This is a menu from one of the 3 times I cooked for President Bush. Being back in the kitchen getting hold of menus can prove to be a bit of a challenge. This one is from The Vista Hotel. #41stpresident #usa #chefkevinashton #vistahotel #menu
#MondayMeatup – Flank Steak While very lean, the flank steak is extremely flavorful. It is usually marinated and cut against the grain. Flank steak is perfect for fajitas, tacos, and the like. Here it is shown with a chimichurri sauce… yum!
Did you know that cattle have 4 separate chambers in their stomachs? The rumen, the reticulum, the omasum and the abomasum. This is what classifies cows are ruminants!
Cut from under the ribs, the filet is the most tender and most expensive cut of steak. It is served rarer than other cuts and often comes with a cream sauce or wine reduction. The filet mignon is very well liked making it a popular choice.
