Roasted beef tenderloin makes an especially festive Christmas dinner. Anything green, such as baby green beans or steamed spinach, would be a beautiful side dish to let the colors on the plate play on a holiday theme.
The beef recipe is punchy and therefore needs the biggest wines. The red bell pepper and olives in the filling could echo nicely with a middleweight Cabernet that carries a touch of the same flavors. You won’t have to hock the silver, though: Good examples such as J. Lohr of Monterey, Benziger of Sonoma, and Wynns Coonawarra Estate from Australia can be found for $15 or under.
