Tomato Bisque With Crab Butter

Tomato Bisque With Crab Butter
Call me crazy, but my idea of a romantic evening involves sitting on the back porch with a huge amount of king crab legs spread out on newspaper, lots of butter, a bottle of wine and the sun setting! Well, that’s just what we did last night. You know the knuckle part at the crab that holds all the claws together? I save that part and clean it the next day to turn into another meal.

I remember my Mom-Mom used to make one – she cooked it for so long that the beef became tough but the gravy was so delicious…I’ve tweaked her original recipe just a bit over the years; adding more flavor, cooking the beef to tender perfection and still enjoying the delicious gravy!
