Raise the Steaks
Peter Luger’s steak sauce is famous for a reason—it’s the best. And it’s as delicious on a hamburger, chicken or vine-ripe tomatoes as it is over aged porterhouse. The signature condiment of the Brooklyn-based restaurant that created it falls somewhere between cocktail sauce and a traditional steak sauce, thanks to ingredients like horseradish, tomatoes, garlic and onion.
And if Pops is a real steak lover, you can also order some of the best-cut meat out there, which will be delivered in a reusable cooler with two complimentary bottles of the super sauce.
