Beef Wellingtion Recipe From Christner's Prime Steak & Lobster





Did you know January is National Meat Month?

Yes, it’s a real holiday, and since the average American consumes 270 lbs. of meat per year, compared to the worldwide average of 102.5 pounds per person consumed yearly, we should all be celebrating!

So to celebrate National Meat Month, I am going to share a special Christners's home recipe for Beef Wellington.
