Hey there, you busy gals and guys. I have a pattern I’d like to discuss with you. I like to call it “I want to eat a dinner that tastes like it took me 5 hours to make, but really I’d like it to take me approximately 1/25th of that time.”
I’d like it to taste like my grandmother made dinner, but it to be easy enough that my husband could do it.
I’d like to invite someone over and act like it was such an inconvenience for me to make them dinner, and they’ll believe me because it tastes true, when really I’m just being an ass-hat.
I’d like to win the lottery, too. So, work on that one – because I have the impressive dinner in no time covered.
See, when you braise meat in wine, great things happen. While it tastes great, sometimes it’s hard to replicate that flavor in a short amount of time. Using alcohol helps, so does a quick sear on your meat to keep the juices in.
This will take you about a half hour to throw together, and it will taste like it’s been simmering away all day. Life win!
