6 Braised Meat Dishes to Warm You Up

When the weather cools, there’s nothing like a slow-cooked meat dish to warm you up

Lava Dining’s tacos are a great example of braising done right.

Anju Kimchi Ramen

Head to this popular modern Korean spot for a big, filling bowl of ramen with melt-in-your-mouth pork belly and the warming heat of some kimchi.

Briggs Bone-in Pork Belly

Cooked in a maple braising liquid, this big cut of meat is crispy on top and tender in the middle – perfect for anyone who has a big, meaty appetite.

Candela Slow Roasted Barbecue Pork Ribs

Asian five-spice powder and crushed Sichuan peppercorns bring some flavourful heat to this plate of ribs at this globally inspired restaurant in Mission.

Cibo Bison Cheek Calzone

Braised bison cheek is stuffed into a buttery pastry and served with a sweet ragu sauce and sour cream. Think of this as a well-crafted pizza pop for grown-ups.

Lava Dining Duck Tacos

Tender duck meat is tossed in a sweet, sticky hoisin-based sauce, then placed into tender, steamed taco shells. The perfect dish to stuff off a meal here.

(314 10 St. N.W., 403-283-8608)

Yellow Door Bistro Braised Beef Short Rib Meatball

What’s better than spaghetti and meatballs? A re-imagining of the classic! Braised short rib meat is turned into a big meatball that happily sits on top of spaghetti pasta, coated in a tomato sauce with olives and preserved lemon.

(119 12 Ave. S.W., 403-206-9585, yellowdoorbistro.ca, @yellowdooryyc)
