What is a traditional Christmas dinner menu?
On special occasions such as a Christmas dinner party, meat is the main course like beef tenderloin and multiple sides that can be finger foods or will complement the main course well.
Some Christmas dinner classics are prime rib, roast turkey, green beans, cranberry sauce, baked ham, casseroles, turkey stuffing, scalloped potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and fall pies.
I have broken down all the dinner sides into sections so it can be easier to choose from.
A great tip when making a beef tenderloin is to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. According to kansascitysteaks.com, below is a quick temperature guide:
- Rare: 115°F.
- Medium-Rare: 125°F.
- Medium: 135°F.
- Medium-Well: 145°F.
