Steak Diane Sauce

Looking down on a white plate with a steak covered with red steak Diane sauce and a side salad.

This is an easy version of the steak Diane sauce which is popular on rump steaks in outback pubs across Australia. It is not to be confused with the flambe steak Diane that can be found across America.

As it is a fairly simple recipe, it makes a great camping sauce to accompany your campfire-grilled steaks. The garlic and tomato flavors of the sauce complement the hearty beef of the steaks.

Some of the pub recipes are even more simplified than this including one which was canned tomato soup with extra garlic as their version of this sauce. So feel free to adapt this recipe as necessary, because the variations are endless.
