Print Recipe


  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ cup onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp Bourbon
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice fresh
  • 2 sprigs rosemary fresh


  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste, Dijon, Worcestershire sauce, Bourbon, vinegar, and soy sauce. Stir until completely combined.
  • Add the fresh rosemary and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl. Press the back of a wooden spoon or spatula onto the mixture to help the liquid completely pass through, leaving behind the solids.
  • Serve at once, or transfer to an air-tight container with lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.



This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, or quadrupled to serve more people.  The quantities for this recipe will serve 4 to 6 people for one meal.
The alcohol in the Bourbon will cook out by about 99%.  If you prefer no alcohol at all, simply omit the Bourbon in the recipe. 
The steak sauce keeps in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and freezes for up to 2 months.
