When it comes down to it I am really a red meat person, I’ll eat the other stuff but if given the choice I will always reach for the red meat. With spring coming and Eastover here I decide that along with the Salmon there would be meat. So I grabbed a couple of NY Strips at Wholefoods and a bottle of A1 sauce for Lyn and grilled up those babies.
Salt and pepper to taste
Pat dry the steaks with paper towels.
liberally Salt and pepper the steaks, place in freezer for 15-20 minutes.
In the meantime prepare the grill
Cook the steaks about 4 minutes per side don’t touch just turn when ready, maybe 5 minutes on second side.
Remove from grill let sit for 8-12 minutes, slice and serve.
A1 is marketed as a steak sauce in the USA as a condiment for use with meat or game dishes. It was developed, produced and marketed in the United Kingdom as a brand in 1831 and was later introduced to the United States by G.F. Heublein and (&) Bros., and was officially registered as a trademark in North America in 1895. Widely available in the US, the sauce today is only available in selected Tesco stores in the UK its country of origin.
The original sauce upon which A.1. is based was created in 1824 by Henderson William Brand, a chef to King George IV of the United Kingdom. A popular myth has it that the king declared it “A.1.” and the name was born. It went into commercial production under the Brand & Co. label in 1831, marketed as a condiment for ‘fish, meat and fowl’, and continued production under this label after bankruptcy forced ownership of Brand & Co. to be transferred to W.H. Withall in 1850. It was renamed A.1. in 1873, after a trademark dispute between creator Henderson William Brand and Dence & Mason, who had since purchased Brand & Co. from Withall. It continued to be produced by Brand & co until the late 1950s at the firm’s factory in Vauxhall London. It was introduced to the United States in 1895 under the ownership of G.F. Heublein & Brothers and marketed as A.1 ‘steak’ sauce’. In 1931, A.1. was introduced to Canada.
