Looking for game day menu ideas? A cold afternoon in February seems like the perfect time for warming, hearty dishes and you can score a touchdown with our game-day recipes.
Top 5 Main Dishes for Super Sunday
1. Cassoulet is nothing but French chili – granted, it has a lot of incredible cured meats and heirloom Tarbais beans. It’s what chili dreams of becoming. Essentially it’s a hearty one-pot meal that is best enjoyed with lots of red wine.
2. Korean-style buffalo steak. You can sear the steak in a grill pan if it’s too cold to cook outside. Or you could wear a coat. Either way, this smoky and sweet steak is a winner.
3. Ribs. Is there anything so wonderful? These coffee-rubbed ribs are simple to make and will please everyone at the game. Baby back ribs are best on the grill, though we have enjoyed oven-braised ribs from first bite to the last lick of the bone.
4. Big juicy meatballs can be messy (watch the sauce!) but are always welcome. This recipe can be enjoyed over pasta, but is perfectly delicious on its own, with a hunk of good bread to sop up the sauce.
5. Slow-cooked wild boar shoulder. Eat it on mashed potatoes, pasta, or in a sandwich. This is the beginning of something delicious, saucy, and oh, so tender.
6. How could we resist? It’s not really a main course, but it could be if you eat enough of it. This black truffle mac and cheese recipe makes an everyday food downright elegant. So fancy up your game-viewing party with a big batch of this creamy goodness.
Look for our next game day post on chicken wings. You know they are required feeding.
