Cream Sauce

Filet Mignon

½ cup Big Bob Gibson Championship Red Sauce

½ cup your favorite soy based steak marinade (Dales, Moores, etc.)

Combine chopped onions, bell peppers, celery, Worcestershire sauce, spice mix, garlic and clam juice. Refrigerate overnight. Sauté vegetable mix for a more intense flavor.

Combine 3 cups toasted breadcrumbs, crabmeat, the vegetable mix, eggs, cream in a mixing bowl and stir. Remove ½ cup of the mixture to use in the sauce. Chill the remaining mixture for 2 hours.

To make the sauce, combine 2 cups of cream and the ½ cup of crab mixture in a pan. Place on the high heat of a grill (or stove top). Cook for 4 minutes stirring constantly. Add the green onion tops and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Set aside but keep warm.

Mold crab cake mixture into patties using ½ cup mixture for each. Lightly coat crab cakes with remaining 2 cups of breadcrumbs. Spray grill-top and lightly mist crab cakes with vegetable oil. Grill over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side until cakes are golden brown.

Combine Big Bob Gibson Championship Red Sauce and soy-based sauce. Marinate filets for 4 hours in mix. Place filets on a grill over high heat. Cook to desired doneness.

Serve crab cakes covered with a generous amount of cream sauce. Top with filets cooked to personal perfection.
