Clams Casino and Beef Tenderloin topped with a Mixed Mushroom Butter

If ever was there a grill built for two it is the standard sized Beefer. Sure, it cooks so fast that it can shoot out entree after entrée to feed a family of six in no time, but if there are only two of you, this unit is just about perfect. Consider this surf and turf dish that is sure to turn anyone into a true romantic. If you prep the Clams Casino filling the day before along with the mushroom butter, the prep time on this meal is so quick, microwave dinners will be jealous with how quickly you get everything plated. And if it were me, I would triple the Clams Casino ingredients and keep churning out yummy clams by the tray while devouring the succulent steaks.
