Stage Coach makes four different sauces. Their award winning Steak Sauce is the final Stage Coach Sauce to be reviewed on The "Q" Review. Like their other sauces, Stage Coach's Steak Sauce is all natural. Though Stage Coach started commercially bottling and selling their Steak Sauce in 1991, the recipe dates all the way back to 1839.
Stage Coach's Steak Sauce is unlike the steak sauces that I'm used to. Unlike the rich, bold flavors of a Country Bob's or A1, Stage Coach's sauce is light and sweet with a slight tangy finish. In my opinion, the flavor was a bit too slight to hold up to well seasoned steak. Though, I would never want a sauce to over power the flavor of a quality steak, I do feel like it needs to hold it's own. Otherwise, what's the point of using a sauce?
That's not to say I didn't like the sauce. On chicken, burgers and especially french fries, it was quite good. I view the sauce more as a ketchup alternative. In fact, I equate the flavor to a thinner, slightly sweeter and more tangy ketchup.
As a steak sauce, it's not quite my style. If I'm going to use a steak sauce at all, it needs to be rich and bold. However, Stage Coach's Steak Sauce makes a fine dip for fries or nuggets. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again. Check out the "Product Reviews" page to see how Stage Coach Sauces' Steak Sauce compares to other sauces.
