onion, celery and carrots. Let cook for approximately 10 minutes, stir frequently. Add
garlic, Budweiser, chicken broth, diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Bring back to a
low boil and then turn to a low simmer. Add basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Let
everything cook on low for about half hour. Stir frequently to avoid burning. Add to
Chicken Parmesan recipe, or serve over pasta.
Bow Tie Pasta: When using Budweiser Marinara Sauce, we cook our pasta only in
straight Budweiser beer. Bring the Budweiser to a boil, add the pasta, cook until
tender, drain the pasta; there is no need to rinse pasta. Discard the liquid and serve
pasta with the Budweiser Marinara Sauce.

CRACKED PEPPER STRIP STEAK WITH MICHELOB PAN SAUCE –
Serves 2
By Executive Chef Sam Niemann – St. Louis, Missouri
2- 8 oz. Strip Steaks                                                              Pan Sauce:
          (We Use Certified Angus Beef)                               2 tbsp. minced Shallots
2 tbsp. crushed Black Peppercorns                                         ½ c. Michelob Beer
1 tsp. Vegetable Oil                                                          ¼ c. Beef Stock
1 tbsp. Butter                                                                  1 tbsp. Butter
Sprinkle salt to taste on the top and bottom of the steaks, and then press each side into the
cracked peppercorns, encrusting the steaks lightly or heavily, to your liking. Heat the oil and the
butter in a heavy sauté or frying pan over high heat. When the pan is quite hot, lay in the peppered
steaks. Fry for about 2 minutes, until the undersides are well seared. Turn the meat
and cook the second side for about a minute. Press with a finger to test for the slight springiness
that indicates rare. Cook to desired doneness and remove to a warm platter.
Making the pan sauce:
Add the shallots to the pan and sauté briefly, stirring with a spoon to scrape up the drippings.
Lean away from the stove (averting your face) and pour the Michelob into the pan; tilt the edge of
the pan slightly, over the burner flame, to ignite the alcohol. Cook for a few moments more and
then add the stock. Bring the liquid back to the boil, and cook about 1 minute to thicken the
sauce, stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust seasoning. Finally, add the soft butter, swirling the
pan until it melts and incorporates the juices. When blended, pour the sauce over the steaks.

dishes in 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come
halfway up sides of dishes.
Bake approximately 35-40 minutes until the custard is set. Do not over bake or your
custard will be rubbery. Remove the pan from the oven and remove custard cups from
the water. Allow custards to cool before placing in the refrigerator. Chill overnight.
Two hours before serving: Preheat broiler. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar on top of each
custard. Place dishes on small baking sheet. Broil until sugar just starts to

In 10-12 inch paella pan or a similar ovenproof sauté pan, placed on the cooking grate directly over high
heat, brown the pork tenderloin and chorizo sausage on all sides, 6-8 minutes. Remove the pork
tenderloin and sausage, add the chicken, and brown all sides, 5-6 minutes. Remove the chicken and add
the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic browns, about 2 minutes. Add the rice and stir
until the grains are coated with fat. Return the pork, chorizo, and chicken to the pan. Add 4 cups of the
chicken stock, tomato, roasted pepper, saffron, paprika, thyme and bay leaf. Season with salt and
pepper to taste. Stir well.
Bring to a boil, then move the pan over indirect low heat. Simmer, without stirring, until most of the
liquid has been absorbed and the rice is almost tender, 20-25 minutes. (If all the liquid is absorbed
before the rice is tender, add another ½ to 1 cup chicken stock or water and cook for an additional 5-10
minutes until absorbed.) Remove the bay leaf. Add the shrimp, clams and lobster. Continue to cook
indirectly over low heat until the shrimp are opaque and the clams are open 5-7 minutes. Discard any
clams that do not open. Carefully remove the pan from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
