I’m not going to lie, this meal is a bit preparation-heavy. My only complaint with Ree’s recipe is her Prep/Cook time estimates. Maybe I’m just a slow poke in the kitchen – it could very well be that – or maybe it was because I was trying to follow the recipe off my computer because my printer is out ink. Whatever the reason was, I want to push you into the kitchen and force you to make this meal…but only when you have the time to make it. This is so good, so hearty, so full of flavor, that I can definitely see why this dish is in virtually every Southern Cookbook on the face of the planet.
Please go to the store, buy the ingredients and run home and make this meal. If your weather is anything like ours (cold, wet, and windy) then this is the perfect dish to warm you up from head to toe!
