Yes, we love a good smoked tri tip, a grilled rib eye or a slow roasted brisket but, when it is winter we crave soups, stews, chilis and hearty fare to warm our insides as we brave the snowy winters of Colorado. Our Beef Curry takes our American or Full Blood Wagyu Top Sirloin with the warm and exotic spices of cinnamon, curry, and cumin to make a delicious and hearty meal. Add hot cooked rice and this is a delicious new comfort food for us at Cross Creek Ranch.
