When you’ve taken the time and effort to cook a great steak, you want to complete the experience with an exclamation point. Briargate Steak Sauce is what I reach for to give my taste buds a touch of WOW. While it is excellent for steaks it is also good for meats, stews and gravies.
This product is cleverly packaged in a convenient plastic bottle. The container is dark brown in color. There is a white top that covers the bottle’s mouth. It is further secured by a ban of tan plastic wrapping.
A white glued-on label covers the front and two sides of the bottle. The back portion is blank with no cover. The Briargate brand name is written on a semi-circle of blue with capital white letters in a frame of gold. The words steak sauce are written in a red color with an archaic font. The words for meat, stews and gravies are written in white letters over a blue and gold-ribboned circle. The net weight is 10 ounces or 284 g.

This steak sauce bottle fits comfortably in my hand. It is sleek with no bulkiness. The tan overwrap was easily removed exposing the white top. A best by date is stamped on the top.
The contents color is a rich dark-molasses brown. It is thick in texture, not watery. The smells of the ingredients mingling together come through with a harmonious effect. The smell is not obtrusive or offensive.
I enjoy the additional personality it gives my steaks that have been bombarded with stir-fried onions and mushrooms. I have also used this product on my pork chops that have been slow cooked in my crock pot. With the meat coming off the bone, I simply dip in a pool of the steak sauce for a lingering good taste.
If you’re trying to liven up your meat and vegetable dishes, Briargate Steak Sauce might offer the solution you need. It is economically priced at around $1.50 a bottle.
