Carrot Mash with Crème Fraîche
Simmered carrots are lightly buttered, but a bit of tart cream adds an extra-silky richness. We like the smooth texture you get from pureeing in a food processor; if you prefer a chunkier texture, use a potato masher. Garnish with green onions for added color.
Roast Beef Tenderloin with Cognac Butter
Using tenderloin, a leaner cut of steak, allows you to indulge in a flavored butter topper. You'll only use half of the cognac butter, but make all of it--cutting the amount in half doesn't work as well. Use the leftover butter within the week, on pasta or over fish, or freeze up to one month; bring to room temperature before serving.
Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Slow-Fried Shallots
This recipe takes richness to a new level with the crunchy fried topping. Slow-frying allows the shallots to brown and crisp evenly without any burned pieces.
