    Zurie's Note:

    Relax, it's not a gland! There are many stories about the origin of this South African sauce, too long to relate here. It's a BBQ-type sauce, eaten with steaks or roast beef! On Zaar there have been several puzzled questions and hearty laughs when this sauce is mentioned, so it's high time Zaar had at least one variation of Monkey Gland in its repertoire! In almost every steakhouse in South Africa you can request Monkey Gland sauce with your grilled steak ...

      Loved it!. I used homemade apple chutney which is a little spicy, and since I did not have port wine I used all red-We used it for dipping fried chicken tenders. I think the best part was when my DH asked what it was after he had tasted it and his next bite was "mid-air". I said "Monkey Gland Sauce" and he froze. After a good giggle I explained the name-I got a few odd looks but he really liked it as much as I did. A keeper for sure!

      Uh, I must admit I only chose this recipe for a Cookathon due to it's unusual name! What a lovely surprise!!! Followed the recipe exactly as written, except I very finely minced the ginger instead of grating it - as I really like the taste of ginger and wanted a bit of that texture. We don't eat much beef, and when I do I want to taste it - so I'm not very fond of sauces on steak. However, this sauce makes a believer out of me. So delicious, and so easy to make with ingredients we always have around the house. This does make a lot, so next time I will reduce to half a recipe for just the two of us and will still have plenty left over to enjoy for a few days! Thanks for posting, Zurie! I really enjoyed researching the origins of this sauce on the web and look forward to serving this to company to see the looks on their faces when they ask what it is!!!

      Living in the UK there is nowhere to find this amazing sauce, not even Spur Steak Ranch!<br/>So to find this recipe was a real hit at the dinner table.
