Hi! I'd like to make mini meatloaves but am having trouble finding A1 Steak Sauce. Can you suggest an easy to find alternative please? Thanks x
A1 Steak Sauce is a brown sauce based on malt vinegar, dates, mango chutney and spices. It was originally invented by one of the chefs of King George 1V. It was exported to the US at the end of the 19th century and has remained very popular there ever since. The closest UK product would be HP Sauce which is also based on malt vinegar but has more tanginess as HP sauce has tamarind in it. However in the meatloaf HP sauce would be a good alternative.
If you live in the London area you can buy A1 sauce in Panzer's and Partridge's (ring first to check it in stock if you are making a special trip) or you can buy it on-line from:
