Filet Mignon ‘Oscar’

SteakAndCrabCake

When you think of an Oscar presentation of steak, maybe your mind goes directly to lump crabmeat served with a classic Béarnaise sauce. Our version takes a seared grass-fed filet, tops it with our crab cakes, and uses generous amount of Béarnaise (a deliciously decadent blend of egg yolks, butter and white wine). To me, this is better than any preparation I have ever had a steak house, and now Dana craves steak more than I do!

From our kitchen to yours, Bennett
