This, or rather last, year for Xmas dinner I was a big fat cheat and for our main course made the ‘thanksgiving roast’ featured on the Ellen show.
A video of the recipe is here:

I reduced the quantities (by around 1/3 per ingredient) to make this suitable for 2, used pre-prepared Veg stock (as opposed to the “no chicken” stock recommended) and seasoned with mixed herbs, onion powder, garlic powder & mustard powder to replace the Blackened Steak Magic spice – which, as far as I know, is not available in the UK. I found it a bit of a pain to find Cheesecloth in Edinburgh, but got lucky at a local Italian deli; though a haberdashery may be a better bet.
