    This is my recipe for how to "Julia up" a steak.

    My take on making a good steak, based on what I've learned from Julia Child.

    Get probably 3-4 tbsp of butter. Red wine also, about 1/4 cup. Julia always recommended burgundy if you can find it. Keep a plate or bowl on the side.

    Add the butter & wine to a frying pan. Slice up some onions and, if you want, a few mushrooms. Do not crowd the pan. Saute' these in the butter & red wine on low heat for about 5 minutes.

    Take out the veggies so they don't get overdone & put them on your plate on the side. Add your steak. Season with herbs like a pinch or two each of basil, tarragon, oregano, parsley, a crumbled bay leaf, sea salt, & pepper to taste.

    Saute' on both sides in the remaining sauce until steak is no longer red in the middle (unless you like it rare). Top with the mushrooms and onions. Serve with a salad and slice of French bread, and the same wine you used to saute' the steak in.

    Beef Roast with a parmesean cream sauce

    Ingredients:

    For roast:
    4-5 lb beef roast-I believe this was a beef sirloin roast
    2 tbsp freshly cracked black pepper
    2 tbsp sea salt
    2 tbsp dried rosemary
    2 tbsp dried thyme
    4-6 tbsp olive oil
    6 or so cloves of garlic
    beef broth

    For sauce:
    brown bits from bottom of the pan
    beef broth for de-glazing
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    1 cup freshly grated parmesean cheese
    1 tsp worcestershire sauce
    salt and pepper to taste


    Preheat oven to 500. Cut slits into various spots on the roast and insert garlic cloves. Mix other ingredients to form a paste and spread evenly on roast. Pour enough beef broth to cover bottom of the roasting pan before putting roast in pan. Place in a 500 degree oven for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, drop the heat down to 300 and cook for another 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the meat continue to cook as the oven cools. Pull meat from oven, loosely tent with foil and let sit for 15-20 more minutes. Slice as thickly as you like.

    For the sauce, in the roast pan on medium heat, add a few splashes of beef broth to de-glaze and scrape up any bits left on the bottom. Add hwc, cheese, worcestershire salt and pepper and reduce sauce to a low simmer. Simmer until desired consistency.

    Great recipes! This is the final day, so there's still a little time to post your favorite ways to enjoy beef.

    Also, I don't know how to create the poll. Would someone who does mind sending me a PM with instructions?

    Why not give it a couple more days, and I can post the poll for you.

    Come on folks! How about beef in a slow cooker? Or great burger ideas?

    I have a sandwich recipe I need to post, but no pic, so if I can find one that looks like my recipe, I'll post soon.

    Creamed Chipped Beef

    This is a dish I grew up on, it's not the ubiquitous military version of SOS, that's made with ground beef, not dried beef.

    2 small jars Armour Dried Beef, dice up slices. (find this stuff where you find the Spam and Vienna Sausages. It's really salty)
    4 tbsp butter
    4 tbsp flour
    2-4 cups milk
    2 cans sweet peas
    2 small cans mushrooms
    3 hard boiled eggs, diced
    pepper
    toast or noodles

    In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook to make a light roux. Add a small amount of milk and stir til it thickens up, then add more milk and stir til it thickens, repeat til it forms a stable white sauce. Add the dried beef and heat through. Add the peas, mushrooms, diced eggs and pepper. Heat through. Serve over toast or noodles.

    It has been a long, long time since I made this sandwich, but it was one of my faves. Whenever I would make London Broil, I'd serve it with creamy horseradish sauce, caesar salad and garlic bread. The next day I'd use all the leftovers for sandwiches.

    I'd take the leftover french (or italian bread) and toast it lightly and spread it with either garlic butter or the horseradish sauce. Then I'd top it with slices of leftover london broil. Then top that with some leftover salad

    Was so easy since I already had everything ready to go, and it was deeelish.

    Here are some pics from the internet - none of which are this sandwich, but they give you a sense of it. The meat in the first one looks most like what I made.
