If you like sweet and spicy sauces, then this is the recipe for you. The sweetness of the mango pairs perfectly with the spiciness of the garlic and chili flakes. Coconut milk also adds another layer of flavor that bring a sweetness, as well as a tropical aspect to the sauce. This Thai Mango Sauce is great in the summertime when you may want to “brighten up” your steak. Adding fruit to steak makes it seem a little lighter, mimicking the flavors of summer. While the chili flakes definitely add a nice kick to this recipe, you can skip them if you want something with a little less heat. The mango sauce will still be delicious even without the spice! Once you make this steak sauce, you will want to use it within a day or two as the mango will start to breakdown. Keep it in the fridge, wrapped well, until you are ready to scoop it onto your favorite steak!
- 1 Mango (ripe)
- 4 Tbsp Coconut Milk
- 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
- 1/2 Lime (juiced)
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 2 clove(s) Garlic
- 1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
- 1/8 tsp Salt
Peel, then roughly chop the mango. Place the pieces into a blender, and add the remaining ingredients. Puree the mix until the sauce is smooth.
Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings to your liking. Add more chili flakes to make it spicier, or more honey to make it a little more sweet. Extra lime juice is great to make the sauce more sour as well!
Store in the fridge until you are ready to use then serve chilled on top of a nice hot steak or heat it slightly in a small saucepan and serve it warm.
