      RECIPE TITLE "Boneless Rib-Eye Roast, Roasted Acorn Squash, and Buttered Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts Recipe"

    Is there anything more evocative to meat lovers than the aroma of roasting beef? It definitely adds to the cozy ambiance when the family is gathered together in the house at Christmas time to celebrate and to share. There are two schools of thought when it comes to roasting: quick roasting, and slow roasting. In general, quick roasting is best for prime cuts such as rib roast, while slow roasting is better for less tender cuts, such as shoulder or round. Sprouts and chestnuts are traditional foods for Christmas and the holiday season, and we serve them together in this seasonal recipe.

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    For Roast:
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 pounds boneless rib eye roast, prime or choice grade

    For Squash:
    2 Acorn squash, cut in half and seeded
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    2 teaspoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons butter

    For Brussels Sprouts and Chestnuts:
    1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and outer leaves removed
    2 cups water
    12 to 16 chestnuts, roasted and peeled
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Beef for All Seasons
    Beef for All Seasons Beef for All Seasons, provides a wide range of seasonal recipes using many different cuts of beef, among them beef tenderloin, tournedos, ground beef, short ribs, brisket, carpacio, and pot roast. The incredibly taste-tempting dishes here include Beef Picadillo Tacos de Oaxaca with Rice and Beans, Skewered Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce, James Beard's Roquefort Broiled Steak with Baked Potatoes, and Beef and Guinness Pie with Mushrooms and Chestnuts.

      RECIPE METHOD

    FOR ROAST: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. To prepare the roast, heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. Sear the beef on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a roasting pan and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Turn down the heat to 375 degrees F, baste with drippings, and roast for 1-1/2 hours for medium-rare to medium, or to the desired doneness. Remove from the oven and let rest on a carving board for 5 minutes before slicing.

    FOR SQUASH: Prepare the acorn squashes about 45 minutes before you are ready to serve. Sprinkle the flesh of the acorn squashes with the ginger, sugar, butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Place flesh side up on a baking sheet and bake in the oven (with the beef) for about 40 minutes, or until tender.

    FOR BRUSSELS SPROUTS AND CHESTNUTS: To prepare the brussels sprouts, make an "x" with a sharp knife on the stem ends and place in a vegetable basket or metal colander set over a saucepan of boiling water. Cover the pan and steam for 8 to 10 minutes or until just tender. Drain and return to the warm pan (off the heat) to dry. Heat the 2 cups of water in a small saucepan and warm the chestnuts through. Drain and add to the sprouts. Transfer to a serving dish and add the butter, nutmeg, and salt and pepper as desired. Toss together gently to coat the sprouts.

    Serve the sliced rib-eye roast with the squash, and the sprouts with chestnuts.

    WINE SUGGESTION: This elegant Christmas dinner requires an equally elegant wine. We suggest a fine Cabernet Sauvignon from California or an equally great French Bordeaux.
