    I bought this steak sauce the other day, and it's absolutely the worst sauce/condiment I've ever tasted.
    It's called "Andria's", and I think it might be a local midwest thing, or from a restaurant.

    But it immediately soaks through break, on contact, just eats it away like acid.
    (I was making a steak sandwich)

    It also both has a very bland taste, yet has a strong terrible awful taste.
    It's also both chunky and runny all at once.

    It's really the worst... I had to throw the bread out and start over, wiping off the steak with a paper towel.
    Perhaps it's just for marinating, but even then it would be bad news.

    Ranch dressing would go terribly with that steak sauce.

    Since Ranch dressing goes terribly with everything, I agree.

    http://www.andrias.com/sauce.html

    Andria's Brush-On Steak Sauce (A.B.O.S.S.) was created by Sam Andria when he opened the award winning restaurant in O'Fallon, IL. in 1978. The sauce soon set the steakhouse in a class by itself. Although its use on beef and pork dishes established its unique flavor, its versatility was quickly recognized.

    Since requests from diners asking for the sauce for their own home use steadily increased, we at the restaurant decided to bottle and market the sauce. The first weeks in the grocery stores brought a surprising demand on us to supply the sauce in a greater way than anticipated. We at Andria's feel it has been a rewarding pleasure to have so many people using and enjoying the sauce in so many original and exciting recipes.

    Brushed on before or during cooking or used as a marinade, Andria's Brush-On Steak Sauce gives a succulence to all cuts - from hamburger to lamb, pork, chicken and fish. In the microwave it serves as a browning agent. As an additive, it excels in stews, gravies, and soups
    .

    Perhaps try putting it on before you cook...

    I don't know how they do it out of the south; but if you get caught putting sauce on a steak after it's come off the grill, it's considered an insult to the one who cooked it.

    I can't recall ever needing sauce on a cooked steak either.

    I would think it would depend on the cut/quality. All I buy are rib eyes (with good marbling)... and all my chick does to them is put some salt on them... sear... then cook to medium rare... rest... eat... no sauce required.

    Steak sauce is an abomination. Marinade is acceptable, but by no means necessary. Steak is already delicious.

    I completely agree that steak sauce is an insult to the chef, but I gotta admit, I fucking love me some A1. I some times buy cheap steak cuts just so I can slather them with A1 and eat something I love for cheap as shit.

    I prefer Lee and Perrin's. A-1 was never good to me.

    I don't bother with cheap cuts... cuz if I am going to have a steak it's going to be good.

    Do buy London broil and cube steak for chicken fried steak though...

    I think it depends on the "Steakuation"(ugh, I really went there...) Steak and eggs with potatoes...Katsup or steak sauce was acceptable..but on top of the eggs and potatoes. Steak Sandwich, like sliced brisket, steak sauce or horse radish sauce. Never actually put it on a slab meat.

    I'll admit, I'm less of an A1 lover since I quit smoking as it comes across a little strong to me now, but I still love it in smaller doses.

    I'll preface this by saying I am not a gourmand. Someone was all proud they had a Kobe beef steak at steak house. Had a taste..wasn't impressed. I think he ordered it over cooked, he had it medium well, I think you are supposed to have it rare/medium rare.

    Yeah, I guess it's a marinade, but it tastes so much like shit that it would ruin it.

    I assumed it could double as steak sauce like A1.
    It's in the trash now
