Recipe: Henry Bain Sauce and Jezebel Sauce

This is a Louisville Kentucky tradition: "Henry Bain Sauce". It was named after its creator, who was the head waiter at the men-only Louisville's Pendennis Club. Bain made the sauce in 1881 as an accompaniment to wild game, and it's been a Louisville tradition ever since. A sweet, tangy, spicy concoction, this sauce is best served with beef tenderloin at your Derby party!

2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chutney
1/3 cup bottled chili sauce
1/4 cup steak sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

Combine well and chill until serving. Best with hot or cold roast beef. Spread on beef sandwiches, serve with pot roast, etc.
