Every year around this time, I find myself scouring through page after page of mouthwatering Thanksgiving recipes that FoodNetwork so graciously provides for Turkey Day year in and year out. Personally, I know that I heavily rely on these recipes for inspiration to get me through my “attempt” to put something edible on the Thanksgiving table. To my surprise though, as I searched through all of Thanksgiving 2011′s recipes, I found virtually nothing that included beef in any capacity. Alright, I decided to then move on to last year’s Thanksgiving recipe archives; still nothing. After several obstinate failed attempts, with a tear in my eye, I realized that Thanksgiving dishes where beef is the star is basically the equivalent to seeing a unicorn – their scarcity is shocking!
So what is a lover of beef delectables to do???
Naturally, the perfect solution to your beef-deprived-blues is to replace this year’s “Turducken” with a “ribeyeroasturger”- In layman’s terms that is a beef roast, stuffed with a ribeye steak, hollowed out and stuffed with gound angus beef. Delicious.
OK, I may have been exaggerating about the “ribeyeroasturger”, but that doesn’t mean that beef should have any less presence on your Thanksgiving table this year. You know that football games will be going full blast, and you can’t have football without a little beef! Seriously, how has this traditional travesty gone on for so long??? I say why not kick this dated custom to the curb and start a “Beef Revolution” in our very own kitchens this year! In fact, President Barak Obama may have quiety started this resolution by granting two turkeys that were set to end up next to the mashed potatoes, an official presidential pardon.The perfect strategy to introducing beef to your Thanksiving meal could be to start off with some beautiful meatballs as an hors d’oeuvre, replace the honey-baked ham with some perfectly seared ribeye steaks, and even garnish your plate with stuffed petite beef pinwheels.
