Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races is bottling and selling its Signature Steak Sauce, Meyer Lemon Cocktail Sauce and Herbed Ketchup.

The 12-ounce sauces cost $6 and are available in the casino gift shop and at the hostess stand at Final Cut Steakhouse.

“Customers have been asking to purchase our signature Final Cut sauces for years, but because we make them fresh in-house, we had no way of selling them,” Executive Chef Brian Collins said in a news release. “Bottling the sauces enabled us to retain their great flavor while making them shelf-stable so guests can enjoy them at their leisure.”

The sauces originate from the casino’s steakhouse Final Cut.

The Signature Steak Sauce has a smooth, peppery taste that complements red meat. The Meyer Lemon Cocktail Sauce offers brightness from the naturally sweet meyer lemon. The citrus flavor combines with horseradish, tomato and other ingredients for a nice pairing with seafood. A complement to starches and sandwiches, the Herbed Ketchup offers a fresh tomato taste rounded out by the flavor profile of fragrant herbs.
