Beef Curry

Beef Curry
This is similar to the first dinner I ever cooked. Being the last kid at home, (all my siblings, Linda included, had all gone off to college or gotten married). My mom, for about 2 years, had taken a moratorium from cooking and we ate out almost every night! One day after school when I was 16 I was watching MTV and flipping through some magazine of my mother’s, when I came across a recipe that caught my attention. Curry In A Hurry! I read it, walked into my mothers office and said, “I need 20 bucks”. “Why?”, she said. “I’m making dinner”. She handed me the money and I made dinner. It turned out good. I use filet now and not top round and I’ve added a few upgrades – but it’s still really good! Continue reading

Deconstructed Beef Wellington With Chanterelle Mushrooms: Revisited

Deconstructed Beef Wellington With Chanterelle Mushrooms

My Hubby and I love to eat Filet Mignon and Beef Wellington is just a fantastic way to enjoy it. I deconstruct it sometimes so I can make smaller portions of this rich, delicious dish. My Hubby calls it a perfect 10 and I have to say I agree. The Chanterelle mushrooms are in season and oh, so good. They really take this dish over the top!    Continue reading

Blackened Filet Mignon Burgers
Most of the time when I want a good filet mignon, I buy the whole loin and trim it up. When I do that I always make filet mignon burgers. We really love them because they are just so moist and juicy. Today I made them with a blackened seasoning for extra depth and flavor! The pairing with the Swiss cheese just took them over the top! I made them thin and doubled them up for extra seasoning surface!!! Continue reading

Fresh Ground Filet Mignon Burgers

Fresh Ground Filet Mignon Burgers 6

So I love filet mignon and it is about the only steak my honey will eat. I like to buy the whole tenderloin and trim it up myself. Next time I make a whole loin, I will demonstrate how to clean the loin. Today however, I used a portion of the trimmings and ground them into excellent, juicy and tender filet mignon burgers. I used a local Handcrafted Artisan Bread from Carter’s. The Parmesan loaf is my favorite for this dish. Hope you get the chance to enjoy these delicious burgers. I paired this burger with a Cabernet Sauvignon from J.R. Dill Winery on the south/east side of Seneca Lake… Continue reading
