Buy Beef Stew Meat or A Brisket

Skip tradition with alternative affordable holiday dinner meals that won't break the bank. Generally, Easter Roasts often use high-quality cuts of meat like tenderloin or sirloin, instead, consider serving beef stew meat. Moreover, throw everything in a slow cooker or pot, and away you go, back to the Easter Egg Hunt. Leaving it to slow cook and will be just as tender at a much nicer price point. Affordable beef brisket from your local butcher store is ideal for a tender delicious meal. Sometimes it is good to call your local butcher a day before to put your order in, and don't hesitate to ask about the best ways to serve or prepare. After all, he is the expert.

Alternative & Affordable Italian Cuisines 

If you're skipping the traditional dishes, how about an Italian-style Easter? Mixing things up with these delicious meals. Affordable alternatives to your holiday dinner.

Italian-style Easter Braciole - a rolled beef flank stuffed with breadcrumbs and two Italian kinds of cheese (substitute to choice), rolled and tied, and oven-braised in white wine and marinara sauce.

Vegetable Fettuccine Alfredo - A holiday dinner doesn't need to be elaborate. To brighten up the traditional alfredo, toss in spring vegetables like asparagus, peas and shiitake mushrooms. A sprinkle of chives and a dash of lemon zest add the perfect finishing touch to this punched-up pasta.

Shrimp Francese over Linguine - pasta and shrimp placed over linguine is ideal if having a small crowd for Easter dinner. Simple, quick and easy while being an upscale dish.
