I would love the recipe for the sauce that accompany the artichokes and smoked salmon. I was speaking to an empolyee and they said the secret to the sauce was a specific pickle relish. The purple cabbage was mentioned above and that is one I'd like too. Thanks for the veggie burger recipe.

Here is Houston's Chefs Dressing recipe:


1 quart mayonnaise

8 oz. anchovies, lightly drained

1.0 oz garlic, peeled & minced

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 cup chives (ends removed,minced med.)

3/4 cup parsley (chopped medium fine by hand)

1/4 cup fresh tarragon (chopped medium)

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Place first 4 ingredients in Cuisinart and process until small pieces of anchovy appear.

Remove processed ingredients and place into bowl. Stir in all remaining ingredients except lemon juice. Allow to sit in refrigerator for at least 8 hours.

Add lemon juice when you are ready to serve.

The herbs are the secret to this and they must be fresh.

longhorn 8 years ago

I can't say exactly what the black beans have in them, but I know they are made with chicken stock, and the cocoa part is actually the Houston's 5-Nut Brownie icing (contains espresso). There is no barbeque sauce in the black beans. Trust me.

Anita 7 years ago

I know most of the ingredients for the Chef's Dressing, but not the amount of each ingredient.

Mayo, garlic, taragon, parsley, cayane, anchovy paste, lemon, chives

It's also great if you add capers and diced red onion directly to the sauce.

Spicy Caesar Dressing

1 Egg Yolk 1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic 2 tsp. Dijon mustard 2 Anchovy fillets, minced 1 1/2 tsp. Coarsely ground black pepper 1/4 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. each: ground coriander & cumin 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 2 tsp. Cold water 1/2 C. each: extra-virgin olive oil & canola oil 1 1/2 Tbsp. Sambal chili paste (Thai Chili Paste) Juice of 1/2 each: lemon & lime 3 Tbsp. Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Combine yolk, garlic, mustard, anchovies, pepper, salt, coriander, cumin, Worcestershire & water in food processor; process until smooth. With motor running, pour oils in a slow, steady stream into egg mixture. When all oil has been incorporated, add chili paste, lemon & limejuices, and Parmesan; process until smooth.

If you want the regular cesar version, just leave out the chile paste, coriander, and cumin. I made it the other night that way and its was incredible!

KatherineNYC1 7 years ago

To people asking about the chef dressing above, I have made it several times, the recipe included here is excellent. For the best flavor it needs to be refrigerated for several hours. I made the artichokes but baked them and then finished under the broiler to brown-they were a huge success at my dinner party. Also I have figured out a very close approximation of the red cabbage:

Use: 1/2 red cabbage very thinly sliced

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

2 tbsp vegetable oil, 2 tbsp olive oil

1/3 cup dry red wine

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp or more good quality dijon mustard

lots of salt and pepper to taste

serve with dollops of fresh goat cheese

-heat the veg oil and add the minced garlic, cook slowly until lightly browned

-add all the cabbage at once, and mix well, lower the heat and continue mixing for a few mins

-add-olive oil, wine, balsamic vinegar, mustard and salt (start with 1 tsp)

-mix very well and taste, add salt and pepper to correct

cover with a lid and braise for about 20 mins over med-low heat, stirring occasionally

-remove lid and continue to cook over low until most of wine is evaporated

-it should be a beautiful dark purple and have a bit of a bite too it, similar to al dente pasta. Add parmesan and stir until all cheese is melted, this should thicken it beautifully. Correct seasoning and serve hot with a crumble of goat cheese on top.

Re the Grilled Artichokes

I've eaten in and am addicted to the artichokes at the Hillstone's (formerly Houstons on Preston in Dallas). I've tried duplicating their chokes using the steamed/boiled parcooked methods and they just don't work. We ate there last night, and I realized that their grilling method doesn't use any kind wet prep prior. They put those babies on the grill and let them grill and roast there until they're tender. I haven't tried it yet at home, as we can't truly duplicate the smoky quality of a wood-fired grill on our gas one, but any charcoal/wood grill would do the job.

The sauce is a mayo-based tartar sauce really (w/o the bits of onion). To call the dipping sauce remoulade is a misnomer IMO, though a standard remoulade would be great too.

Dear Houston's Employee, and

Dear Hillstone/ Houston's fellow fans,

Please, anyone else with a recipe, I'd be truly appreciative and grateful if you would share some with me too.
