Having started with one small steakhouse, Golden Corral Corporation has grown into one of the nation's strongest family restaurant chains. The ability to adapt to changing tastes allowed Golden Corral to continue growing during the 1980s and 1990s as changes in eating habits and increased competition brought drastic change to the family steakhouse business. Success continued in the 2000s as well--by 2003 the company operated and franchised 467 restaurants throughout the United States, serving 167.5 million guests that year.


Yams and Apples

Golden Corral Copycat Recipe

4 yams, about 8 cups cooked (after peeling)
1 apple, peeled, cored and chunked
6 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash salt
additional brown sugar for topping

Place the yams, sliced in half, skin on, in a large pot of water. Bring to boil and cook for about 20-30 minutes, or until soft and skins are beginning to peel away from yam. Remove from water and let cool. Peel and cut into large chunks.

Set in greased 9x13 or large casserole dish. Peel and cut an apple into small chunks. Place apple chunks on microwave safe plate and cook for 3 minutes on high. Add to yams in casserole. In microwave or small saucepan, melt butter, add lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Pour over yams and apples in dish. Crumble about 1/4 to 1/2 cup additional brown sugar over top of yams. Cover and refrigerate if using later. Bake covered with foil at 350 for 30- 45 minutes, until yams are heated through and sugars are bubbling.
