Taste Test

Taste test: steak sauce

We all know those people who reach for steak sauce before they take the first bite of their meat. The steak might taste great on its own, but they will never know because they can't resist smothering it with bottled flavors. Some of our panelists said they have been guilty of the sauce-before-taste response. So they set out to sample a variety of steak sauces on the market. We tried nine brands straight from the bottle, and our favorite turned out to be an inexpensive option found at a local Walmart Supercenter.
