I think this steak sauce recipe tastes better than the commercial brands. My creative condiment features an unusual variety of ingredients, including tomato paste, raisins, grapefruit juice, honey, garlic and soy sauce. —Judy Neil, Royal Oak, Michigan

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth

Stir in broth, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, grapefruit juice, tomato paste and vinegars until blended. Stir in raisins, garlic powder, pepper, thyme and salt. Bring to a boil.
