    Beef Wellington Recipe

    Beef Wellington is a classic British dish that is both elegant and delicious.  Instead of being a stale, heavy meal that is typical of old English cooking, Beef Wellington seems almost modern in its presentation and is, in fact, extremely popular today.  Filet Mignon is seared and coated with mushroom duxelles and prosciutto, wrapped in a freshly prepared herb crepe, and finally, wrapped in puff pastry and baked to golden perfection.  This tasting experience is truly magical and will definitely...MORE impress your dinner guests.

    America's Best BBQ
    BBQ Ribs. Andrews McMeel

     This delicious rib recipe is done in Kansas City barbecue style and comes from our friends at Oklahoma Joe's Barbecue and Catering (Kansas City, KS). Good ribs take a long time to cook at low heat to get that tender, pull off the bone experience but it's worth the wait.

     There are many, many versions of chili. I like the more traditional versions. This one uses ground beef as well as steak for a nice texture difference. It has a bit of kick. If you like it hotter, just add more chipotle or jalapenos.

    Coffee Rubbed Steaks

    Ground coffee adds a nice complex flavor to meats, especially beef. The stout bitterness of the coffee beans is an excellent choice to stand up to the heartiness of the beef.  This grilled coffee-rubbed steak has great bold flavor that pairs very well with roasted vegetables.
