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

A-1 Steak Sauce
1/2 C. orange juice
1/2 C. raisins

Homemade Family Favorite Steak Sauce
For a great steak sauce, I mix equal amounts of Worcestershire sauce and ketchup with a dash of onion powder.
Great Recipes for Homemade Sauce
Go to topsecretrecipies.com. 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 Steak Sauce Alternative
If you have an Aldi Foods Grocery Store near you, try their steak sauce. You may be pleasantly surprised.
Great Homemade 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 This Homemade Steak Sauce
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.
Add one teaspoon of ground ginger to 2 cups of the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce mixture and simmer. 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.
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.
