English Pub Offers 31-Pound Christmas Dinner Challenge

A pub in England has cooked up what appears to be the world’s biggest Christmas dinner: a 16,500-calorie mountain of food featuring a turkey heavier than a small baby.  The George Pub and Grill in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, has rustled up a traditional Christmas day feast ”to beat them all,” the owners say.  The feast is made up of an 8,000-calorie turkey weighing 11 pounds, along with 30 stuffing balls and 20 pigs in blankets.  The feast includes 4 pounds of mashed potatoes, 3 pounds of roasted potatoes and an unlimited stream of red wine gravy.  There’s also 8 pounds of roasted vegetables, including just under a pound of green beans, just under 2 pounds of carrots, nearly 2.5 pounds of broccoli, and a little under a pound of brussels sprouts, roasted parsnips, turnips and savoy cabbage each.  It’s a meal that could feed a family of six.  The Christmas dinner is on the menu for a limited time only until December 31.  The feast is the latest creation of pub owner Craig Harker, who is famed for plating up some of the most gut-busting meals the area has ever seen.  The George Pub prides itself with “Man vs. Food”-style contests — which have included an 8,000-calorie kebab challenge and a colossal 220-ounce steak challenge.  But when it comes to the Christmas feast, anyone who manages to finish every last scrap of food within opening hours will get the meal for free.
