Short Rib Pot Pie
In this monthly series, I commit to cooking whatever is on the cover of Bon Appetit, Saveur or maybe some other food magazine. There’s a reason these particular dishes are on the cover – they’re usually the best recipes in the magazine.
This winter is really getting me down. To be honest, I suffered from Seasonal Affective Disorder greatly for several years. It was hard to distinguish between S.A.D. and just really growing to hate my advertising job, but winter just made me want to hide under the covers forever. Waking up in the dark, going to a seriously window-less office cubicle, then coming home in the dark? The worst.
The S.A.D. symptoms greatly improved when I left that job to go to culinary school. While I was still waking up in the dark (as early as 4 a.m.!), I was generally done for the day while it was still light out, leaving time for dog walks and long bike rides in the sunshine. Blogging and freelancing for a living has afforded me an even greater flexibility. Whenever I’m feeling a bit down (or I see the sunshine poking through the winter clouds), I can grab my dog and her winter coat and head out for a walk.
But this winter just will not end. I’m tired of making my dog wear her coat. I’m tired of wearing my coat. And I’m actually getting sick of comfort food. I want to grill! I want to make salads with fresh spring vegetables! I want to eat good berries again! So, I was a little disheartened when I saw that this month’s Bon Appetit had comfort food on the cover again. Like last month’s Chicken and Dumplings, this is a long-simmered stew that really is very delicious. The luscious short ribs glazed with red wine and topped with flaky pastry will warm your bones while you wait…and wait…and wait for spring to get here.
