Sunday Supper: Short Ribs over Orzo
There are many things I love about fall including the bright burnt colors of leaves, the cooler temperatures, the change of vegetable scenery at the farmers market, but most of all there is no better season for comfort food. My definition of comfort food includes recipes that are prepared slowly with good ingredients and really fill the house with a smells that evoke memories from childhood or previous good eats!
After coming across this Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs recipe in Bon Appétit magazine I knew this weekend was going to be full of comforting smells. Using grass fed beef short ribs and herbs from the E.A.T. garden, last night's dinner was a perfect Sunday Supper on Saturday.
The recipe called for the ribs to be served over mashed potatoes (another classic comfort food) but I chose to use organic Italian orzo that I had in the cabinet.
I have to say this is a week where leftovers will not go to waste. When it comes to comfort what are you go to meals or memories?
