2. Blackened Rockfish 
3. Blueberry Cream Pie
4. Breakfast Daniel
5. Butter Crunch Pop Corn

by Tiffany Taylor

Serves 8. If you prefer not to cook with alcohol, you can substitute cranberry juice for the burgundy. The flavor will be different, but the juice will add the same tartness and color as the wine.

2 tablespoons shortening
2 pounds beef sirloin tips
2 16-ounce cans beef consommé
1/2 cup burgundy wine
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon onion salt
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup water
4 cups hot cooked rice

Melt shortening in large skillet; cook and stir meat until browned. Stir in consommé, wine, soy sauce, garlic, and onion salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 1 hour, until meat is tender.

In a small bowl, blend cornstarch and water. Gradually stir into meat mixture. Cook and stir until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Serve over hot rice.

2. Blackened Rockfish

6 - 8 rockfish fillets
1/4  - 1/2 cup butter, melted
Blackening seasoning

Coat each fillet individually in a bowl of melted butter and then coat lightly with blackening seasoning.  Allow coated fillets to sit for about 15 - 20 minutes.

Fry in a heavy skillet on high heat. Expect lots of smoke and use your exhaust fan.  Depending on the thickness of the fillets, you should cook for several minutes per side.  We had this over the weekend because the local store had some beautiful rockfish.  Rockfish is the local term here in Southeastern Virginia for striped bass.  This is a very large fish and the fillets from this fish are very thick and meaty.  If you cannot find rockfish fillets in your locale, substitute another meaty fish such as mahi-mahi, tilapia, tuna or salmon.

Be careful because some blackening seasoning is hotter than others. If you get a seasoning that is too hot, try to limit the amount of seasoning you use to coat the fish and serve the fish with some homemade tarter sauce made from 2 Tbsp. of mayonnaise and 1 Tbsp. of dill relish.
