Warm Up With These Excellent Cold Weather Dishes

As the temperatures drop and Winter sets in, it's the perfect time to indulge in hearty and protein-packed meals that not only provide comfort but also keep us energized during the colder months. Let's take a look at some excellent protein choices that are ideal for cold weather cooking.

Slow-Cooked Beef Stew:

Winter is synonymous with slow-cooked meals, and a beef stew is a classic choice. The marbling in beef makes it a great source of protein, and the slow cooking process allows the meat to become tender and flavorful. Load it with vegetables like carrots, potatoes, and onions for a family favorite.

Bone In Beef Short Ribs:

Beef short ribs are cut from the plate and include meat, fat, and bone. The bone adds flavor to the meat during cooking and is often left intact for cooking methods like braising or slow roasting. The meat around the bone is known for its rich, flavorful taste and tender texture when cooked properly. Short ribs are commonly used in various culinary dishes, and the bone-in variety is popular for its contribution to the overall taste and presentation of the dish. Serve with mashed potatoes, or over rice, and use the liquid that the ribs slow cooked in to create an outstanding glaze.
