Steak and Beer Cheese Nachos

A few weeks ago, my family went out to Saul Good's for dinner.  My brother was having a hard time choosing between a burger and nachos.  I made a deal that I would get the burger if he would get the nachos, and we could exchange half of our meal (my family does this all the time).  He got the nachos, and to say that he was like a mama bear with her bear cub was an understatement.  The nachos were out-of-this-world fantastic, and he barely shared.

So what do I do?  I go home and replicate it for the hubby.  He loved it too!

I have a habit of recreating meals from restaurants, like these Lima Beans in Garlic Butter Sauce and Cajun Garlic Bread

Do you recreate meals from restaurants?
