This sauce is GOOD.  All the steakhouses in Detroit serve Zip Sauce with steaks, and all of them claim to have created it.

I don't know who created it, all I know is I gotta have it with steak!  I literally can not eat a steak without it, so it has been my life's mission to recreate it to make at home (although now some kind soul has bottled it, so I can buy it in a pinch).

Usually in restaurants they pour the sauce over the steak, so it goes all over the plate and soaks into the's excellent on potatoes, btw.  I like to put mine in a small dish and dunk each piece of delicious beef.

This is a thin sauce, sort of like a revved-up buttery au jus. 


1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon instant beef bouillon granules
1 teaspoon garlic powder


1.  Place all ingredients into a small saucepan.  Heat over medium heat until bouillon is dissolved and butter is melted, stirring occasionally.

Serve warm with, steaks, chops, veggies, potatoes, mushrooms...anything!
