Rhubarb Steak Sauce Recipe

When the aroma of this sauce cooking wafts through the house, my family can't wait to grill steaks! I freeze this sauce in plastic containers, and keep some refrigerated in salad dressing bottles, ready for use. I not only use it on meat, but I'll also add a dash or two to some soup recipes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 1 hour + chilling YIELD:56 servings


  • 8 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 4 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 2-1/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool. Refrigerate in covered containers. Yield: about 7 cups.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
