Braise the Beef and Pass the Smashed Potatoes

By golly Miss Molly … could it get any colder? It was -20 … that’s -20 Fahrenheit not Celsius … this morning when I checked the thermometer at 8 a.m.

Why not fight the cold by filing your house with the warm and wonderful aroma of beef braising with red wine, herbs, spices and lots more? Please, don’t skimp on time! Let the beef braise slowly until its fork tender and you’ll enjoy a delicious, comforting meal on the coldest night of the year.

Need a little inspiration? A few ideas? Here goes!

What could be better than an ode to Julia with Braised Beef Bourguignon. I like to serve it with my favorite Smashed Potatoes.

Maybe you want to pretend you are south of the border with Tex-Mex Braised Beef, Black Beans & Fresh Corn.

Or turn to a classic one pot meal with Beef Braised in Red Wine with veggies and potatoes.

And top it off with Apple Bread Pudding.

Enjoy and bon appétit!
