Spicy Red Pepper Steak Sauce
The perfect homemade version of a must-have steak topping.
Why This Recipe Works
The steak is cooked perfectly, with a sizzling crust and buttery interior; the only thing missing is the perfect sauce. We wanted to concoct our own steak sauce recipe that could stand up to our meaty steaks. Toasting almonds enhanced their flavor, maximizing their nutty taste. We had to be careful: they burn easily. Shaking the pan often helped us avoid burning the nuts. Cayenne pepper is by nature spicy, but we felt free to simply add more cayenne to taste when needed.
