Cool winter weather means that we’re spending more time indoors, so take the opportunity to master a really special dish – something that comforts from the inside out. You can opt to go low and slow, braising or roasting a cut of meat for a few hours until it’s fall-apart tender, or you can go the ultimate comfort route with something just plain naughty, like chicken and waffles. We’ve cooked up four insanely yum and easy comfort food recipes that are our ode to the ultimate in comfort food – rich, belly-filling and, of course, totally delicious.

4 Easy Comfort Food Recipes

Braised Beef Shin

Beef Shin Roast

A whole braised shin takes a long time to make but it really is a thing of beauty. It comes out looking like a Fred Flintstone giant meat lollipop with fall apart, tender meat. The addition of a mountain of onions to the mix makes for a silky gravy, and when paired with the crunchiest roast potatoes, well, it doesn’t get much better.

Southern Fried Chicken and Waffles

If you’ve never had fried chicken and waffles then you really need to look in the mirror and ask yourself, do I even like me? It’s one of life’s truly great comforts with its sweet, salty, crunchy and pillowy combination of flavours.
