My sister and her hubby drove up this afternoon because my side of the family celebrates X-mas on the 24th. I was excited to see them again – but I was even more excited to taste the delicious braised brisket she brought up.
She served it up with two sauces: salsa verde and creme fraiche with fresh horseradish.
I was in charge of the veggie sides, so I prepared a few of my standards:
Cauliflower fried “rice”…
…roasted broccoli and bacon…
…and braised cabbage.
I was fresh out of lard, so I bought a bottle of macadamia nut oil to use as my lubricant of choice.
Get your mind out of the gutter – I tossed my broccoli with a few tablespoons pre-roasting and sautéed my cauliflower rice in a combination of macadamia nut oil and Kerry Gold butter.
Here’s our final spread:
This was my first plate:
Happy holidays everyone!
