Red Onion-Garlic Steak Sauce

Posted online

The rich, deep, robust flavors of this sauce are perfect with steaks, roast beef sandwiches, burgers and all kinds of meaty sandwiches.

Why try? This is a great use for those extra tomatoes you may have from your summer garden or the farmers market.

Foodie Byte: This sauce is great for adding a blast of flavor to turkey and chicken burgers that can otherwise be a bit bland at times.
