As I mentioned in my Thanksgiving post, I’m trying to steer us away from the traditional holiday meals (turkey and ham) to something I know we all like better. Since Wende could only come down on the 23rd, we decided to have two Christmas meals with the same menu for each - grilled steak, baked potatoes, veggies, and rolls – our grill gets used year round thanks in part to a covered patio and living in the south but I have used it in the snow.
Wende lives near a real butcher shop so I asked her to pick up the steaks for the first meal and she got everyone’s favorite - one rib-eye, two strips, and two fillets. Then for Christmas Day, I cut up a whole beef tenderloin for our steaks. The potatoes were washed, dried oiled, and dunked in sea salt.
The steaks got a coating of Montreal Steak Seasoning on each side.
For sides, we had baby carrots with a butter, maple syrup, and sherry glaze and Brussels sprouts that were steamed then sauteed in lemon, butter, garlic sauce with pre-cooked bacon, and Bev's hot, homemade yeast rolls..
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
