  • Cranberry Relish – Traditional holiday flavors made from fresh Granny Smith apples, oranges and cranberries add just the right balance of sweet and tart to any plate.
  • Brazilian Sausage & Apple Dressing – Brazilian-spiced sausage is tossed with breadcrumbs and fresh green apples, then baked with savory herbs until golden brown.

After Thanksgiving and through the holiday season, you can also enjoy a new, premium Vegas Cut New York Strip, as well as the recently introduced Cowboy Bone-in Ribeye. Both of these limited time steaks are aged over 21 days for more flavor and decadent texture.
