    We really enjoyed this sauce! It was different but in a good way! It was very easy to make and the steak came out very tender. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow! DH said "This is so good!" I made as posted. We really enjoyed the sauce which was sweet but not so much that it took away from the steak. This will be made again. It's very easy to prepare. Thanks for posting.

    I made this using chicken breasts and it is delicious! It's nice and tangy like a kicked up bbq sauce. Using chicken, I think orange marmalade would have been better, and a plum jelly would do good on steak also (I did not rate based on the choice of meat, but on the flavor of the sauce). Thanks for posting.

    An outstanding beyond divine recipe that begged Dennis to eat 2 helpings while he slurped up the extra sauce and stated, "This is the best sauce I have ever had!" There you go, Michelle! The absolute best sauce I have ever made. I followed this recipe exactly~ I knew right after I selected it that this was surely a winner. I made the full recipe too! Thankfully~I have a bit of sauce left over right now, but I know I have to make more. I followed this exactly and I wouldn't change anything about it. The jelly (my homemade grape jelly) was perfect the bacon, the garlic what a perfect recipe, savory and finger licking good! Thank you so much...a keeper for good!

    I have never had steak with this kind of sauce before and I must say we LOVED it! The sauce is tangy and gives the meat something extra. I am also a huge bacon fan and loved that there was bacon in this steak dish. Thanks, I will make this steak again! Made and reviewed for the AUS/NZ swap #14.
