As the rain really starts to fall in the U.K I am all about comfort food and these Beef Recipes featured below really called to the chilled, dampness within. How could you fail to not be warmed right through?
#CookBlogShare is a weekly link party where recipes are shared, we comment on each other’s cooking creations and generally indulge in all things food related! It’s the place where food bloggers can share their latest posts and for you to find new food blogs too.
So as the rain just keeps falling, what else can we do but be drawn to the kitchen? My head is filled with meal planning as my foodie yearnings change to stews, hot pots, pies and warmly spiced curries.
It is one of my favourite parts of the changing seasons. I love to welcome each with a change in menu. The older I get the more refined but exact (pedantic) that menu gets. But I am always on the look out for more great recipes and I fell in love with quite a few here. I’m beefily inspired.
I have a couple/loads of great beef recipes myself. In fact my Slow Cooker Beef Joint is one of the most popular recipes on my blog and the one I cook the most. It is my go to Sunday Lunch recipe and just the thing for this gloomy weather.
My Slow Cooker Beef Casserole is another family favourite. Stick some dumplings on there and I could eat it in the garden without a coat on.
So I could not help but fall head over heels at Recipes Made Easy Savoury Mince Cobbler.
My mother used to cook something similar at home and I have firmly resolved to add this recipe to my comfort food repertoire.
It is a savoury beef mince and onion filling topped with cheese scones no less! How delicious can you get? Look at that meaty gravy. I could dive right in.
The next recipe is Meatball Soup with Vegetables and Tomatoes from The Foodle Club.
It is a one pan big tasty bowl of juicy meatballs and vegetables in a beefy broth. Thrifty and a real family favourite. I love the fact that you can use up whatever vegetables you have in your fridge.
What I start to crave with the colder weather is warming Curries and this Beef and Sweet Potato Curry from Donna Dundas- fabulous family food, caught my curry eye.
It’s juicy, tender and a healthier option than your usual takeaway. Big on flavour but super easy, you can mix up the vegetables here too. Great for a weekend fakeaway or family get together.
The final beefy recipe is the wonderful sounding Molle de Olla:Mexican Beef Stew from Maricruzavalos.
It is a one pot soup and not spicy so all the family can enjoy a big bowl with ease. At it’s heart is a broth made from the bones and meat together with some vegetables, chillies and spices. The result is a richly flavoured, smoky soup made the old fashioned way.
Above all else the colder weather makes me crave one spice like no other….cinnamon. So I just had to give these two recipes a #CookBlogShare shout out.
My own personal cinnamon recipe favourite/obsession are my fluffy Cinnamon Rolls. Some days I have to stop whatever I’m doing to make them immediately. They bring me such joy. I’m not joking! It is such a wonderful spice and teamed with sugar and flour some serious foodie shizzle occurs.
Pumpkin Cake from Lost In Food.
This cake is full of warming spices, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, with just a touch of clove and allspice berry. A perfect pairing for the sweet pumpkin. Sounds absolutely heavenly. Put the kettle on.
Chocolate and Cinnamon Shortbread from Tin and Thyme.
Chocolate and buttery shortbread with added cinnamon made in a free form circle and cut into moreish squares and sprinkled with sugar. This I just have to bake. Choclette does chocolate baking like no other!
