So glad we took advantage of Saturday's gorgeous weather, being as the next couple days were cold & snowy. (In fact, as I type, big wet snowflakes are really coming down in a hurry!) We tried our luck with Chico's Beef Wellington after working up an appetite that afternoon, galloping along Lake Elmo's dog beach. We've heard such good things about this meal (Its a whopping $55 on the menu.). But geesh, it really didn't tickle our fancy. We ate this while watching The Fighter, and the movie was way better than the beef. Similar to our lesson learned for keeping oysters raw (in Recipe #86), no need to mess with the goodness of regular steaks.
~Rating of Beef Wellington: 3 stars (out of 10)
