Zip Sauce Recipe for Steak

Zip Sauce Recipe for Steak – Inspired by the Rochester Chop House, Detroit and Andiamos. Zip Sauce recipe ingredients include – crushed dried rosemary, dry thyme leaf, garlic powder, minced parsley, butter, salt, coarse black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, ground cumin, cayenne pepper.

My husband always gets the Zip Sauce when he orders steak at The Rochester Chop House. I know the original recipe was born on Woodward and traveled to The Chop House (and beyond) but I wanted to come up with my own Zip Sauce recipe for steaks for when I grill them at home. I think this is a decent clone recipe and pretty easy to make. If I could stew red tomatoes like The Rochester Chop House, I’d be all set :)
