Steak sauce is a generic term used in the United States for various premade meat sauces. Most commonly, it refers to sauces served with beef and of western origin. The term "steak sauce" is derived from these sauces often being served with steak in restaurants.

Steak sauces are normally brown or orange in color and often made from tomatoes, spices, vinegar, and raisins. Some contain anchovies. The taste is either tart or sweet with a peppery taste similar to Worcestershire sauce. Often, Worcestershire sauce is referred to as a steak sauce, but it is not thick like other varieties.

Many steak lovers refuse to use steak sauce as they claim it ruins the flavor of the meat. Often, adding steak sauce is seen as a way to mask the flavor of inferior steak.
