Easy and healthy steak sauce recipes include balsamic steak sauce and pepper sauce. To make pepper sauce, use the steak drippings from a frying pan, add 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar and 1/2 cup of beef stock, and boil until the sauce is reduced. Add pepper.

Balsamic steak sauce is another easy and healthy steak sauce recipe that requires 3/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, 2/3 cup of ketchup, 1/4 cup of honey and 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Pour these ingredients into a saucepan, then add 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, 2 sliced shallots, 1/4 teaspoon of allspice, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together, and simmer for 15 minutes until the sauce is thickened. You can pour it directly on the meat, or strain the sauce and whisk in some butter.

Another healthy steak sauce is chimichurri sauce, a combination of cilantro, parsley, garlic, vinegar and olive oil. Dice 1 shallot and 1 Fresno chile, then place them in a bowl. Add 1/2 cup of red wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon of salt. After 10 minutes, add 1/2 cup of fresh minced cilantro, 1/4 cup of fresh minced parsley and 2 tablespoons of fresh minced oregano. Stir everything together and use as either a steak sauce or a meat marinade.
