waxed poetic about the merits of this steak sauce:
"You cook this mixture for 15 minutes, you pour it on steak and then after that, you throw away every bottled condiment in your fridge because they had a good run. You appreciate their years of service. You hope they’ll find their new digs suitable and understand that it wasn’t them and it wasn’t you either. It was this punchy rust-colored jar of unparalleled steak awesomeness that put them out of business, and it’s really not sorry."
Recipe from smitten kitchen.
- 1 large red bell pepper
- 2/3 cup fresh chopped tomato
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 3/4 teaspoon table salt or more to taste
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1. Cut the pepper in half and put it in the broiler, skin side up, for 6-8 minutes until the skin starts getting black.
2. Put the pepper and the rest of the ingredients in the food processor.
3. Transfer to a small sauce pan and simmer for 15 minutes. I was watching TV so I'm sure I simmered it for longer. Really you're just trying to thicken it to your desired sauce consistency.
4. Return mixture to the food processor and process until smooth.
