Friday 22 April 2011

Take your eyes off the steak. This is not about the steak. It's all about the sauce . . . truly.

If you want to know how to cook a really good steak, you can check out my recipe here. But . . . don't leave just yet . . . keep your eyes on this page, coz you're in for a real treat.

If you are looking for the perfect sauce to serve with your grilled meats this summer, look no further. This is spicy, and sweet and oh so delicious!

The ingredient list may seem a bit odd, but trust me . . . it's fabulous. Your guests will be wondering what your secret is . . . and they'll be most surprised when you tell them that it is raspberry jam. Yep!!

Raspberry jam! Who'd a thunk it! Dig in!! (Oh, and for the record, I do love my steaks a tad bit on the rare side!)
