Now some people may cringe at the idea of adding a heavy sauce to a juicy ribeye. But, what about if that sauce had a nice - steak sauce flavor combined with barbecue sauce? You could use it as a marinade, a basting sauce, or a finishing sauce. The
Barbecue Sauced Steaks
1 can tomato sauce
1/4 cup vinegar, cider
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons mustard
1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon hotsauce
1 dash liquid smoke

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.
Version One: Marinate the steaks overnight if possible in some of the sauce, covered, and chilled in the fridge. Reserve the remaing sauce for later use when you are grilling. Ready your grill and grill the steaks as you normally would. Baste before removing from grill and serving with some of the remaining sauce.
Version Two: Cool and drench steaks in sauce before grilling over charcoal and hickory chips. When you turn brush steak again with sauce. Repeat constantly as grilling, serve up!
