Kalmes Famous Steak Seasoning and Tenderizer has been used in our family restaurant and catering business for over 25 years and has been very instrumental in helping the Kalmes family build a very successful food business. Over the years customers would ask if they could buy the seasoning at the restaurant or when we were out catering a steak fry, so I finally decided to bottle the seasoning and now sell it at several locations in and around the Dubuque, Iowa area with great success! Customers tell me they use it on their roasts, steaks, pork chops, chicken breasts, potatoes, etc.

Thank you for trying it,

Jim Kalmes
