Beef Sirloin Tri-Tip Roast Recipe Recipe

If you're having trouble cooking red meat to perfect doneness, this recipe is for you because I believe it's fool-proof. I used a bottom sirloin tri-tip roast and marinated it overnight. To ensure the meat is properly seasoned, I placed a spicy marinade (I used homemade chili garlic sauce from last summer, onion purée, maple syrup and cinnamon) in a bag and vacuum-sealed it. The following day, I seared the meat to create an outer crust and the juice remained inside for optimum tenderness. The meat roasted in the oven until the probe thermometer indicated the right internal temperature.

It was quite a large piece of meat; if wrapped properly, you can carve the meat and make the best roast beef sandwich the next day! For all you beef lovers out there, don't forget, La Cense Beef is offering a special deal to Pham Fatale readers. You can get $20 off 8 10-ounce ribeye steaks, plus 1 lb of free meatballs, all with free shipping! If that's too much meat for you, La Cense is also offering $10 off 4 10-ounce ribeye steaks.

Butter Steak Recipe (Alain Ducasse) Recipe

If you're a regular reader, you know that I often tend toward the exotic or indulgent in my recipes. But at heart, I'm a steak and mashed potatoes kind of girl. I had an organic, grass fed, La Cense Beef ribeye steak that was just begging to be cooked, and today was as good a day as any to treat myself to a juicy steak.

I used French chef Alain Ducasse's method of basting the meat with a generous amount of butter and cloves of fresh garlic. The beef is served in style with a sauce chasseur (mushroom wine sauce), as if I were eating at Alain Ducasse's restaurant. It's a pretty simple meal, and since the meat is of such high quality, why mess with the flavors too much?


What with diaper changing, baths for my baby daughter and a little work out in between I've been exhausted, so I thought this delicious steak was well-deserved. Don't you agree? Now if I could only get all the vegetarians in our household (namely my husband Lulu), to give it a try. They don't know what they're missing out on!

Ginger Citrus Rib-Eye Steak Soft Tacos (Steak Taco Recipe) Recipe

My husband Lulu is a huge 49ers fan. Being French, I've had to start from scratch and learn a lot about American football. I've actually started enjoying watching the games, though I wish they wouldn't hit each other so hard! We watched the incredible playoff game last weekend and Lulu was screaming for joy when Alex Smith connected with Vernon Davis for the winning touchdown. The 49ers face the New York Giants in the NFC Championship this weekend, and Lulu is looking forward to watching the Niners advance to the Super Bowl.

We're having some people over to watch the game, so I created a meal that would fit the party, but with my own personal touch. For the main course, I made small plates of rib-eye steak soft tacos. To start, I seared the steaks after applying a ginger citrus rub. Once the steaks have a good crust, I glazed the meat with a spicy peach chutney. The soft tacos itself is layered with peach chutney, pickled mushrooms, sliced beef steak, shrimp and sour cream. The flavors were amazing and making this dish gave me plenty of ideas for what to serve for the Super Bowl when Lulu has all his buddies (and wives) over. I'll share some of the dishes I come up with over the next couple of weeks.

I used La Cense Beef in this dish, and if you want to recreate it for your own Super Bowl party, La Cense is offering a special deal to Pham Fatale readers. You can get $20 off 8 10-ounce Ribeye Steaks, plus 1 lb of free meatballs, all with free shipping ($157.48)! If that's too much meat for you, La Cense is also offering $10 off 4 10-ounce Ribeye Steaks ($71.24). La Cense Beef is 100% grass fed, with no hormones or antibiotics. I've had the privilege of trying their Prime Rib Roast as well as the Ribeye, and the flavor is out of this world. It's truly nothing like the beef you get from your local supermarket. So if you're planning to do something special for the Super Bowl, or if you just want to have a really nice steak dinner, definitely take advantage of this deal.

Ground Beef Stuffing Recipe

01.06.12 by Jackie

If you're Vietnamese, you've probably heard your mom say "tội chết" ("dreadfully sinful" in Vietnamese) in regards to wasting food. The lesson was definitely hammered into me, and now that I'm an adult, I intend to follow in my mom's footsteps and teach the same values to my daughter.

I love Acme brand green onion slab bread. It's very flavorful, moist and delicious. I went a little over-board buying 4 loaves at Costco. I made panini sandwiches the day before and had one left-over on the kitchen counter. Today, my goal was to come up with a creative way to use it all. I made stuffing using the onion bread with ground beef, artichoke hearts, tomato paste and mozzarella cheese. I moistened the bread with beef stock I had stored in the freezer. It makes a wonderful one-dish meal once the little casserole dish is heated and broiled in the oven. And if the slightly stale bread didn't have green onion in it, I could have made pain perdu (french toast) as well!

Prime Rib Roast Recipe Recipe

Prime Rib Roast Recipe

12.01.11 by Jackie

It’s December! Hard to believe there's only one month left in 2011, huh? If you're planning on hosting a holiday dinner, a flavorful prime rib roast might be the centerpiece you’re looking for at your holiday feast. The preparation of the meat is relatively simple and requires no marinating time. The key to success is to measure the internal temperature (135-140 degrees F) to guarantee proper doneness. The cooking time varies and isn't necessarily an indicator of a perfectly cooked prime rib. 



I wanted to give my prime roast rib an Asian flair, so I seasoned it with kaffir lime leaves, miso paste, red chili powder and fresh ginger. I rubbed the meat with the mixture and roasted it until the thermometer indicated the right internal temperature. You could of course add your favorite flavors here, but I think because of the high quality of this cut of meat, you should stick to the old adage that less is more. It's a simple, yet very tasty recipe that ensures a succulent and extremely tender prime rib. I finished the dish by broiling the crust for added crispy, intense flavor. It's hard to mess this one up!



We’ve done several giveaways this year, and they’ve been a lot of fun. I wanted to do something special for December, and the Advent Calendars (Calendrier de l’Avent in French) of my childhood came to mind. Each day, I would tear open the corresponding day on the calendar box and claim a little present (usually a little toy or a chocolate). It was so exciting! I thought we could count down the days in the same manner and showcase some really high quality products. With that in mind, the 25 Days of Giveaway project was born.

We're kicking off the season with La Cense Beef and their Four-Bone Prime Rib Roast, which is exquisitely marbled and oh-so tender. La Cense Beef is grass fed and carries no hormones, no antibiotics, no pesticides and is dedicated to restoring the place of nutrient-dense foods in our diet. The beef is intensely flavored with an almost natural “herb-y” flavor. You should really give it a try, and if you enter the contest, you just might win one! Can't wait?
