It’s a wickedly delicious combination of sweet and savory with a kick.
Wondering what the kick is? Serrano pepper.
Yep. But don’t be intimidated; it’s not that overwhelming. It’s just enough. If you’re sensitive to heat just do half of a pepper instead of a whole.
If you’re a blue cheese fan, you’ll love this.
The sauce is easy – butter, onion, orange juice, serrano pepper, Worcestershire sauce, amongst other things. I reduced it down and thickened it a little and poured it over my steak. It’s a little smoky, a little sweet and a little spicy. Sauce perfection.
Oh, but, wait…
Then I topped it off with some velvety blue cheese. That’s what rounds this whole beautiful thing out.
It’s unexpected, but trust me on this. I know it sounds strange, but it really is off the charts good. I want to pour this sauce all over everything. And lick it.
