Okay, if you don’t know you should. there is a book called “The Cornbread Mafia” that has gained a great deal of popularity over the years. It is a semi-true history within the official Home of Bourbon..Bardstown, Kentucky (since it is registered as THE BOURBON CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.) With that in mind, during National Bourbon Month, we offer up this great recipe to go along with a glass of fine Bourbon and a Bourbon marinated steak hot off the grill..Robyn will be supplying a June Thoroughbroad story soon, so watch for it, check out the above book and enjoy this side dish with a summer night on the deck! It will go with just about anything.
