Mexican Steak Sauce

mexican steak sauce
If you've ever ordered steak or pork chops at a Mexican restaurant, they are usually served with a sauce, never plain. It's something like salsa but has a flavor that you just can't pinpoint. Most likely it's a combination of salsa, cumin, chili powder, cocoa and cinnamon. Sweet and savory with a kick of salsa. So good, you can't stop eating it!
I made mine with pork chops because they were on sale at the supermarket...great price! You can put it on beef, pork or chicken.


  • 4 steaks or pork chops
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 cup salsa (hot, medium or mild, it's up to you)
  • 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tblsp. oil for cooking (vegetable or canola)

Mix cumin and chili powder together in a small bowl then rub on both sides of meat. Let that set while you combine, salsa, cocoa and cinnamon and mix well.

Heal oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chops or steaks and brown on both sides for about 3 minutes each side. If you're making steaks and want them done medium, remove them now. If you're making pork chops, let them stay in the pan.


If you want to make your own salsa, here's a simple and quick recipe.
