The whole reason for making the dinner rolls today was I wanted roast beef with mashed potatoes, gravy, and green beans for dinner. The menu demands dinner rolls. Dinner rolls demand roast beef with mashed potatoes, gravy, and green beans.

I started off with a petite filet roast and seasoned it with Hunter’s Recipe Classic Montreal Steak seasoning. Great stuff. Great flavor.

I did a quick broil – less than 15 minutes total – and it came out perfectly medium-rare.

I french-cut the green beans and after steaming, just did a quick saute in a bit of butter, salt and pepper. The potatoes were mashed with sour cream, and the gravy was pan juices, red wine, mushrooms, and beef stock.

It was a relatively simple meal to put together, but I did manage to dirty four pots. Not a record by any means, but not bad for a Monday…

And there’s cake for dessert…
