Beef Roast Sides...

Morning,

Meeting with a family of six growing boys on Sabbath. I'm bringing the sides dishes to go along with fresh beef roast.

What are some of your favorite sides other than the typical mashed potato's, carrots/peas?

Thanks!

I'd go for something a bit different with a green salad made up with Romaine or red leaf lettuce, nasturtiam leaves and flowers, arugala, radishes, and a bit of shredded purple cabbage. Serve with a fruity vinaigrette, or Cesar Salad dressing.

Oven-fried sweet potatoes are very tasty.

Three bean salad, ice cold and without the oil added to the recipe

Artisan Italian bread, crusty and begging to be dipped in gravy or Au Jus.

Rice Pilaf, with roasted red peppers and cilantro.

Potatoes Anna

French Fries with cheese and gravy (what's that called up in Northern Ontario? I know it, but just can't remember it right now).

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Hope it helps.

A true southern girl here but I have friends in Toronto and I remember well the first time I had french fries & gravy. What do I say but OMWord...I was just telling my husband about this dish last night. Boy I love it! Haven't had it in a while but you better believe the next time I have fries - there will be some gravy on the side!

Thanks again!

Ah, I have it! That French Fry with gravy and other things is called Poutine.

Didn't I hear somewhere that gravy is served on everything, south of the Mason/Dixon line? I think y'all even serve it on popsicles..

Of course being a northerner, bred in the deep freeze and 10 foot snowbanks, I had to tease ya just a little.

I thought Poutine was a dish made with cheese curds and a gravy. I didn't know it also had potatoes in it .

I read somewhere that Poutine is French Fries topped with Cheese Curds and Gravy.

To OP:My suggestion for sides- Succotash (Corn and Lima Beans)
Steamed mixed veggies with butter and lemon pepper. (green and yellow squash, carrots, sweat onions, broccoli, cauliflower ect.. mix up according to taste).
