We had steak sauce in the house "in case". Not sure what "case" would have caused us to need them, though. Finally used them in place of the ketchup that is called for in meatloaf recipes. Now THAT was good. But on steak? Only if it's well-done...and it had danged better NOT be cooked more than a medium rare.

Growing up in Iowa we always had H57 or A1 with steaks and what we did. While driving the Alcan in 77 I tried H.P. Sauce and it became a favorite but found what they sell in the U.S. is not the same as the product in Canada. I'm not a steak snob and love most sauces with steak to include some I make myself.
I'm gonna be the odd man out here. I'm not a big steak eater - I usually make it for my wife or friends, and then eat it by default. However. I love Peter Luger steak sauce. The background sweetness with the hit of horseradish transforms a plain steak from meh to tasty.
A hamburger with Peter Luger sauce, Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms and onions is wonderful.
Peter Lugar sauce was meant for their tomato salad not the steak but people kept using it as steak sauce.
I love the stuff but it's a bit too much like shrimp cocktail sauce for steak, unless I mix it wit A1
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
