Are we to assume that your main entree then is a Cooked Ham ?

Knowing the rest of your Menu (ie what she cannot eat) might be helpful in making alternative suggestions.

@flapperphilosopher:  If it were me, I’d be heading to a kosher caterer for her, have something pre-made, that meets the criteria and is ready to go!  That way, no mistakes will be made and she’ll appreciate your sensitivity.

If i were the one eating something totally different than anyone else, I would bring my own plate…

Yeah, I think we need to know what she can’t eat in order to suggest something else… or, go to a Kosher deli and order her a plate.

@flapperphilosopher:  Can she eat many of the sides?  I would think that if there are enough “other” dishes, not being able to eat the main dish might not matter.

EDIT: Although, adding a nice beef roast could be delicious too (I think that can be kosher right?)

@housebee:  it depends on how strict she is about it, certain foods aren’t even supposed to be stored together, and most Kosher households maintain two separate refrigerators.

In that case, I’d just get an individual tenderloin steak for her and roast it, so she has the same thing as everyone else, minus the cheese.  It can be cooked at the same time as your stuffed tenderloin, just for less time.  I’d pop it in to time it so that it finished at the same time as your other foods.

@flapperphilosopher:  I second @Nona99. Go to the Jewish Deli and pick up something there. They will have kept the food stored properly, will not have any bad mixing of milk & meat and you won’t have to cook something extra!

@Nona99:  Hmm I didn’t know that, sounds like it’s something that takes quite a bit of preparation/planning.  I like cheeseburgers (and shrimp, scallops, sausage pizza, etc) way too much to even attempt suggesting a kosher dish lol.

@flapperphilosopher:  My ex boyfriend had a very good family friend that kept kosher, and we would often have salmon as the main dish when we went to visit, could that be possible?  You could easily sear it off in a pan on the stove top (freeing up the oven/slow cooker).  I don’t really have any salmon recipes (I’m allergic to it), but I’m sure you can find something online, or maybe some other bees can chime in.

@Nona99:  Ok, so maybe I lied in my previous post lol.
