Las Vegas Inspired Surf n Turf ♥

I am so pleased to tell you about  Vegas.com to post a inspired dish from there beautiful restaurants in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Hotels are all about luxury, and giving their guests the most over the top experience from the entertainment to the food.

I chose the 777 yes, that's the price! Out of all of the most expensive burgers  I have to admit this burger intrigues me the most. It’s a Kobe beef burger, topped with Maine lobster, prosciutto, caramelized onions, and a 100 year old drizzle of balsamic vinegar. In essence, it’s just another surf and turf burger – something I’ve been planning on making myself. But the big separating point from this burger and my future burger will be the mandatory $600 – $700 bottle of Dom Perignon that Le Burger Brasserie serves with their burger.
Here is my inspired burger you can make at home a perfect summer surf n turf dinner, only my version is healthier and just a tad bit less expensive! 

Kobe beef is expensive, why you ask? Kobe beef is rare, and producing it is an expensive, time consuming process. There are three main factors that make Kobe beef so tender and succulent. The Wagyu breed of cattle, the regular massaging of the cow to blend the fat into the muscle, and the diet of beer given to the cow to stimulate appetite.

I am doing a twist on the Bellagio Kobe Beef and Maine lobster burger that's more affordable .. Surf n Turf ! ♥

                                ( That's the 777 Kobe Beef Burger topped with Maine Lobster!)

Inexpensive steaks for the grill. What I'm talking about is the butcher's cuts.

The pieces of the steer that you won't find in the fancy-pants steakhouses or the styrofoam trays in the refrigerated cases in the supermarket (well, at least not most supermarkets). The pieces that chefs love to use because not only are they more inexpensive, but they've got character. the best cuts are
Top Sirloin
Top Round
Eye of Round
Beef Tenderloin

The cheapest are probably the round cuts.They are also the leanest cuts and healthier.

Grilled Lobster

Ingredients ♥

1 6″ x12″ cedar plank
5 6-8oz raw lobster tails
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Fresh chives roughly chopped
Salt and pepper

How to cook the Grilled Lobster Tails Recipe:
Soak cedar grilling plank in water for at least one hour.
Preheat grill to 400Fº.

Turn the lobster tails leg side up and carefully cut down the center cutting only the shell. Season with salt and pepper.

After 10-12 minutes the plank will be smoking and the lobster meat will be firm in a bright red shell. Remove from grill.

The tail meat can be pulled out of the shell after a few minutes to cool.
