2 ea 8oz pkg of cream cheese
½ cup Half and Half

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and remove cream cheese from fridge to soften.

2. Cook beef in a pan over a medium high heat for about 8 minutes, add the Vogue Rogue and season with the salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the wine has reduced and the pan is almost dry. Skim off fat and set the beef aside to cool.

4. Lastly, mix in the cooled beef and scrape mixture into a 2qt dish, cover and bake 35 mins.
