Smooth avocado flesh tastes cool and refreshing on a sizzling hot steak. The sauce melts to share its creamy texture with the juicy meat and become a wonderful addition to its smoky flavor. You can cook this Avocado Sauce recipe mashy or chunky, just as you like it – the taste will be equally impressive either way!

Sage is another debatable sauce ingredient, sweet, yet savory, very complex, but certainly likable. Try cooking this Garlic-Sage Butter Sauce recipe for a small crowd, say, at a family cookout, and if you find its taste complimenting on the flavor of your steak, then dare to take ingredients in larger batches and treat your friends to a big dinner party where you will introduce them to this steak topper superstar!
