Imagine succulent short ribs, braised in broth with the fragrant flavorings of garlic and onions. The tender beef, bathing in warm broth, is then topped with toasted sour dough bread and golden melted Gruyere cheese. Sound good?
Imagine no longer, instead pick up a copy of Food Network Chef Alex Guarnaschelli's
cookbook, Old-School Comfort Food
. To further delight your taste buds, pair this with some beer-braised carrots, small tender morsels in a sweet beer glaze with exotic spices. Finish off your meal with a sour cream pumpkin pie, the sweetness of pumpkin perfectly paired with the tangy richness of sour cream, all embraced in a delectable crust.
