This sauce was easy and delicious!!!! The only thing I did different was cooked it down rather than using the cornstarch to thicken. I did this before cookin the steaks on the grill, then when the steaks were done, I started to reheat the sauce. As it came to a boil, I threw in 1TB butter and wisked it into the sauce!!! The wife loved it and so did I. We will definitley be having this sauce with steaks again!!!

5 Stars for ease, appearance, consistency, subtle blending of flavors, and versatility. It would lend itself to being spiced up by herbs/spices of your choice. I needed a little more flavor to suit my taste, so I added 1 tsp. beef bouillon and 1-1/2 tsp more tomato paste. That did it! I think this would be delicious over pork, too!
