It’s time for a proper steak and bourbon pairing in the #HFWF virtual kitchen! Chef Lance Kosaka will have your home kitchen sizzling with the aromas of rib eye, pan roasted to perfection and topped with Mama’s Relish, a colorful medley of Ho Farms tomatoes, lemon and chili relish. Your rib eye meal kit is complete with a side of crispy Brussel sprouts and lemongrass jasmine rice. What’s a juicy steak without a smooth glass of bourbon? Pair your plate with two Maker’s Mark® slow-crafted bourbon cocktails, poured over craft cocktail ice from On The Rock, created by cocktail artist, Jen Ackrill: the bourbon-forward Maker’s Mark® Highball and the pre-mixed On the Mark cocktail with apricot liqueur and bitters. Juicy and tender, follow the step-by-step guide with chef Kosaka to achieve… the perfect steak.
