Whether you call it Christmas or the holiday season, December is really the time to be festive and the time to celebrate with friends and family in a very special way. Exactly what you need when you are preparing for a dinner party, let alone Christmas dinner. Holidays call for the most decadent dishes of the year. And some of the most sensational dishes to grace your table are the stuffed meat rolls. Just think about a stuffed flank steak roasted to perfection! They are relatively inexpensive, versatile and is great at feeding a group. You can use chicken, pork, lamb, turkey or beef and the stuffing brings variety too: herbs, veggies, hard boiled eggs, dried fruits and so on. Here are some suggestions:
- Matambre – Matambre is an Argentinian stuffed flank steak with all kinds of goodies inside. The stuffing is a mixture of garlic, cilantro, parsley and olive oil, bell peppers and hard boiled eggs.
- Turkey Rolls Stuffed with Sausage and Cranberries – These beautiful turkey rolls are perfect for the Holiday season as well as for dinner parties. For the stuffing you will have to saute the onions, mushrooms with the fresh sage and cook the dried cranberries in white wine in a separate pan. When the roulade is ready cook it in a skillet until each side is browned, than roast in the oven for further 30 minutes.
- Stuffed Flank Steak with Prosciutto and Goat Cheese – The stuffing is an aromatic mix of herbs such as parsley, garlic, walnuts and creamy goat cheese and thin slices of prosciutto.
