About Croix Valley Steak Sauce: The original Croix Valley Steak Sauce first caught the public's attention in 1996 on the tables of the Holter family's steakhouse in northern Wisconsin. Patrons returned again and again for the steaks, - and the sauce. The Holters got so many requests for their homemade steak sauce that they began bottling it and selling it at the restaurant. They even filled requests by other restaurants, and allow them to re-label the sauce with their own restaurants' names. As the popularity grew, restaurant chefs created new recipes using the sauce on chicken, pork, and even vegetables.
