Sometimes at the holidays we have so much food of the same kind, we get burned out and want something that is not turkey, chicken and dressing and all the sides we think we have to prepare to go with the bird or ham. If you’re tired of the same old, same old, try one of these meat dishes for your next dinner or gathering. Let beef stand to room temperature one hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together salt, pepper, garlic, thyme and fennel seeds in small bowl.
