A copycat recipe from one of Midtown Manhattan's most famous steakhouses. This chili recipe is made with Guinness stout, two kinds of beans, ground sirloin and diced filet mignon, but you can get away with using a cheaper cut of steak too.view recipe

I agree with everyone else, it was better than the dish I got at the Spaghetti Factory; I am sure I used more Mizithra than called for. -JIMPETO

These are dead-on the same as Red Lobster. My 6 year old niece always wants to go to Red Lobster because she likes their biscuits. Since it is rather pricey I told her we would try this recipe at home. She was absolutely thrilled that they were just like the real thing. -UB

About These CopyCat RecipesThese copycat recipes are submitted by home cooks, chefs, and even directly from restaurants. In some cases they are original recipes, and in others they are an attempt at an acceptable clone of your restaurant favorites. Some national restaurants vary their menus and recipes based on region, so the recipe you see here may not be what you are used to. For example, the dish you get at a restaurant in Minnesota might have different seasonings or sauces than what that same restaurant chain would offer in Texas.
Sometimes it's difficult to exactly duplicate a restaurant recipe at home without all the amenities of a commercial kitchen, but these recipes do their best to copy the same flavors, textures, and visual appeal that the restaurants offer.
