Henry Bain's Burger

This is an unusual steak sauce from Louisville's elite Pendennis Club. Henry Bain was the head waiter for years at the club beginning back in 1880, and he invented the recipe. I have used it for steaks, venison, and duck. Here I spooned it over a burger and served it with the Zuni Zuchinni pickles from my previous post.
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup A-1 Steak sauce
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups chutney-peach was probably the original, but any flavor will work-I used Major Grey
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes over low heat. This keeps for several weeks in the refrigerator.
