Steak Chesapeake

My wife and I had a wedding anniversary a few days ago.  As usual, she said she wanted to go out, although with COVID-19 the options are very limited.  She has a senior position with an equipment finance company.  She’s been working from home since March - the workdays have been long, and considering what’s happening in the economy she’s dealing with one problem after another.  Well, she finally emerged from her home office about 7:30 that evening - it was pretty obvious she wasn’t up for going out...

I was ready, though.  A few days earlier I had picked-up a whole prime tenderloin from Costco, and earlier that day I paid a small fortune for a pound of Maryland jumbo lump crab meat.  My plan was to duplicate a great anniversary dinner we had 20+ years earlier.  People around Baltimore might remember Peerce’s Plantation - for many years a fine destination restaurant a bit north of the city.  They served a dish I’ve never forgotten, Steak Chesapeake - grilled filet mignon topped with jumbo lump crab, then smothered in bearnaise sauce.  

We love mushrooms, so I added sautéed cremini shrooms to the bearnaise.  It all came together very well - added twice-baked potatoes and asparagus tips glazed with a balsamic vinegar reduction, finished with Parmigiano Reggiano.  Stag’s Leap Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon and a hot buttered ciabatta completed the meal.  Oh, yeah!
