes different when its hot.
  5. Enjoy with your favorite steak!

Fantastic! Exactly as I have learned to know steak sauce, not the ketchupy kind.

This made way more than 1 cup. The 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup of Dijon mustard were way too over powering. Sorry but I did not enjoy this.

All I can say about this is THANK YOU! I can't eat commercially prepared A-1 Sauce and therefore haven't made by A-1 Bacon Onion Burgers. Now I can make them again! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.
