The Three Best Steak Sauces to Use on Everything
There are steak sauces, and then there are gourmet finishing steak sauces
When it comes to enhancing the flavors of your favorite dishes, most people are familiar with the trusty steak sauce. However, the world of culinary delights is far more diverse and exciting than that! We have three different types of gourmet steak sauces that you can use on your steaks, red meats, pork, lamb and even chicken. If you're a beginner cook looking to elevate your meals, it's time to explore the realm of finishing sauces. There are the three best finishing sauces in particular that pair really well with steak and other red meats: Classic Demi-Glace, Classic Green Peppercorn, and Roasted Poblano & Garlic. Get ready to take your culinary creations to a whole new level!
Demi-glace, often regarded as the "king of sauces," is a rich and velvety sauce that has its roots in French cuisine. It's made by simmering a mixture of veal or beef stock and a brown roux, along with a mirepoix (a mix of onions, carrots, and celery). The result is a sauce that's incredibly flavorful and versatile. This beefy sauce is perfect because of its versatility.
How to Use Classic Demi-Glace:
Demi-glace pairs perfectly with red meats, such as steaks and lamb, as well as pork chops or pork tenderloin and can transform a simple piece of meat into a gourmet dish. We also love using it with mashed potatoes and other vegetables.
It can be used as a base for various sauces like Bordelaise, Chasseur, and Diane, which are commonly served with meat and poultry dishes.
Classic Green Peppercorn
The classic green peppercorn sauce is a mouthwatering blend of green peppercorns, shallots, white wine, cream, and a touch of brandy. This sauce is renowned for its peppery kick and creamy texture, making it a delightful addition to a variety of dishes. This is a culinary cream sauce, meaning you will find it at steakhouses everywhere. Here is the best part about our Classic Green Peppercorn Steak Sauce- it's less than a fraction of the cost and you can eat it at home.
How to Use Classic Green Peppercorn Sauce:
It's an excellent accompaniment for beef, chicken, and pork, adding a burst of flavor with its peppery notes.
This sauce also pairs beautifully with roasted or grilled vegetables, making it a great choice for anyone who is picky about their vegetables. We have heard from multiple people how adding our sauce got their child to eat their vegetables.
Roasted Poblano & Garlic
For those who crave a touch of smokiness and mild heat, roasted poblano & garlic sauce is a delightful option. This sauce combines the earthy flavors of roasted poblano peppers with the sweetness of roasted garlic, creating a harmonious balance. This roasted poblano creamy sauce is the best for steak, and we may be biased when we say especially skirt steak.
How to Use Roasted Poblano & Garlic Sauce:
It's a wonderful match for grilled or roasted chicken, fish, or even a big salad bowl.
Drizzle it over pasta or use it as a dip for crusty bread and roasted vegetables for a unique and flavorful experience.
Steak sauce may have its place on the table, but there's a wide world of finishing sauces waiting to be explored. Classic demi-glace, classic green peppercorn, and roasted poblano & garlic sauces offer a range of flavors and textures that can elevate your cooking to new heights. Whether you're cooking for a special occasion or just craving a gourmet touch on an ordinary day, these sauces are your secret weapons
