MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — When you think of comfort food, what comes to mind? For some it’s soup. For others it’s mashed potatoes.
For David Schultz, who is executive chef at Crave at the Mall of America, it’s a nice raised beef pot roast.
“Cooked real low and slow, with onions and carrots and celery, and mushrooms. You have to have the mushrooms, they soak in so much flavor,” Schultz said.
He added you can’t forget the mashed potatoes and gravy. If you’re looking for other ideas, consider roast chicken.
“Buy a meat thermometer and while cooking brush the skin with some butter and it gets it nice and crisp,” he said.
WCCO’s Susie Jones asked how to do the pot roast and he explained it starts with a nice big roasting pan.
“So I’ll take that roast and I’ll coat it in flour, and I’ll brown the sides,” he said.
