Oh, man. Did I hit the mother lode or what?
Food writer Helen Thompson, foodie Janice Shay and photographer Robert Peacock have put together the quintessential red meat cookbook, "The Big Texas Steakhouse Cookbook."
The beautiful coffee table tome offers up everything you'd ever need to know about red meat ... why Texans are so fond of it ... how to cook it and where to find it if you want to get out of the kitchen.
There are recipes for the famous 72-Ounce Steak Challenge from the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo and the incredibly lucious Roasted Garlic Stuffed Beef Tenderloin with Western Plaid Hash and Syrah Demi-Glaze from Lone Dove Western Bistro in Fort Worth (which is one of the best cuts of meat I've ever tasted).
It also includes fabulous side dishes like Horseradish Mashed Potatoes from Cattleman's Steak House in Fort Worth to Jessica's Favorite Green Chilie Hominy from Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap.
And don't forget dessert. Oh, my. The Ranchman's Coconut Pie sounds like the one my grandmother used to make. And there's a Banana Pudding from Star Cafe, along with a Deep Dish Key Lime Pie that sound like heaven on a plate.
