Need a main dish (merged)

Tonight I will be serving a nice cab with mashed potatoes and then a chocolate cake for desert. I have yet to pick a main dish and am looking for recommendations. Keep in mind my novice skill level, and I should have about two hours available.

Thanks!

A nice rib eye steak would be my choice. It is easy to make, goes well with your other items, and fits well within your time frame.

If there is much better than a well roasted chicken I don't know about it.

I almost agree.... If your Cab is fairly tannic, then steak will help cut those tannins better than the chick-a-dee!

I'm feeling pretty good about the lamb. How should I prepare it? What about a sauce or something?

The grill may not be an option.

Need Main dish/Novice lamb dish (merged)

I'm making lamb to serve with a nice cab, mashed potatoes, and a chocolate cake.

Grilling was recommended but that may not be viable today. Also, I have no idea how to prepare it or what to season it with.

Recommendations?

I always use stud my meat with garlic and then rub with olive oil and spinkle with salt, pepper, oregano and parsley.

If you bake it in the oven.. put some potatoes around your cut of meat and baste with the juices!! YUMMMMY!!!!!!!
