These turkey alternatives for Thanksgiving are centerpiece-worthy main courses that will garner as much praise as any perfectly cooked bird.
Pork Loin in the Style of Porchetta
A mashup of two Italian classics—arista and porchetta—that's essentially pork roast stuffed with rosemary and more ground pork. Ridiculously easy to make. And even easier to devour.
Smoked Prime Rib
Infused with smoke as it cooks low and slow, this compelling centerpiece is, quite simply, the best and most unique prime rib we've ever tried. And worth standing at the smoker even during the dead of winter.
Going rogue this Thanksgiving? Consider this simple glazed ham has got a sweet and spicy thing going on that's simultaneously subtle and super impressive. And let's face it, leftovers are reason enough to make it.
Roast Duck with Clementines
This is essentially orange-glazed duck with the crispiest skin you've ever experienced. Surprisingly straightforward to make. And even easier to accept the accolades for afterward.
Roast Chicken with Pancetta and Olives
"One of the best chicken recipes ever!" "Crisp-skinned." "Juicy." "Aromatic." "Easy." "Gorgeous." "Heavenly." That's what we're hearing from folks who've tried it.
Roast Leg of Lamb
Plain and perfect, that's what we consider this simple roast lamb recipe. And in a shorter cooking time than usual and with very little fuss.
A lovely labor of love, this lasagna buries fresh pumpkin pasta beneath a quartet of cheeses--mozzarella, Gorgonzola, Fontina, and Parmigiano. Might wanna loosen that belt.
Jamie Oliver's Sunday Roast
An exceptionally tender roast and crisp-as-can-be roasted potatoes that will make any meal memorable beyond words.
Cedar Plank–Grilled Salmon
Imagine, if you can, a technique that imbues salmon with a touch of smoke and ensures your pricey catch doesn't stick to the grate. You're welcome.
