The Osso Steakhouse Skillet-roasted chorizo cheese bread is a house-baked indulgent specialty everyone loves and nobody can resist. Warm, soft house-made sourdough kettle bread is served in a pool of cheesy, chorizo goodness topped with rosemary and garlic in the same cast-iron skillet it was cooked in. Knife and fork recommended. Additional cheese is sprinkled over the top for extra crunch. The dish is truly a favorite among patrons and a signature appetizer at both restaurants. For less than $6 this is a must-order to start-off your meal.

Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
