Holiday Entertaining

Entertain guests and family with ease and elegance

With the holidays upon us, busy schedules and company to plan for, we reached out to Chef Bill Tackett, the owner of Bluestone Steakhouse and Seafood, for a menu that is both elegant and delicious but without a lot of fuss and time.


Caesar Salad

Beef or Chicken - choose one of the following:

  • Beef Tenderloin
  • Fillet Mignon
  • Ribeye
  • Sirloin
  • Chicken Breast

Bugogee Sauce for meat – recipe below


Steamed Rice with Butter

Cheesecake - plain or your preference of flavor

The recommended method for cooking the meat is to grill it but if not available, then pan sear. The Bugogee Sauce makes this dinner extraordinary. 

Bluestone Steak House and Seafood is located on the northwest corner of 101st and Sheridan in Tulsa, OK, and is dedicated to “scratch cooking” with all food, including sauces, prepared on-site from fresh ingredients. Wine lovers will appreciate Bluestone’s dedication to the best wine drinking experience. 



1 teaspoon Olive Oil

½ cup Brown Sugar

3 ounces Butter

½ cup Soy Sauce

½ teaspoon Fresh Ground Ginger

½ teaspoon Fresh Minced Garlic

½ teaspoon Chopped Shallots

Place all Sauce Ingredients in the pan used to cook the beef or chicken (if pan seared) and heat until shallots and ginger are cooked and sugar is dissolved. Wisk until you have a smooth consistency and serve. If the sauce is not thick enough add starch & water.

 “Quality is our constant focus and I would rather apologize for price than for quality. You can come in black tie or blue jeans, just come expecting a great dining experience. We’ll do our best to meet your expectations.”—Bill Tackett


The Cook's Nook, a gourmet kitchenware store located at 91st and Yale, offers plenty of options for setting a beautiful table. Owner Debra Kouri has pieces that are good for mixing and matching or you can choose one look that you love for the entire table. These beautiful seasonal pieces are available at The Cook's Nook but in case they are out of stock, there are plenty of other options.
