Recipe: Black Eyed Suzie's beer-braised short ribs

Meat and potatoes make an iconic wintertime meal for good reason. When the air outside is chilly, we want nothing more than meals that are warm, soothing and stick-to-your-ribs hearty.

At Bel Air’s new Black Eyed Suzie’s, Chef Jacob Nelson serves up a savory, stout-spiked spin on the classic combination. Nelson pairs sour cream-laced mashed potatoes with tender short ribs braised overnight in a mixture of vegetables, garlic, herbs and dark beer. The stout gives the meat intense, rich flavor — perfect for a cold winter’s night.
