    Sometimes I will mix some in when I make burgers. Haven't tried it with chile yet, but it might add some flavor.

    I ran across these clone A-1 recipes while looking for something else. Might be something here you could tweak to your needs.

    Homemade Steak Sauce

    We love A1 sauce, but it is so expensive. Does anyone have a recipe for steak sauce? Jacqueline

    An Excellent Clone

    Here's a recipe from "Classy Clones" section. I've not tried it, but other recipes posted there were excellent clones! The site has a lot of good recipes, crafting, and household hints.

    A-1 Steak Sauce

    1/2 C. orange juice
    1/2 C. raisins
    1/4 C. soy sauce
    1/4 C. white vinegar
    2 T. Dijon mustard
    1 T. grated orange peel
    2 T. catsup
    2 T. chili sauce

    Bring all the ingredients to a boil, and then boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Allow the mixture to cool to lukewarm. Pour the mixture into a blender until it is smooth. Pour it into a bottle and cap tightly. Refrigerate and use within 90 days.

    The Family Favorite

    For a great steak sauce, I mix equal amounts of Worcestershire sauce and ketchup with a dash of onion powder.

    Great Recipes at this Site

    Go to At this site, you will find lots of recipes of famous brands like Heinz ketchup and Kentucky fried chicken. I didn't see a recipe for A1 sauce. However, I did find the sauce recipes from the Lonestar steakhouse and the Outback steakhouse.

    Inexpensive Alternative

    If you have an Aldi Foods Grocery Store near you, try their steak sauce. You may be pleasantly surprised.

    Save Big at Save-a-Lot

    Forget the A1 and try something different. If you have a Save-a-Lot near you, their knockoff of A1 tastes great, and for about $1 for a large bottle, it is a great deal. We even add it to marinades without worrying about how much we are using.

    Try This Great Alternative

    Here is a totally inexpensive alternative. I use it in the crockpot over a roast. It tastes very much like A1 steak sauce.

    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/3 cup lemon juice (bottled)
    Salt and Pepper

    Put the ingredients in small pan and simmer. Bottle and keep refrigerated. You can double or triple this recipe.

    You'll Love It!

    My husband loves this version of homemade A-1 sauce. I found this recipe in "Country Woman Magazine," dated July/August 1995.

    2 cups ketchup
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    2/3 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup each lemon juice, water, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
    2 tablespoons prepared mustard

    Combine all of the ingredients in a 3-quart saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Strain if desired. Cover and refrigerate. Yield: about 3 cups

    Elaine's Homemade Steak Sauce

    I make my own steak sauce recipe that is so easy. I have been told that it tastes similar to the A1 brand that costs so much in the grocery store.

    Put equal amounts of Worcestershire sauce and ketchup into a glass container and heat in the microwave to simmer. (I like to add some ground ginger before cooking). Add one teaspoon of ground ginger to 2 cups of the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce mixture before simmering. If one desires it to be a little sweet, you may add some brown sugar to taste. After this cools, I pour it into a squeeze bottle, or any container, and keep it in the cupboard. You can refrigerate it if you desire.

    I use it when we go to the waffle house for breakfast sometimes and its great on the hashbrowns, so is the heinz 57 sauce.

    A1 is good if you mess up a steak or when you have left overs. My son likes it on his...mashed potatoes. :blink:
  • TomM24TomM24 Posts: 1,364
    My wife likes it so she'll put some on my plate too. I usually dip about a third of my pieces in it.

    the only steak sauce ive used in years is peter lugers, and its for the tomato/cucumber salad. if you dont like it on the steak you could probably use it up in homemade salad dressings

    Have it in the fridge because my wife likes it but I rarely use it.

    Only on my well done, dry-aged porterhouses.
    I actually make many meals out of A-1 and Fritos when I was in school.

    Why ruin the taste of a good steak by putting sauces on it?
  • CecilCecil Posts: 771
    Read the post "well done" dry aged.
    Why ruin a good steak by burning it. This proves my point- sarcasm doesn't translate in print. :)

    A1 and mashed potatoes. YUM! Otherwise, not a big fan.
