Ben and I love to cook. We don't get to do it as much as we would like, but we love it!!!
Ben is always experimenting with new foods and creative ways to make them. He was sooooo excited when I showed him the Tavern Direct Sauces I got to review!!
We started our fun with the 1870 Steak Sauce.
We figured that sense we were using a prestigious marinade, that we would use a good cut of meat. We bought Fillet Mignon
We cooked the steak on the stove for a little while to brown it, and then I oven baked it with the sauce. Oh my was that really good!!!
A couple days later we tried the Golden Ginger Teriyaki!!
We made Chicken Shish Ka Bobs. Another absolutely delicious dish. Grilling the chicken and veggies with the teriyaki was yummy!! It had just the right amount of sweet and sour to it.
Last but not least we made baked Halibut with the Cabernet & Grilled Garlic Sauce.
Ben is not a big fish eater, but he loves it with this sauce. For me, I thought the sauce was a little too strong. I liked it, but not as much as the others. I am not a big vinegar person, and with this sauce to me it was too strong.
All in all, we really like the Tavern Direct Sauces, and we will be getting more.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
