We were excited to have a new ‘battle’ this week to highlight our different cooking styles and have some opportunities to jab at each other for your enjoyment! So here is this week’s challenge…
One Dish, Two Ways: Beef Tenderloin, Corn on the Cob and Green Vegetable…all on the grill!
This week’s rules: We had to cook beef tenderloin, corn on the cob and a green vegetable of choice with the entire meal on the grill. Other than that, anything goes!
Denise came up with Salt Crusted Beef Tenderloin, Grilled Corn on the Cob, Grilled Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce and Grilled Mushrooms in Butter. She figured that if Melissa can make up her own rules of grilling what was supposed to be a roasted chicken in last week’s challenge, then Denise can make a Hollandaise sauce on the stove for the asparagus and a side of delicious mushrooms!
Melissa decided that if Denise was going to play it so safe, she was going to have to step it up a notch. At least this time Denise didn’t whine about not having any time to cook. Oh, and cooking a chicken in dry heat at high temperature without direct contact with a heating element is called ROASTING, not grilling. But, Melissa digresses….back to the meal.
Melissa went with a Mexcian/Spanish themed meal ALL on the grill and with nothing instant!! She stuffed the filet mignon with fresh spinach and Manchego cheese, topped it with a roasted tomatillo and poblano salsa and served it with Mexcian street food style grilled corn. Notice, no where in the description did Melissa mention opening a jar of anything or worse, a package of dehydrated dry stuff. Just keep that in mind as you read the recipes.
We would love to know which one of these dishes you would ACTUALLY make at home…Denise’s or Melissa’s. Or maybe it’s a combination of the two!!!
All the recipes will be posted in the next few days and be sure to read through them for more fun and antics!
