The only thing better than serving a beautifully cooked steak is complementing it with a flavoursome sauce that deepens the experience! Sauces can add incredible character to a steak-based dish, and the options are endless.

Here is a selection of 10 ‘killer’ classic and on-trend sauce recipes that will elevate your steaks and delight your diners.

A rich, velvety jus is a perfect match for a tender, buttery cut like a fillet steak. Herbs such as thyme or condiments like wholegrain mustard can be added for a touch of something different every time. 

This delicious sauce can be made with any type of mushroom. Button or Swiss brown are true classics. For an Asian twist, use shiitake or shimeji mushrooms. 

Bold and flavourful, this peppercorn sauce uses canned pink or green peppercorns, giving it a slightly sweeter, refined flavour than the one made with dry black peppercorns.

The rich, sweet aroma of caramelised onions works perfectly with the char-grilled steak, giving diners all the feels of classic comfort food.

The ever-popular traditional Diane sauce pairs well with any steak, from sirloin to scotch. Add a touch of extra zestiness with Knorr Tomato Powder GF.

Liven up your menu with our take on Marco Pierre White’s famous sauce. It bursts with flavour, yet still allows a steak to be the star of the show.

Adding Knorr Jus GF to the herb butter creates an interesting flavour twist. With its very fine texture, the jus powder blends well into the butter and gives it a distinctly unique taste.

Bone marrow adds a rich, decadent smoothness and perfect balance to the red wine in this sauce. It provides a great match for slower-cooked cuts, such as those prepared using the sous vide method.

Sweet and sticky, this balsamic jus is so delicious yet fast to prepare using Knorr Jus GF and Knorr Italian Glaze with Balsamic. It will liven up any steak menu. Add a woody herb such as rosemary, thyme, or oregano for an extra level of depth.

A popular sauce that is well and truly back in vogue, it provides a perfect accompaniment to any steak. Using Knorr Hollandaise Sauce GF as a base makes for a quick and easy creamy sauce with a tangy, slightly sweet flavour.
