Peppercorn-Crusted Beef Short Ribs with Sorrel and Radishes

"This is one of those dishes that you’ll anticipate all week—partially because it takes nearly that long to prepare, but mostly because it’s just so darn good! Don’t worry, it’s not all active prep time. The beef rests for 24 hours in the brine and another hour in the peppercorn crust."

Entrees

Fish Vera Cruz

"I absolutely love the briny, salty flavors of this classic Spanish seafood dish. The soft, succulent texture of the fish pairs beautifully with the crisp herbed potatoes."

Helen, the new Greek spot in Rice Village, is all the buzz right now--and it's all good! The setting is cozy and inviting and the food fantastic. One of dishes I fell for is their Feta Brined Chicken. I've had it prepared with wings or with tenderized breasts--either way, it's wonderful. I asked for the recipe and it's surprisingly simple. Enjoy!
