What’s Avocado Steak Sauce?

My avocado steak sauce is a creamy, low-carb, and healthy sauce that you can use on any cooked piece of meat.

Once your steak has been cooked to your desired level, this sauce can dramatically transform its taste with a fine balance between the flavor of the warm meat and the fresh tanginess of the sauce.

How To Make Avocado Steak Sauce

Making this avocado steak sauce is very straightforward as it’s ready in under 5 minutes.

Let me give you some tips on how to pick the best ingredients first.

Ingredients

  • Hass Avocado – Haas avocados tend to have more flesh than other varieties. Pick avocados that are ripe but with no black spots. If your avocados are too young, the sauce will be too bitter. On the other hand, if they are overripe, the sauce will have a strange taste. Remove the stem to see if the avocado flesh is bright green while soft to the touch to know they’re ripe.
  • Olive Oil – any olive oil will do, but I like to use extra-virgin olive oil for this sauce recipe.
  • Sour Cream – or Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, or even dairy-free yogurt. This ingredient is bringing a lot of creaminess to the recipe.
  • Fresh Cilantro – if you’re one of the 50% of the population that have the gene that makes cilantro taste soapy, opt for another fresh herb like Italian parsley.
  • Garlic – I like to use fresh minced and crushed garlic rather than garlic powder.
  • Lime Juice – Lime juice brings some acidity to the sauce which also helps keep the avocado green. Read my tips on how to squeeze a lime perfectly without a juicer.
  • Ground Black Pepper – or white pepper if you don’t have black pepper.

Steps

Prepare the avocado by extracting all its flesh. If it has any darker spots, discard them as they will bring a bad taste.

If the avocados have started to form string-like fibers, they’re too ripe.

Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor with the S blade attachment.

Process the avocado steak sauce on the high-speed setting until it’s smooth and very creamy. It should only take about 45 to 60 seconds.

Transfer the sauce to a serving bowl and top it with poppy seeds or sesame seeds.

Pairing

This Avocado Steak Sauce is as its name implies best served with some cooked steak on the grill. Here are my preferred pieces:

Frequently Asked Questions
