In the beginning there was only Lord Brahma and Garbhodakasayi Vishnu. Lord Brahma first created sacrifice to Lord Vishnu out of the body of Lord Vishnu.

"When I was born from the abdominal lotus flower of the Lord
[ Maha-Vishnu], the great person, I had no other ingredients for sacrificial performances except the bodily limbs of the great Personality of Godhead." SB 2.6.23

That is why all sacrifices are meant to satisfy Lord Vishnu. He is the very source of sacrifice.

"Thus I created the ingredients and paraphernalia for offering sacrifice out of the parts and parcels of the body of the Supreme Lord, the enjoyer of the sacrifice, and I performed the sacrifice to satisfy the Lord." SB 2.6.28
