Holiday Feast Kit with Braised Beef Short Ribs
Each Holiday Feast Kit serves 4 people and comes with ingredients for Braised Beef Short Ribs and 4 sides. Order multiple kits to feed a crowd! This season is filled with special occasions, and our Holiday Feast Kit is perfect for any of them – with a beautiful winter dinner of braised beef ribs in orange glace de viande (a sauce of concentrated beef stock and orange); herbed mashed potatoes made with buttermilk and garlic; roasted brussels sprouts garnished with pomegranate and pecans; honey-glazed carrots and sweet baby turnips; and a salad a winter lettuces and apple. With the main course precooked and packaged to heat and serve, the entire feast comes together in about an hour. Braised Beef Short Ribs with Orange Glace de Viande Tender beef in a rich sauce is perfect for a special celebration. Fresh orange juice added to the reduced beef stock gives it a festive twist. Buttermilk, Herb & Garlic Mashed Potatoes By cutting back on the butter and replacing it with buttermilk, we’ve managed to reduce the calories but keep all the creaminess. The buttermilk even adds a refreshing hint of tang. Honey-Glazed Carrots & Turnips with Lemon Both root vegetables, carrots and turnips complement each other nicely. A touch of honey brings out the sweetness in the carrots and balances the slight heat of the turnips. Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate & Pecans The combination of green brussels sprouts and bright red pomegranate seeds is colorful and festive – and it tastes great, too. Take care when handling pomegranates; that antioxidant-packed, crimson juice can stain. We offer a video of two techniques for removing the edible seeds from the hull and membrane of the fruit; choose whichever way you like best. Winter Lettuces with Apple & Sherry-Shallot Vinaigrette While lettuce prefers cooler weather to grow, harvesting it in the dead of winter is a special treat reserved for warmer climates. In this salad, we relish in those greens, adding tangy mustard and a crunchy-sweet apple as pleasant memories of autumn.
