Roast Beef Christmas Dinner


Perfect Pot Roast

Perfect Pot Roast

Linda Larsen
Whenever I think of roast beef at Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas automatically comes to mind. Of course, they had "roast beast", which could be interpreted as roast beef, I suppose. Still, this elegant and festive roast beef Christmas dinner menu is the perfect choice for this wonderful time of year.

I never try to roast a prime rib of beef. I think that cut is best left to professionals in restaurant kitchens. No, I choose to serve pot roast for Christmas dinner, and I'm not ashamed of it. This lowly dish can be cooked and flavored so perfectly it will be one of the best meals you've eaten all year.

So have a merry Christmas and wonderful holiday season with family and friends!

Roast Beef Christmas Dinner Menu

  • Antipasto Martini
    This beautiful appetizer recipe is served in stemmed goblets for the perfect presentation. You can use any vegetables or cheese you'd like, and your favorite salad dressing too.
  • Perfect Pot Roast
    'Nuff said.
  • Traditional Mashed Potatoes
    This recipe produces the creamiest and most flavorful potatoes you'll ever serve - or eat! It's perfect with the rich vegetable gravy from the roast.
  • Antique Broccoli
    This is my favorite way to eat broccoli. It's rich and creamy and perfect with the tender, melting roast.
  • Honey Rolls
    These rolls are made from batter, which means there's no kneading and they're easier to make than traditional yeast rolls. And they are delicious.
  • Pear and Greens Salad
    The simple dressing for this simple salad is so good. You can make it and just keep it in the fridge to drizzle on any green salad.
  • Christmas cookies
    Of course!
