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.
