Ah, Jamaican beef patties, one of the best foods on the planet.
When I think of “ethnic” food, this is one of my favorite options.
However, there are many options for sauces to eat with it.
The following list will help you navigate through all of the differences between the sauces and choose your favorite!
What Sauce Goes with Jamaican Beef Patties?
The best sauce for a Jamaican beef patty is a tomato-based sauce. The consistency of the patty should be soft, so it will soak up the sauce. A thin, red tomato based sauce is the best option because it will complement the spiciness of the patty.

Red pepper sauce is a simple and delicious accompaniment to beef patties.
It’s also easy to prepare, but it can be made extra special by adding some ingredients that are sure to make your taste buds sing.
Here are some of my favorite ways to make red pepper sauce:
- Add fresh ginger root, scallions (green onions), tomatoes, and lime juice for an extra punch of flavor.
- Simmer the mixture for about 20 minutes until it reduces down into a thicker consistency before serving with your beef patties!
Mango sauce is a great way to add a tropical twist to your patty.
It’s also easy to make if you have some ripe mangoes on hand.
If you don’t, then pick up some at the store and prepare the sauce using one of these methods:
- In a blender, combine 1 cup diced fresh mangoes with 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice and purée until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into another bowl; discard solids in sieve.
- Press pureed chopped mango through a fine mesh sieve into another bowl; discard solids in strainer. Stir in 2 teaspoons honey or brown sugar until dissolved; season with salt and pepper.
Strawberry sauce is one of my favorite sauces to go with beef patties.
It’s sweet, tangy and delicious!
The only thing I would like to warn you about is that the strawberry sauce can stain your teeth or clothes if you’re not careful while eating it.
To avoid this, try not to bite into your food too quickly or rub your teeth together after eating the pattie.
I like how easy it is to make this sauce because all you need is some fresh strawberries washed well then mashed until smooth for about 3 minutes in a blender (set on high).
Then add 1 tablespoon of sugar and blend again until mixed well together.
If desired add more sugar depending on how sweet you want the taste of this particular dish!
Other ingredients that pair well with this type of meal include:
Sweet and sour sauce is a great choice for beef patties. It is easy to prepare, and can be made extra special with just a few ingredients.
When making this recipe, keep in mind that you want the sweet and sour flavor to complement the patty.
When it comes to other ingredients that pair well with sweet and sour sauce, pineapple chunks are an excellent choice!
This is one of my favorite sauces to make because it’s so easy. All you need is the following:
- A blender or food processor
- Cayenne pepper powder (or fresh cayenne peppers, if you want to use those)
If you don’t have a blender or food processor, this recipe will work just fine with freshly ground cayenne pepper.
Just add water and mix until all the ingredients come together in a paste-like consistency.
You can also opt for adding scallions or green onions instead of red ones—just cut them into small pieces before adding them to your blender/food processor along with the other ingredients!
This sauce is delicious and can be made pretty easily.
There are a few things to keep in mind when making this sauce:
- First, make sure to add enough water so that your tamarind pulp dissolves completely.
- Second, strain the sauce through a fine sieve or cheesecloth because some of the seeds may not want to dissolve with hot water and will be left behind if you don’t strain it properly.
- Thirdly, this would be an excellent time to season your meat patty with salt and pepper just before frying it up! And lastly, remember this sauce pairs well with many Jamaican dishes such as ackee & saltfish or jerk chicken!
This is a very versatile sauce that can be used as a dip or drizzled over chicken, fish or beef patties.
It’s also delicious as a salad dressing, on eggs and in sandwiches.
Add more chilli flakes if you like your food extra hot!
Chilli sauce adds colour to dishes so it’s ideal for adding more colour to soups and stews.
If you want to make this sauce extra special then leave out the sugar and add two tablespoons of honey instead.
Honey Soy Sauce is a great sauce to have on hand. It can be used in a number of ways, making it even more versatile!
Here are some tips for preparing this sauce:
- Add honey and soy sauce to a pan over medium-high heat. Stir until fully combined and warmed through, about 1 minute.
- For an extra special treat, add 1/2 cup roasted cashews or peanuts while stirring continuously until they’re heated through. The nuts will add a crunchy texture to the dish!
- Make sure not to let it boil too long or overheat—you don’t want it too thick! If you do end up with extra sauce left over after cooking your beef patty (which I highly doubt), simply store it in an airtight container until ready for use later on down the road—it’ll keep fresh for two months at room temperature without spoiling during that time period before needing refrigerated storage again afterwards!
This delicious, creamy coconut cream sauce is the perfect accompaniment to Jamaican beef patties.
Use it as a dip for your patty or as a topping for other savory dishes.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try pairing this sauce with other savories like meatballs or fried chicken!
To make this sauce extra special and creamy, add an egg yolk to each recipe before blending until smooth.
Remember that if you ever have any leftover sauces from your meal, they can easily be frozen in small batches so that they don’t go to waste!
White sauce is an excellent sauce to pair with Jamaican beef patties.
This is because it’s sweet, tangy, and creamy all at once—a perfect complement to the spiciness of the patty.
To make white sauce more special, you can add ingredients like powdered sugar or cinnamon.
You’ll also want to keep in mind that not all white sauces are created equal—some have more milk than cream; some use margarine instead of butter; others are made with cornstarch rather than flour.
You can also experiment with other ingredients that complement white sauce well:
- Gouda cheese
- Dill pickles
Bearnaise sauce is a French classic and an excellent choice for pairing with Jamaican beef patties.
It’s easy to make, but it does require some finesse and care in order to achieve the perfect flavor and texture.
Here are some tips for making bearnaise sauce that will take your Jamaican beef patty experience from good to great:
- For best results, start by softening your shallots in butter before adding any other ingredients. This will help create a smoother consistency when you add the egg yolks later on.
- Once you have added your egg yolks, wait until they start to thicken before adding vinegar or lemon juice—this helps prevent curdling of your emulsion (which means no lumpy sauces!).
- Don’t throw away leftover Bearnaise Sauce! Just store it covered in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week—if it lasts that long!
As you can see, there’s no shortage of delicious sauces that pair well with your Jamaican beef patties.
From mustard sauce to jerk sauce, you really can’t go wrong.
