Amarula Cream Sauce is the perfect accompaniment for your juicy steak
If you are tired of the usual Mushroom sauce or Cheese sauce, give this Amarula Cream Sauce for Steak a try next time you are having a juicy Steak.
We are in our last week of Winter and our Spring starts next week, September 1st in South-Africa. Later on in September, the 24th, we celebrate our National Heritage Day, which may actually be better known as National Braai (Barbecue) Day.
South-Africans love to braai ! We do not have a braai season, it happens all year round, and not only over weekends, but during the week too.
To get my menu in order for the National Holiday, I am trying out new recipes to pair up with older, more traditional dishes and this Amarula Cream Sauce for Steaks was one of the first recipes to get a huge thumbs up from everyone and it will most definitely be on the menu.
The sauce is so creamy and bursts with taste, with a more than only a hint of Amarula ! Salty, sweet, fruity, it’s all in this sauce and compliments a juicy steak perfectly.
Even though I have not tried the sauce over Pork yet, I am sure it will be a winning combination too, because of the very unique fruity taste, which always works well with Pork anyway.
The tiny bits you see in the photos are actually from the KNORR Stock Pot I have used. Other than that, it is just one creamy, delicious (and rich!) sauce, which would most definitely spark a conversation or three at dinner time, or when you have guests over for a barbecue.
I also think this Amarula Cream Sauce is elegant enough to serve with a more formal dinner when you entertain. And to end off a great meal, remember to have a glass of Amarula afterwards !
