Perhaps you had turkey and/or ham on Thanksgiving and now you’d like to serve a classic beef dinner for Christmas. You could always opt for the classic Standing Rib Roast, but in this less-than-jolly economy, you may want to consider a Top Sirloin Roast with Port-Merlot Pan Sauce.
You’ll cut your costs by almost one-third, and once your guests bite into this tender and juicy cut of beef, not a complaint will be heard all through the house.
In fact our entire Christmas Dinner menu, with all the trimmings, was designed to help you trim costs without sacrificing taste or presentation.
An Olde English Touch
Accompanying your sirloin roast with Classic Yorkshire Pudding brings a touch of Charles Dickens’ England to your Christmas table. Served piping hot from the oven, Yorkshire pudding gives those at the table an unspoken permission to sop up the roast beef’s natural juices and the reduced wine pan sauce. It’s truly one of the joys of this meal.
Creamy, cheesy Scalloped Potatoes, made with Fontina cheese, sides superbly with the elegant sirloin roast. Their vibrant golden color adds richness to the dinner.
Another welcome dish playing an important supporting role in our holiday dinner is our Green Peas Duet. Serving a blend of sugar snap peas with sweet green peas gives your green vegetable side dish extra eye- and flavor appeal.
The simple addition of pomegranate seeds to our mixed green salad is that extra touch that makes this special occasion meal a little more special.
For dessert, we recommend our Fabulous Flourless Chocolate Cake topped with real whipped cream. Rich and extra chocolatey, this cake assures a happy ending to this holiday dinner.
