Tony Legner’s Habanero Premium Steak Sauce: $8 a bottle
A new release at the 2008 Fiery Foods Show – this sauce was so hot off the press at show time that Tony had not yet even announced the line up. Hopefully those that attended managed to give it a whirl and grab yourself a bottle. Tony’s Cat-5 Food Polish
is still one of my favorite dusts for a bland dish and knowing that Tony’s restaurant is as successful as it is, I was more then willing to give his new sauce a try.
Looking at the sauce, it’s doesn’t look like any steak sauce I’ve ever seen before. The appearance is almost a translucent brown with flakes of ingredients running throughout.
Smell: It smells like a steak – not a steak sauce, but like the little sauce that drips off a steak after you cook it. To put it bluntly, the smell of this sauce is drool inducing.
Perfect for a t-bone
Steak was the only way I could foresee trying this sauce out on, given the name, at least to start. I cooked up a mean t-bone and went to town. The sauce does have a bit of a heat tickle to it which is surprising given that the smell does not alert ones senses to the presence of the habanero. Coating the steak nicely, the consistency of the sauce is a bit thinner then a typical steak sauce (like A1). The flavor though, is out of this world. With a sauce this tasty, you could make anything taste gourmet.
The sauce by itself is ever so slightly sweet, with the undertones of spice and a hint of mushroom. On the steak itself, it’s like the sauce draws out the already great flavors of the steak. the Ex & I went through almost half the bottle with this one steak and I tried it out the other night on burgers – fantastic! If you’ve got any sort of plans to grill this summer, do yourself a favor and get yourself a few bottles of Tony’s steak sauce – you won’t be disappointed.
