Châteaubriand - My Tips to this Delicious French Inspired Beef Tenderloin

It's the hottest cut in the butcher shop right now... Châteaubriand What is it?  The name itself is a French term referring to a cut of steak or method of roasting a beef tenderloin.  It's the beautiful center cut piece of a beef tenderloin, which is the most tender, flavorful cut of beef available. How do you cook it? Definitely use a meat thermometer! That's the difference in success! Sear or Brown the outside..... or not.....the hubs & I don't brown ours.... Otherwise, we cook ours at 375 degrees, until it's an internal temp we want and looks like something...

How bout our Hot Dogs! See why everyone is SO excited about them!

I had another local farmer and friend stop me recently.  He said.....'you should be advertising your hot dogs more! ... They're AMAZING!' I smiled and said, yeah.....they have their own following, for sure. He then started sharing with me why he and his family loves them so much.- They're delicious! Much more flavor than any other brand they've tried.  It only takes 1. They would eat 2 hot dogs with other brands. 1 fills him up with ours.  The price point is great. You don't have to cook as much. I, then, shared with him that they are top quality too!...

Chateaubriand....Have You Enjoyed it Before? High End Dining @ Home

I was working in the butcher shop last Saturday morning and new customers came in and asked about Chateaubriand.  It took me a second to recognize the name.  It was to be their Mother's Day meal and they wanted to use our highly acclaimed beef tenderloin.....the same cut that our sought after beef filets are cut, for their special occasion. After a quick review, I knew what was on my Mother's Day menu too!  It's so simple to cook. I thought y'all would enjoy an easy cook with high end results for your celebration. So here goes! What is it?...
