  1. for Christmas dinner....

    I am wanting roast beef..WITH Bearnaise sauce. Now Bearnaise goes
    really good with a tenderloin..and probably other cuts as well...

    For just one person, what would you suggest? Other than a steak, that
    is.. Or should it be steak?

    I love the idea of a roast....and the leftover beef and the resulting
    roast beef hash....

    But tenderloin is SOOO expensive?

    Got ideas?

    You by your lonesome on Christmas? Can you get to St. Louis? We'll take
    you home to my mother's house with us. The food will be just okay. Mom says
    she makes it, but we all know it's catered. There will be a rib roast,
    horseradish sauce, and all the trimmings. You are welcome to join us.

    Roast beef is delicious, especially the recipe that you've shared. Oh,
    my, is that good! But it's also sort of an anytime meal.

    A nice slab (okay, I really like it!) of tenderloin would be more of a
    special treat in my eyes. It's once a year. I'd spring for the steak
    if it's within your budget.

    You KNOW you want the steak. It's that pesky practical side of you
    that's getting you all confused. LOL!

    It's beef. And you roast it. It's roast beef. What do you call
    roast beef down there in Californ-i-a?

    So why are you asking us what to do, silly? Get whatever you refer to
    as roast beef, and make some sauce to go on it. ; )

    > You guys up? Wanna chat?


    Yeah, that sounds good, for a little bit, anyway. I'm tired, but
    having trouble sleeping.

    I used to know a recipe for roasting one or two bones of a rib roast
    (prime rib) that involved roasting from a frozen state. Wonder if I
    could find it. That small size, roasted from frozen would allow the
    right doneness. You'd have roast beast for your bearnaise sauce and
    leftovers to do something with. I'm not seeing hash from a rib roast,
    though. But that's just me.

    That recipe is in the second I Hate to Cook Book. I have the book;
    I'd be glad to post the recipe if anyone wants it.

    I really think that Turkey is mandatory at Xmas. I believe this, because I
    like turkey and like you I live alone. And I mostly cook and dine alone.
    How else can you get turkey stuffing, for the traditional stuffing
    sandwiches or the comfort foods of my youth like; turkey al a king, turkey
    noodle soup and turkey pot pies? Sure I will have my family over for dinner
    (my 2 adult kids, 1 SIL and my 1 grandchild), I too fight for the leftovers
    (another Xmas tradition).


    PS if this post looks weird...I've gone over to linux for a while till my
    other system is fixed...

    Well....I'm making a rib roast...you bring the béarnaise, and we'll call it
    even!!

    And if ya can't make it to Sandy Eggo, I'd splurge for the cut you like the
    best. Even a smallish rib roast- you can always use the leftovers!

    I once made a rib roast for christmas and it ended up costing me about $65 for
    a 5 pound roast. It was super expensive but worth every penny. I made a great
    dinner for my family and had enough leftovers to gnaw on the next day.
