  • 4 (12-ounce) Certified Angus Beef ® strip steaks
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 shallots, diced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons tamarind paste (optional)
  • 1/2 cup seeded and roughly chopped Medjool dates
  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots, sauté 4 minutes, add tomato paste and sauté 2 more minutes.
  2. Stir in water, apple cider vinegar, sherry vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard and tamarind; bring to a boil and continue at medium heat for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low, add dates and simmer 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and puree until smooth with an immersion blender or tabletop blender. Note: if using a traditional tabletop blender, remove the filler cap from the lid and cover with a tea towel (this will allow some steam to escape without the lid popping off). Keep sauce warm.
  4. Season strip steaks with salt and pepper; grill to desired doneness (if you like your steak medium well like Evander, take it to 140-145°F internal temperature). Tent with foil and allow to rest 5 minutes; serve with sauce.
