4 Easy Comfort Food Recipes You Have to Make This Winter

Karl Tessendorf

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 dishes that are our ode to the ultimate in comfort food – rich, belly-filling and, of course, totally delicious.

Braised Beef Shin

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 with paired with the crunchiest roast potatoes, well, it doesn’t get much better. GET THE RECIPE
