Wolff’s famous Beef Manhattan recipe

In Elwood, Indiana, where I grew up, my next door neighbors, early on, were Dutch & Kate Wolff.  Dutch owned a restaurant and bar, Wolff’s.  One of the most popular meals was the Beef Manhattan.  Quite often, someone in the social media groups will mention this meal, and many posts will follow.

This week, one of my school classmates, Chris Jones, posted his grandmother’s recipe for Wolff’s Beef Manhattan.
