I use it only as a dipping sauce with a steak.

A1 is my go to.

Never found a taste for Heinz 57.

Lea & Perrins makes a steak sauce similar to A1.

But if the steak is good just a bit of S&P is all it needs.


AB. A1 goes good with a baked tater too.

I don't use any sauce at all. I just do salt/pepper and sear it.

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.

I think steak sauce in general is too highly flavored and hides the juicy flavor of a good steak. I prefer steaks with just S&P.

I like Eric's idea of mixing with horseradish and using as a dipping sauce.

Where I have used A-1 sauce--

Mix in with or top meatloaf.

Brush on grilled sliced onions or burgers after turning.

Mix with catsup with French fries or home fries. Mix with BBQ sauce to change up the flavors.

Use some in sloppy joes.

Leftover steak salad with blue cheese dressing and drizzle a little on top.

I use a touch of Tamari on my steaks if I feel the need.

Steak sauce? Nope. Years and years ago I tried it, didn't like it. No thanks!

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.

My steaks go nekkid, except for some salt and a massive amount of cracked pepper.

I too grew up with A1 and Heinz 57. Haven't had either for an eon or two.

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

I just noticed I have a bottle of A-1 in the cabinet. No clue how old it is or what I bought it for so I trashed it.
