Steak sauce (in North America)—brown sauce (in the British Isles)—is a generic term for a dark brown sauce commonly served as a condiment for meat.

The two terms are similar but not identical. In the United States, as its name implies, steak sauce is predominantly associated with beef, while elsewhere brown sauce is often used on a variety of foods.

The most well known brands are A1 Steak Sauce in the United States, and HP Sauce in the United Kingdom. In the UK brown sauce is also popular on bacon sandwiches and pie and mash.


United States and Canada

These sauces are normally brown or orange in color and often made from tomatoes, spices, vinegar, and raisins and sometimes anchovies. The taste is either tart or sweet with a peppery taste similar to Worcestershire sauce. A1 is a tart variant, while some other brands, like the regionally notable Cackalacky Classic Condiment Spice Sauce, offer a sweeter and spicier flavor. Along with A1 and Lea & Perrins, several smaller companies and specialty producers manufacture steak sauce, and most major grocery store chains offer private-label brands. These sauces typically mimic the slightly sweet flavor of A-1 or Lea & Perrins.

Heinz 57 is a steak sauce produced by Heinz. Unlike other steak sauces, it has a distinctive dark orange-yellow color and tastes more like ketchup spiced with mustard seed (Heinz advertises the product as ``ketchup with a kick``, although it had a harsher, some say more robust taste, before the flavor changed in 1985[citation needed]). A few grocery store chains offer this type of sauce as a private label item, mimicking its yellowish color and labeled with similar names such as ``7 sauce`` or ``59 sauce``.

Use of steak sauce in the U.S. is generally limited to chopped steak or cuts of meat such as plate steak. On finer cuts such as sirloin and short loin, use of sauces is discouraged so as not to overwhelm the natural flavor of the meat itself.

In Canada, HP Sauce is also well known and popular.

United Kingdom and Ireland

Brown sauce is a condiment popular in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. There exist a number of different brands and generic versions, of which HP Sauce is the most popular - sales of HP Brown Sauce and HP Fruity Sauce account for around 75% of value sales in the UK (source IRI, June 2006). In some regions of the UK, Daddies is also a very popular sauce, especially in the Midlands and West Country (source, IRI, Mar 07). Both brands have existed since the start of the twentieth century: HP Sauce was launched in 1903, and Daddies, also known as Daddies Favourite, was launched in 1904. In Ireland Chef Brown Sauce is the most popular version[citation needed].

The recipe for HP Sauce includes a combination of malt vinegar, tomatoes, molasses, dates, tamarind and spices. Other brown sauce brands available in the UK use similar recipes.

Brown sauce is traditionally eaten with meals and dishes such as full breakfasts, bacon sandwiches or chips and baked beans. Around Edinburgh a combination of spirit vinegar and brown sauce, known simply as ``sauce`` or ``chippie sauce``, is popular on fish and chips.

In March 2008, HP announced the launch of HP Steak Sauce. This product featured a different recipe from the Original HP Brown Sauce, using a mix of spirit vinegar, tomatoes, black pepper, onion and cayenne pepper. The product includes serving suggestions including home-cooked steaks, home made burgers and premium sausages.
